Before-And-After Pics Showing How Famous Cities Changed Over Time

The world has evolved so rapidly over the last 100 years that it's difficult to imagine just how much things have changed during that time. Many of the world's most famous cities - like Kuala Lumpur for example, or Hong Kong - bare little resemblance to their earlier selves, and cities such as Dubai didn't even exist at all until fairly recently.

I reconstruct whole cities in pen and ink and not a single little detail is lost

The city fascinates me, no it totally absorbes me, actually it excites me to such degree that I feel like spending hours, days, weeks and sometimes months recreating in fine detail my impressions of all great cities I’ve visited. Mainly from memory, I reconstruct whole cities in pen and ink and not a single little detail is lost on me: streetlights, subway entrances, shopfronts, park benches, yes, even curtains in windows.

Nest 05

This project is simply called “Nests” and mimic the random human activity in the urban landscape. Jakub Geltner was inspired by the characteristics of several cities on his travels around the world where he often found different unplanned, almost organically placed, elements that interfere with the typical facades of the buildings in specific cities.

I Cover City Streets In Lace Street Art
Gingerina
22 jun 2015 11:26

I create works that are somewhere in between street art, pottery, painting and sculpture. Most of my work consist of prints of traditional laces, made in clay or painted on the walls. Why laces? Because in laces there is an aesthetic code, which is deeply embedded in every culture. In every lace we find symmetry, some kind of order and harmony, isn’t that what we all seek for instinctively?

In Bea Crespo and Andrea G. Portoles’ delightful “Brunchcity” series, paper dioramas form iconic skylines that pop out of foods for which major cities are famous. Crespo, an illustrator, created the charming drawings, selecting and sketching landmarks that represent each city. For example, the ruins of Athens' Parthenon rises out of a dish of Greek yogurt, Cuba's capital building and a mural of Che Guevera stand on a bedrock of beans and rice, and a paper Coliseum teeters on the...

Kowloon City

Kowloon Walled City was a densely populated, largely ungoverned settlement in Kowloon, Hong Kong. Originally a Chinese military fort, the Walled City became an enclave after the New Territories were leased to Britain in 1898. Its population increased dramatically following the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong during World War II. In 1987, the Walled City contained 33,000 residents within its 6.5-acre (0.026 km2; 0.0102 sq mi) borders. From the 1950s to the 1970s, it was controlled by Triads...

Sex Boxes in Zurich
Helen

We've seen photos of German sex boxes about three years ago. This time the authorities of the Swiss city of Zurich placed the sex boxes in their city. A prostitute must pay about $5.40 a day to use these boxes. The couple must stay inside the car during the whole process. The boxes are opened from 5pm till 5am.
