you may have noticed the growing blogroll to your right… okay,  maybe not.  anyways, yesterday’s mention of the blog centre for the aesthetic revolution reminded me that i’ve been meaning to add more links to ayh.  here goes a first push:

 

mammoth – a great blog covering urbanism, infrastructure, landscape and all the hybrids between.  a recent favorite post involved the unintended deep swimming hole in indiana created by the empire state building.

deconcrete – in a similar vein to mammoth, deconcrete focuses on the politics of the built environment involving urbanism, infrastructure, architecture, and more.  i can’t remember when i first came across this blog, but whoever manages to connect jacuzzi bubbles to economic bubbles has to be brilliant.  they’ve also been involved, as well as, documenting some great projects occurring throughout europe – today’s image comes from deconcrete’s lense.

pruned – there’s a theme developing here.  pruned covers issues of landscape architecture and more.  it was dormant for a while, but they seem to be back!  a recent post on the old tradition of flooding piazza navona is a great reminder of what urban space can become and how we need to revive the past.

kuu – breaking this landscape + urbanism trend is a simple blog by the shanghai base architecture firm kuu.  this has become a constant source of simple, but powerful images, thoughts and architecture.  point in case: a post on a young sejima’s manifesto and a beautiful house in singapore.

centre for the aesthetic revolution – previously mentioned above and yesterday.  this great blog covers latin american artists in galleries across europe and latin america.  here are a couple of posts documenting the events/exhibitions at el eco.

 

phew.  that’s it for now.  more to come later in july.

notes:

[title]     today’s title comes from wikipedia’s page on the guidelines for linking.  i suppose it makes sense that they would have a page on the etiquette of linking and pitfalls of over/underlinking.  please don’t over link or under link.

[image]     as noted above, today’s image comes from deconcrete’s post on partytopias.
