Selectism | Around the Web

01. Bike Rack by Studio Tractor

“I got a note from Mike Tower of Studio Tractor Architecture the other day showing off his firm’s collaboration with metalworker Peter Kirkiles, a cotter pin-inspired bike rack built in conjuction with Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum’s new exhibition Bike Rides. The show opens today at the Ridgefield, Connecticut, museum.” (dwell)

02. Another Man’s 9th Issue

““AnOther Man speaks to the ‘other’ man, a man not being catered to currently by fashion magazines. AnOther Man mixes credible modern icons with art, music, high impact fashion photography and strong opinionated writing by key cultural voices. A magazine for men who like their lifestyle rocked with passion and intelligence, luxury and a sense of adventure.” (anotherman)

03. Hedgehog: A Concert Pavilion Made From Traffic Cones

“NYC-based architecture firm EFGH has really made the most out of a tiny budget and a wildly short timeline with Hedgehog, a 15’x15′ performance pavilion. The stage hosted a lineup of diverse street performers as part of an effort by Virgin Mobile to raise money for youth homelessness.” (core77)

04. Human Powered Velomobile Bikes over Land or Sea (above)

“Now that it’s clear that the flying cars we were promised as youngsters are not going to appear anytime soon, we can perhaps take comfort in the arrival of the brilliant HEPAV 1.1, a human-electric powered amphibious vehicle from the creative mind of Czech designer and inventor David Buchwaldek. Like an eco-superhero’s signature ride, the HEPAV 1.1 can travel the streets in style and drive straight into the water without missing a beat. Sustainable, human-powered locomotion never looked so good.” (inhabitant)
