We know. We'll make one for you.&nbsp;We wrote the book on kustom knowledge paradise. Crash out on local cruises, assemble a barbecue that chars your desires into fractured remnants of a base, mangy cookout. Turn up the Deathgrips, reclining into esperanza composed of megamillion ocean properties and the gnarliest Cabron.&nbsp;The bird of paradise is so fuckin huge it'll blow your mind dude. It's like a major fuckin feathered Buddha that just dumped out on your lawn after it majestically ate all your watermelon and Tejin and tortillas. Douchebag.&nbsp;Fuck it. Let's get wasted. On air.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Experience laxness. Let your mind just kinda slip outta your ear, live, everyone'll see it, other people will watch your sunset, your patio-loving, and ultimate synechdotal living. Slip into the Camero and seriously floor it through the neighbourhood right now. Yeah in the Camero. Yeah it's a live broadcast. This shit's fer real.&nbsp;You could fully go to the Bonaventure or Abbot Kinney or just chill in Redondo, but don't go to La Cabana. The one on Rose and Lincoln. That place is shitty dude, fulla has-beens. Naw let's get lit and chill here. This place is sick. They call it Silicon Beach for more than one reason, lolz.&nbsp;You won't even feel like you're here, it's like, you know when you're doin a cleanse and your mind and your body are just like fully hashing it out, like you don't even feel like a human, bruh, you're just this like animal being? Like this space, and this time, are just like one big ocean, or like a reef in the ocean, like made of gold, super fuckin luxurious shit right there... Like all the other things, man, the objects, but like, big-ass objects, are just flailing around, and you can pick them like a fuckin kumquat, even though you're also a part of them, ya know? It's not even funny dude, what we're gettin at.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Why not dip into a totally accessible romantic clean lined beach front provision to be witnessed by spectators? You'll melt, you'll just die. If not, I'd be happy to arrange another workout for you this week, so you can experience our unique offering again, firsthand, and I can answer any questions that you may have about our July SummerChallenge as well.</p> </div> <p style="text-align: justify;">Kristin Luke (born 1984) is an artist who represents The Air Inn Venice.&nbsp; <br /> Recent exhibitions and events include: <em>Synchronise.

Haworth Tompkins are also architects of the RCA's new campus in Battersea: the Dyson Building (opened 2012) and the Woo Building,&nbsp;due to open in 2015.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Haworth Tompkins&rsquo; Everyman Theatre was the winner of the RIBA Stirling Prize 2014. The building is&nbsp;the studio&rsquo;s first completely new theatre, and the culmination of both their many explorations into&nbsp;the theatre of the 21st century and a decade-long collaboration with the Liverpool and Merseyside&nbsp;Theatres Trust.&nbsp;The new Everyman Theatre replaces the nineteenth century home of an iconic Liverpool institution.&nbsp;The building makes use of the constrained topography of the site by arranging the public spaces&nbsp;around a series of half levels, establishing a continuous winding promenade from street to&nbsp;auditorium.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">It is an exceptionally sustainable building; not only did the construction re-use 90% of the material&nbsp;from the old theatre, but all spaces are naturally ventilated including the auditorium with its 440&nbsp;seats. Clever, out of sight concrete labyrinths supply and expel air whilst maintaining total acoustic&nbsp;isolation. It is one of the first naturally ventilated auditoria in the UK.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The Stirling Prize Judges said: &lsquo;The new Everyman in Liverpool is truly for every man, woman&nbsp;and child. It cleverly resolves so many of the issues architects face every day. Its context &ndash; the&nbsp;handsome street that links the two cathedrals &ndash; is brilliantly complemented by the building&rsquo;s scale,&nbsp;transparency, materials and quirky sense of humour, notably where the solar shading is transformed&nbsp;into a parade of Liverpudlians.&rsquo;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Speakers:</strong></p> <ul> <li style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Gemma Bodinetz</strong>, Artistic Director at the Everyman will introduce the theatre and talk about the&nbsp;commissioning process.</li> <li style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Steve Tompkins</strong>, Director at Haworth Tompkins, will talk about the building and the Studio&rsquo;s ethos.&nbsp;</li> <li style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Ricky Burdett</strong>, Director of LSE Cities will be in conversation with Gemma and Steve following the lecture.</li> <li style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Adam Kaasa</strong>, founding fellow of Theatrum Mundi and Research Fellow in Architecture at the Royal College of Art will chair the evening.</li> </ul> Tue, 25 Nov 2014 16:21:54 +0000 Alex Hartley - Royal College of Art - November 25th 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">Artist and RCA alumnus Alex Hartley&rsquo;s work addresses complicated and sometimes contradictory attitudes toward the built and natural environments. His practice is wide ranging, comprising wall-based sculptural photographic compositions, room-sized architectural installations and, more recently, unique photographic works with sculptural elements inserted as low-relief into the surfaces of large-scale colour prints. Uniting these works is an investigation of modern architecture and the ways in which it is conceived and presented. Often destabilising ideas of &lsquo;iconic&rsquo; architecture, Alex Hartley&rsquo;s practice allows room for multiple perceptions of and uses for architecture.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In his book <em>LA Climbs &ndash; Alternative uses for Architecture,</em>&nbsp;published in 2003, Alex explored differing ways to experience architecture that included climbing the 3rd Street Tunnel.</p> Tue, 25 Nov 2014 16:17:52 +0000 - Royal College of Art - October 28th - December 19th <p style="text-align: justify;">An exhibition commemorating students and staff of the Royal College of Art who served in World War One.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Exhibits have been selected from the National Archives, Imperial War Museum and individual collections as well as the RCA&rsquo;s own extensive archive and student files. They record a wide range of responses, attitudes and experiences including correspondence from those anxious to join up and the College&rsquo;s replies to them and, from 1916, letters from those refusing to do so. There are also letters from bereaved parents and official forms from those hoping to return to their studies in a post-war world.</p> Tue, 25 Nov 2014 16:16:35 +0000
