Guardianes by Xavier Mascaró

Monday, January 4th, 2010

Saw these amazing outdoor iron sculptures ‘Guardianes’ by Madrid & New York based artist Xavier Mascaró in Plaza Nueva, Seville just before Christmas. The exhibition runs until January 20th 2010 and if you are passing Seville, it is well worth the visit.

GRO Architects’ Best Pedestrian Routes

Monday, January 4th, 2010

Found this really cool pedestrian safety route in Lower Manhattan, New York back in 2007. It really is a clever way of directing people away from the danger of a construction site in an attractive way. It would be great if local Councils here got artists, architects and designers to design similar Best Pedestrian Routes for long-term construction sites in our cities. See GRO Architects for further details on their thinking behind the Best Pedestrian Route on the corner of Broadway and John Street.
