A Colorful Makeover of Architecture Paul Eis

“A Colorful Makeover of Architecture” is a project where Paul Eis gives color and life to buildings he has photographed since 2015. Paul Eis is a young German, born in 1998, who studies architecture at the University of Arts and Industrial Design in Linz, Austria. He began this project coloring monotonous socialist housing estates of East Berlin, and now, in both his website and his Instagram account, we can find numerous colorized images of dull buildings located in the different places he has traveled to.Paul reflects on the monotony of our gray cities. Most of the buildings around us, whether historical or contemporary, are built in gray or white, and are cold and unwelcoming at first sight, so he sets out to give them new life and new allure.For the artist, the problem is not the whiteness itself, white being the color of many exemplary works of architecture, but rather the fact that in most of today’s ‘standard’ cases, color is not even considered an option. The point of this series of images is not to urge architects to build in bright colors, but to spark reflection on the huge difference that a

Variations of Time

Variations of Time Nendo

Nendo presents the series Variations of Time, a collection of four hourglasses that not only show the passage of time, but also design time itself. These designs play with minutes, deviating the sand through the action of gravity and the different diameters of the conduits. The changes of direction and the shapes of the cavities alter the speed of the fall of the sand, and thus the observer’s perception of the flow of time. The sand of the Variations of Time series is the same as the sand that flows through the original hourglasses. Nevertheless, the organic cavities and alternative routes that Nendo proposes convey a sense of freedom far removed from the unquestionable itinerary that the sand of old hourglasses had to follow. These cavities have been polished manually with a tool consisting of needles and abrasive materials, resulting in something much resembling natural formations. –In time divided, “Five minutes” worth of sand split into two cavities; “three minutes” worth of sand accumulates the left chamber, when filling this chamber completely,
