This is probably old news to everyone, but I just discovered Flipboard, and awesome use of space and a wonderful contribution to the public realm.

Designed and built by architect Martin Heide and interior designer Megg Evans of Brolly Studios, it is a wonderful project, redefining the public space around it.  The three niches which open out seem to both borrow space from the street, and to contribute a sense of protection and territory to pedestrians.  And it's made of plywood.  I love it.


  1. Will these spaces look grey and need re-treating in 2-5 years?

  2. Flipboard only launched its Android app recently. The app allows users to browse through their Facebook, Twitter and Google+ streams, as well as Google Reader feeds in a beautiful flipping manner. It also consolidates and curates a stream of important stories for those who are too busy to go through everything. As a blogger, using this app and browsing through interesting news content daily will give you fresh ideas on what to write about in your next blog post.
