I was super stoked about the technology + fashion themed Met Gala. The official theme of the night was “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology,” which celebrates a new exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art that examines how man and machine work together to create clothing. What 3D printed gown would someone wear?

Dezeen on Architect, Zaha Hadid, Passing Away [Reblog]

[Apocalypse scenario #117: The Death of an Idol] Zaha Hadid passed away from a heart attack today. If you don't know who she is, it's cool. Dozen wrote a brief on her. To me she was a legend, a transformative force in the male-dominated field of architecture, and a lover of futuristic alien space ship buildings and shoes, which makes her pretty amazing in my book. It's a sad day for architecture. Read the Dezeen Article here.
