Food for thought‘[...] do not think that good design can make a poor product good, whether the product be a machine, a building, a promotional brochure or a business man. But [...] good design can materially help make a good product reach its full potential. In short, [...] good design is good business.’
Thomas J. Watson Jr., IBM CEO

USS CityMall

December 15, 2007, 3:06 AM

This bridge is placed just outside my window. I got to visit it for the first time today. Interesting. Feels like “beam me up, Scotty” :P

and this is from the night they put it together (can’t believe it was 3 months ago already, time surely flies, with warp ten sometimes :P).

And if you’re wondering why the pictures are all at night, it’s because designers are actually vampires, we only work at night (it’s a big conspiracy to hide the truth from all of you people and all the other bla bla) :P

Later edit:
City Mall has posted on their site some details about the project (link in romanian). According to their webpage, I’ll have just around the corner 4 banks (Raiffeisen, BCR, Emporiki and Piraeus) and two big retailers, Domo and Billa (plus one casino, in case I feel lucky :P). I’d be glad about them, but having a 11-floors-24/7-open parking lot nearby means less fresh air from the parks around :(

At least I’ll be able to see Bucharest from sky high :)

Little windows to the past

These nice courtains reminded me of my grandparents’ today.

An ogre must live here :)

December 2, 2007, 5:29 PM

Beautiful house with huge door, near Armeneasca Str, Bucharest (Toamnei str, if you look on yahoo maps). Irene came up with the ogre :). The image is made from 2 photos on top of each other, since my N73 wasn’t wide enough, with the help of some photomerging in PsCS3 (which still amazes me just how good it is).

"Late dinner"

While Kit was probably enjoying a late dinner, I was fascinated by the ceiling :) (around 4am).
