10 Instagrams of the Design World
A look at some of
‘s favorite design posts of the week, from cabins and courtscrapers to legos and Yayoi Kusama.
1. Bizarre, beautiful houses hidden in the woods of Vermont.
2. This Yayoi Kusama exhibit is mesmerizing crowds at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art.
Psst…wanna hear a little Kusama secret? The best time to visit the exhibition is not on the weekends, but on a weekday evening. Here you’ll experience a less crowded version of Kusama’s world. See you after dark. Tuesday – Friday open until 22.00 #museumtip #secrets #lesscrowdedkusama #ininfinity #yayoikusama #louisianamuseum

4. New York’s so-called Courtscraper by Bjarke Ingels is nearing completion.
5. Cabin design by OFIS Architects + AKT II + Harvard GSD Students.
6. A Tribeca penthouse by ODA New York.
Can you believe the current owner of this 1892 #TriBeCa #warehouse bought it on eBay?! He then hired ODA New York to design a jealousy inducing penthouse atop the upper two levels, creating the triplex of our dreams. In the den, stained-oak floorboards run beneath a mixed-media work. Tour the entire 14,000-square-foot space on InteriorDesign.net. Photography by Frank Oudeman/Otto. #design #architecture #interiordesign #penthouse
7. Architects and designers from Snøhetta, BIG, James Corner Field Operations and SHoP Architects are judging a lego competition today at the AIANY Center for Architecture.
8. Épure by Yabu Pushelberg snags Best Lighting Scheme at the Restaurant and Bar Design Awards!
9. Can you believe this facade belongs to a grocery store in Salt Lake City by SOM?
Can a grocery store add architectural distinction to a neighborhood? The contemporary design of @harmonsgrocery, in downtown Salt Lake City, achieves this—and this facade photo suggests that it’s all in the details. Corrugated metal panel screens wrap the glass exterior walls, providing shade while heightening the building’s visual interest. At times sheer and transparent, and at others opaque, the appearance of the perforated metal modulates throughout the day, as Salt Lake’s City’s bright light rakes across its surface. By night, the screens reveal the store’s glowing interior, offering a subtle yet evocative display of urban life. Photo © Dana Sohm #Architecture #Design #SaltLakeCity #Facade
