Trevor Young is a quintessentially American painter. He makes no bones about his affection for the trappings of car culture, life on the road, and 60s West Coast art. His main subject is modernism’s footprint on the outposts of Americana—places typified by harsh artificial light and hard shadows on concrete.  [via]

Here is an old, but very interesting, interview of the artist.

CASA JARDINS

Casa Jardins is a residence designed and built by CR2 Arquitetura in São Paulo, Brazil. The concept of the house is captured by the large concrete box that makes up the first floor. The box has tears, creating voids that illuminate without penetrating the privacy of the residents. The voids are filled with lush, contemplative gardens, which can be viewed from all environments, creating a visual connection between the ground and the first floor.

PALAZZO MONGIÒ DELL' ELEFANTE DELLA TORRE

Palazzo Mongiò dell' Elefante della Torre (a quite spectacular title - totally worth it) is a 1723 palace located at Galatina, Puglia, Italy. In the 2013 the palace has been fully restored after more than 50 years of neglect. The owners Antonio Lodovico Scolari and Christian Pizzinini have personally overseen the work and well-appointed interiors in every detail. Rare vintage pieces of Giò Ponti, Franco Albini, Luigi Caccia Dominioni, Ignazio Gardella, Osvaldo Borsani... mixed with contemporary art, in a unique space that is a guest house and an art gallery.
