Website updated! ? We’ve done a lot: We’ve changed the address from claudeverett.org/blog to claudeverett.org itself. We’ve (crazily) refined and updated almost all the pictures, so they are in better quality but smaller size. We’ve added something and eliminated something. We’ve messed around with a lot of CSS to improve the look… etc. Hope you like it : )

Vox Gigs Cover (Dec 2017)

Posted on Categories selected works, graphicTags , , , , ,

There are two things attracted us immediately when we received the mail post from coco.

One was the seal ‘航空 PAR AVION’, it’s so good looking. We’ve only seen the blue sticker with ‘AIR MAIL’. It’s just not comparable with the red seal on the kraft paper. Chinese with French in great typeface, super. Just beautiful.

We Were Wrong about The Correct Side of Pillow Case and Bed Sheet

Posted on Categories think twice, selected worksTags , , ,

It is not rare to see someone wearing t-shirt outside in, like the one below. He just discovered the mistake, feeling a bit embarrassed mentally and uncomfortable physically. Common sense strongly suggests us the correct way of wearing/producing clothes is decoration outside, if there is decoration. We need decoration to satisfy people’s eyes. The inner side that closely touches our body ensures our maximum comfort. It has to be soft, pure, and natural. In conclusion, when we wear correctly, we feel being ‘covered’, we feel warm, safe, comfortable, and confident.

Arch within Arch (GB1610384.8) (2013-16): A telescopic structure (1a, 1b and 1c) operates on a sliding mechanism (2) and moves to expose the overlaying arch viaduct (3) and permit periodic servicing – addressing a legal requirement that restricts ixtures within the arch. The structure is mobile and formed of sandwiching construction for acoustic and thermal insulation (4). This structure is isolated on vibration pads (5) and loats off the ground to absorb the vibration from passing trains. A solar reflective foil (6) works with sun paths to collect, reflect and amplify daylight and naturally illuminate the dark interior spaces. © Undercurrent Architects

Orange’s mushroom (Amanita citrus sinensis)

Amanita citrus sinensis, commonly known in english as orange’s mushroom. It might remind you its lovely tasted, posh but a little bit tricky cousin Amanita caesarea, commonly known in english as Caesar’s mushroom. If you happen to know Chinese, you may find that orange’s mushroom and Caesar’s mushroom unreasonably share the same name in Chinese. Nothing can be more confusing than that. Despite name and appearance, they have nothing in common.

Glass for A Blind Child

Posted on Categories architecture, selected worksTags , ,

This is the last competition we participated and lost in 2015. The competition has been sponsored by a glass company for the past decades, many topics therefore were closely connected with glass. This year is the 50 year anniversary, they made a anniversary-feeling topic — “the glass”, asking participants rethink the role of glass in architecture.
