Posted in design, illustration, photography by aldorf on April 27, 2011

Infographics in 2-D are great, but real life, 3-D infographics are even more mesmerizing and interesting. Jose Duarte, a graphic designer, has been using found physical objects to present his data findings. For example, the balloons you see above represent the amount of Internet users there are in (from left to right) China, Europe, India, Brazil, Mexico, and Portugal. (via Holy Kaw!)

BusStopSymbiosis in Porto, Portugal

Posted in architecture by aldorf on August 29, 2010

LIKEarchitects‘ BusStopSymbiosis is one of the five artistic interventions selected by Scott Burnham to emerge in downtown Porto, Portugal as part of Bairro Criativo. Artists were asked to imaging temporary structures for the public space aiming to improve people’s daily life in the city.

“The main criteria were that the proposed ideas had to be simple, quick, and go in and come out with only a light touch on the city – nothing destroyed before they are installed, and no damage when they leave.” Scott Burnham
