Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in Architecture on Friday 29 November 2013

As it turns out, there are a whole lot more replicas of the Eiffel Tower then I ever imagined. And none of those replicas are even in France. There are some in Texas,  Las Vegas, Tennessee, China, Romania, Greece, and even Mexico. None of them are as tall as the original, but they’re still pretty […]

By Annie Churdar in New Illustration on Friday 29 November 2013

Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in Architecture on Thursday 28 November 2013

Designed by Phillip K. Smith III, this cabin reflects its desert surrounding, creating a mirage effect. Smith’s Lucid Stead was created using an aging homestead and some cleverly placed mirrors.

Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in New Art on Tuesday 26 November 2013

These feel both playful, childish, and sexual all at once. My favorite photo has a sailboat bravely facing the vast expanse of human flesh. The contrasting scales of […]
