I really enjoy seeing a nice set of 3D renders showing an amazing architecture project. Some designers are true masters of the art of building scenes like these below, some so perfect that one might mistake it by a photograph.
Michael Nowak, a German designer, has a sweet set of 3D renders of architecture scenes. This is only a handful of his pieces! For more of his amazing renders you may visit his portfolio at ArtStation! I hope you enjoy these as much as I did! Cheers. 😉
You probably know by now that caravans are one of my favourite things and with summer holidays and road trip wanderlust in the air, I’d like to present my latest find, the (fantastic) folding Mini-Motel caravan. Somewhat forgotten in automobile history, I came across it in this terribly English promotional feature from 1959 through the archive of British Pathé…
The Mini-Motel, boasting a set-up time of one minute, was priced at £268 (a little over £4,000 today) and was made in Emsworth, Hampshire by a company called Portaplas, founded by designers Brian James and Ron Nugent. The model was only briefly produced before they released a slightly larger model known as the Portafold,
This vintage promotional clip is an absolute hoot! (I don’t use that word very often but in this case, I think it’s appropriate).
“Even a moron, mechanically speaking, can fix it up in a matter of minutes,” the voice-over presenter eloquently notes. “Four retractable legs provide firm base for the caravan and prevent it from rolling inadvertently out to sea in the middle of the night.” Good to know.
Enjoy the film …

After much deliberation, worthy of a national beauty contest, and tabulation by an independent auditor, Quasi Modo, who looks like a hyena to some, was selected because he“epitomized excellence in ugliness” according to Chief Judge Brian Sobel. …The judges score the dogs on their first impression, unusual attributes, natural ugliness (cannot have been altered for purposes of the contest), personality and audience impression. A good many of the contestant dogs have been rescued from shelters and puppy mills and the Contest has done much to raise awareness for adoption of dogs and how no matter their physical detractions, these animals are loving companions.
