Parking Vulturism 4.0

San Francisco just rolled out its SFPark system in eight pilot neighborhoods. SFPark uses sensors in parking spots to detect when they’re occupied. Using the SFPark website or iPhone app, citizens can see exactly where the free spaces are, as well as their exact price. Then, beginning this summer, the city will actually start changing the price of parking spaces based on demand. Rates will change as often as once a month, dropping to as little as $.25 per hour in places where demand is low and rising to as much as $6.00 per hour on the most congested city blocks.

Sculpted Words

Every year CPNB (Col­lec­tive­ Pro­mo­tion Dutch Lit­er­a­ture) organ­izes Dutch Book Week with the aim of pro­moting Dutch ­lit­er­a­ture, and every year a spe­cific genre is pro­filed. This year: Autobiography. The official theme is ‘Geschreven­Portret­ten’, or in other words, ‘Writ­ten Por­traits’.

Ad agency Van Wanten Etcetera commissioned Souverein to fashion a number of sculptural book ‘portraits’ which bare the likeness of each of the esteemed autobiographers. Included among them are Anne Frank, Vincent Van Gogh, Louis Van Gall and Kader Abdolah.

From Big Houses, Little Ones

Naruse-Inokuma Architects have come up with something that’s not only eco-friendly, but innovative and functional as well. These house-shaped sticky tabs – or IE-TAGs (“ie” is Japanese for “house”) – originate from wood debris from actual houses.
