Rome-based architects David Vecchi and Emanuela Ortolani are proposing a new design for a New York City theater. The idea behind this project is to reignite the theatrical spirit that "Broadway" encapsulates. The inventive design places the playhouse high above on a sort of stage, ironically. The concept design present the structure with its own spotlights, appearing like a tiny…
The Lower East side may soon be getting a new park...underground! The newly nicknamed "Low Line" park would be found in an unused trolley terminal under Delancy Street.

Whenever I see a statue or a sculpture, particularly those of people, I look for the perfect angle to make them come alive. I'm lucky to live at a place that's perfect for this, New York City. Here are some shots from my series entitled Statues in the Sky.

It's the sign of the times when "street art" makes its way (legally) onto a school wall. Brazilian artists Otavio and Gustavo Pandolfo (aka 'Os Gemeos') and graffiti artist Futura have just completed an 80-feet-high mural at William T. Harris elementary school, in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City. Backed by Nike and driven by New York-based creative studio… Continue
