PyeongChang, South Korea Has The Darkest Building On Earth And There’s Nothing Sinister About It

Don’t worry. Hell is not upon us, yet. The “darkest building on Earth” is actually a Hyundai pavilion/art installation presented by artist Asif Khan at the 2018 Winter Olympics, happening from February 9-25 at PyeongChang, South Korea. Essentially a black silhouette, especially when viewed in low light, the building appears a regular straight sided structure, but it is really not. The blackness of the building managed to conceal its parabolic sides and the many tiny lights scattered around its exterior surfaces further serve to distract observers from this fact.

Over the weekend, LEGO marked the 60 years of LEGO bricks with a special brick: a giant-ass 10-foot tall LEGO brick sculpture that are made out of 133,300 regular size LEGO bricks.

Car Made Out Of Snow Was So Real That It Almost Fool the Police

This year saw some record breaking cold in some countries. Even in tropical countries like Singapore, where heat between 29-36 degrees Celsius (84-97 Fahrenheit) is a norm, it saw a record 21+ (70 Fahrenheit) temperature. You can only imagine if a cold spell were to hit a country that is already known for pretty crazy winters. One such country would be Canada, particularly in Montreal in the state of Quebec, where it experienced a colder-than-usual temperatures over last few months. With the cold, comes the abundance of snow and in the case of Montreal, a resident, machinist and woodworker Simon Laprise, took the opportunity to have some fun.

Photographer Sends Anti-Violence Message With Camera Gear “Weapons”

Carrying placards in a rally/demonstration is one of the many ways of expressing your disgust for violence, but for photographer Jason Siegel, he chose to take on the creative route to share his distaste for violence, in particular gun violence.

Star Wars Sculptures Made From Recycled LV Bags Are Vuitton-tastic!

Leather is a material that is synonymous with luxury and obviously, it wouldn’t be a material of choice for armor that goes on, say, a Stormtrooper or an AT-AT. However, that does not stop artist Gabriel Dishaw’s imagination from running wild. Gabriel has created a series of Star Wars busts and sculptures that features leather as the main material as opposed to the norm of metals, plastics and woods. And he did not just use any leather; he uses old, discarded Louis Vuitton small leather goods like purses and bags that would otherwise be part of the landfill.

Entitled “Corp Gear,” this new project is a collection of weapons fashioned out of corporate logos.

Full-size LEGO McLaren 720S Finished By Fans At Goodwood Festival of Speed

At this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed that concluded earlier this month, McLaren had quite a bit to show off. Among the fleet, there was something particularly intriguing. Something a little more jagged than the British automaker’s usual offerings. It was a full-size LEGO McLaren based on the all-new beastly 720S. Yes. It was a 1:1 LEGO replica of the 720S.
