swedish studio medium invited nine architects to design buildings for nine different clients, as part of the building blocks exhibition at fargfabriken in stockholm. the clients ages range from 6 to 16 years old. featured in the show are the results of the collaboration including models and real buildings.

the show aims to present the process of architecture, highlighting  the roles and relationships required in the design and construction  of a building. a brief for each building was developed from a meeting  between client and architect. each architect then responded to the varied requirements which included singing windows, an africa-shaped bed (with egypt-shaped pillow), a cupcake room, a torture chamber and  a lookout tower.

the architects included: AOC, helen & hard, hollmen reuter sandman, j&t architects, kjellander sjoberg, kod arkitekter, terroir, wilhelmson architects and zizi & yoyo.

the ‘building blocks’ exhibition is on until 26th september, 2010.

  • If you’ve seen Swype or used it, you know why this omission makes the list. Typing on a touchscreen is a challenge as the flat glass surface offers few clues to where your fat fingers are precisely making contact. It’s an error-prone process that gives one a longing for the raised keys of the BlackBerry keyboard from Research In Motion (RIMM – News).

    But the Swype keypad software helps tame the new medium. Swype follows the pattern of your finger movements to type words or predict words without the usual hunting and pecking.

    Apple did wonders with the touchscreen, but Swype makes it more useful for those among us who like to type.[b][url=]lineage adena[/url][/b]

    Okay, it’s not totally bait and switch, but Apple’s hot new iPhone video calling feature, FaceTime, comes with lots of asterisks and a limited applicability.

    Say you want to video chat with someone using the Apple iPhone 4. That someone has to have a WiFi connection and he has to use the same application on his own iPhone 4. You’re looking at a small club of people — not exactly an application of global Skype-like proportions.
