As a student of interior design and decoration I know the inspirations, updates and news are coming from different directions and places even when I´m not searching for them. They just pop up and call “Hey you! I´m something for you!” I will leave aside all my beloved blogs on interior design, architects´s websites and I will stick to UK magazines this time. I add links the magazines however all of them can be purchased as printed versions. The market offer is wider but I mention only those I found useful for myself.

University of Technology in Sydney (UTS) is another outstanding project in Gehry´s creative career. The building will have 11 floors and its look is going to be dominated by “folded” look from one side and glass panels on the other one. The building process will begin in 2012 and should be completed in 2014.
I had a fantastic opportunity to watch The Garbage Warrior movie about work of architect Michael Reynolds and his fight with laws and other made-by-human-civilization obstacles to introduce and promote his idea of sustainable living, made-from-garbage houses and technique of producing them. I´m a huge fan of his projects and I found it extremely inspiring to watch the developement of his ideas and his not-giving-up attitude.
Just imagine having a beautiful house made within two weeks and no need to pay utility bills any more. I really appreciate Michael´s amazing commitment to current architecture.
