Amazing images.

The Saudi Arabian Monetary Agency in Riyadh by Minoru Yamasaki in 1981. The architect, already known to blend Islamic forms with concrete in his Saudi projects, creates this as the pinnacle of his work in the Kingdom. The travertine and bronze clad façade shroud an introversive atrium that reflects an unknown paradise. The atrium regulates climate and creates a quiet, contemplative atmosphere that is shielded from the loud and sweltering air of the exterior. In addition it tames the harsh sunlight and gently allows it to enter through its skylights. The hallways around the it feature verandas formed by elegant, graceful travertine screens that turn the hard material into a lace-like substance. The manipulation of these qualities makes this a flawless example of the modernization of Islamic architecture. 
Amazing images.

Hi friends in Shanghai - do you know anyone who would like to adopt or foster a kitten who is secretly a super-hero?
“Xiaobai” was abandoned in my lane and is now about 6 weeks old. She was born with one blind eye (her left eye is totally white, which I think makes her quite special - like Storm from X-Men), but otherwise is in perfect health and very active. 
Please spread the word or msg me- samanthaculp@gmail.com

Hi new followers - very happy to have you, but please follow at Border Studies as that’s my active Tumblr (this one is just a shell corporation, so to speak).

Thank you!

Follow me at: border-studies.tumblr.com

Hello to new followers! But please follow my main Tumblr at Border Studies, as I rarely post anything here, and you don’t want to miss the cornucopia of experimental Chinese accessories, cassette typography, gothic babysitters and other Internet magic

Go to Border Studies (http://border-studies.tumblr.com) for Tumblr-ness.

Border Studies is a haphazard collection of visual inspiration from New Territories, an experimental studio for research and production based in Shanghai. Threads: Asia, art, landscapes, cultural remixing, the aesthetics and problematics of exploration, absurd and arresting images
