A beautiful blue meditative garden space has popped up in Rio de Janeiro. The Zen inspired design project is hoped to provide a tranquil and peaceful place among an otherwise bustling and busy city environment. The commissioning body, Oi Futuro (Hello Future), presented the landscaped architecture earlier this year. With shades of blue intended to match those of the surrounding sky natural landscape, a modern touch has been applied to the meaning of Zen. Structures and well spaced trees leave an open planned archaeology but with features to draw the eye. Daniel Arsham, the garden's creator, has sculpted and created many items over his career. Explore photographs of the garden on Fubiz, and visit Daniel's website to explore the jungle of artwork.
More city scenes are shown in a series of photographs by Clarissa Bonet, who snaps “psychological” scenes of Chicago city landscapes. Her work is rich in lines and perspective, and uses people as transitional moments within the more permanent structures. Her series “City Space” uses framing and shading to capture subtle drama and eternal presence at the same time.
Another way to capture the great city outdoors is to use the colours and shapes seen from further out. By taking the macrocosm of a scene from a distance, and finding a unique range of tones with the lighting and angle, we can capture something magical and enthralling. The collection of photographs by Charles Emerson shows just this, as vibrant colours and beautiful man-made designs are captured in fascinating ways.
