Take a look at this photo: What color are these shoes? I see teal and grey, and while many others do as well, apparently another chunk of the population sees these shoes as pink and white. Yep, it echoes that blue/black or white/gold dress photo that was making the rounds
Core77 isn't an architecture blog by nature, but certain structures do catch our eye. So is the case with LEGO house, a 21,500+ sq ft building inspired by—you guessed it—everything LEGO. The center resides in Billund, Denmark and was was designed in partnership by Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) and COWI.
Imagine if you could get through airport security without having to stop and wait at a counter or metal detector. Well, officials in Dubai reckon they've got a technological solution that would allow you to keep walking, as you're being scanned. According to The National, they've come up with a

In the tony Toronto suburb of Forest Hill, a couple whose last name starts with "C" have a handsome, multimillion-dollar home designed in the Tudor style. We tracked it down on Google Street View, and found much of the house obscured: About 800 meters away, on a different street, a

Saturday Night Live's sketches are often hilarious, and this one's got nothing to do with politics—but with graphic design. Here Ryan Gosling plays a tortured designer who cannot get over the fact that the logo for James Cameron's "Avatar" uses Papyrus as its font: Admit it, that was a lot
At a press conference in Australia today, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk announced his plans to focus the company on BFR. Endearingly, "BFR" is short for "Big Fucking Rocket," and developing it is vital to the company's goals of reaching both the moon and Mars. That aside, at the end of
Last Friday, September 22, UK Prime Minister Theresa May described the June 2016 "Brexit" referendum as an opportunity for “imaginative and creative” solutions for the European Union.
