Let’s say you would live for 100 years, and you would start to use calendar from day one. In this case, you would use at least 100 normal calendars, maximum 44 Calendar Rolls, or, 1 New Calendar.
And that’s not the end of the story. After 100 years, you can surely pass your New Calendar to someone else who can surely pass the no-longer-yours New Calendar further down.Continue reading New Calendar
We rolled two years and three months into one roll. As you expected, it’s called Calendar roll.
We use minimum package to help you avoid thinking on “oh the package is so cute, what should I do with it? it’s a shame to throw away!”. No logos too — you know it’s from us.Continue reading Calendar Roll
People write plans on calendar. That’s why many calendars leave space for writing. But it’s boring. That’s why you only do it on the first 2-3 days every year:
1 January: Change myself this year
2 January: Must write down my plan everyday
A horror story: Imagine you are 100 years old and you take out 100(-6) different looking calendars and found the same thing written on the same place, while the rest were left empty.Continue reading Granted Calendar
Granted Calendar is not calendar. Calendar tells people today is Friday, April has 30 days and 5th is Saturday. Granted Calendar goes deeper, unveiling the underlying patterns of time that nobody has ever seen. These hidden messages could possibly assist you on study, career, thinking, relationship, and almost any human activity. In a word, smart people follow Granted Calendar.
Granted Calendar granted us to do trend-watching of any given week, month, and year. From January to May of 2017, we have tried to predict what would happen in each month by looking carefully at Granted Calendar. Continue reading Monthly Trend-watching by Granted Calendar
In limited time of site survey, architects collect information by observing, taking notes, sketching, photographing, taking video, talking to locals etc.. When they are back in office, they make sense out of them, giving birth to report, diagram and site model. By then, the whole team can get a good understanding of the site especially by look at the site model talking about the site, away from site.Continue reading Rooming a Space
Tao got an iPhone from his uncle ages ago. It ended the old and good days of using his b&w NOKIA. Tao had thought to get a cover, but the price made him hesitant.Continue reading Cover Me!
It was in third year of our undergraduate program, a new café opened near our dormitory. Soon, it became a gathering place of students. They came here for dating, chatting, reading, and making theme party occasionally. The owner, Zhang Fan, was also an university student, majoring in marketing.Continue reading Sticks
In response to the theme “re-appropriation” of MIAW 2010, we wanted to dig out some hidden values in the campus. In the building of architecture school, during breaks, people chat outside the classroom while lean against handrails, on which coffee cups or coke tins can always be found. People do it naturally. But the performance of handrail could be better. By just adding wooden boards, we found the potential of handrail lying in its width. Finally, it was proved to be highly welcomed.Continue reading Pausa Café
In considering easier and faster construction during emergency period, we tried to minimize an individual’s private space into two insulated boxes, one vertical and one horizontal — it is like something in between tent and sleeping bag. Boxes could be arranged in various combinations, hosting family in different sizes. Public spaces are naturally created.Continue reading Emergency Shelter
The second house we lived in Milan was a super tiny one, about just 20 m². Small as it was, everything had to go vertical: Washing machine on top of fridge; bed on top of a balcony in between bathroom and wardrobe, connected to the living room with a moveable wooden ladder; orange tile on top of bathroom, indicating you could sit there eating watermelon in summer; of course, you could lie or sit or put things on top of wardrobe too.
Although it was so small, it had almost everything to support our life: except fridge and washing machine we talked before, there are a tiny balcony, a ceiling fan, an oven, a shower room, a bidet, and so on. We loved it when we saw it the first time.Continue reading Lamp A
Our first home in Milan was the left one above, with a big door facing street directly. Functioning as both door and window, most of its surface was made of glass; concerning privacy, translucent glass was used.Continue reading Door Garden
