1. Project of the Day—It’s rare that we come across a more pleasing phrase than “gentle demolition,” but that’s exactly what we saw when we looked at this project. It is a 139-year-old gold house (it’s actually gold) that has fallen into disrepair. It is a staple of the neighborhood, but is now at the point where it needs to be demolished. Instead of tearing it all down in a wild frenzy, the hope is that the house can be carefully dismantled, so the pieces can be used to create something new.

  2. Project of the Day—Los Angeles has a vibrant and fascinating contemporary art scene, and for awhile now East of Borneo has nurtured a ”collective reexamination of West Coast art and its history, highlighting unexpected connections and encouraging new lines of thought.” In short, it’s a great site, and it wants to be greater. They’ve also got books and posters and all sorts of great stuff in the pipeline.
