Works by Liz Brizzi

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 17, 2012
A native of France born of Italian parents, Liz Brizzi grew up in Los Angeles. Inspired by urban themes, she loves to portray the beauty she captures in the raw, desolate and industrial aspects of cities and their outskirts. Her unique mixed media technique begins with the manipulation of her original photography collaged onto acrylic painted wood panels, finally blended within layers of colorful acrylic washes.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 10, 2012
Robert Irwin, the highly influential California artist and pioneer of the west coast light and space movement of the 1960s, will be exhibiting at both of Pace's gallery spaces in New York until the 20th of this month.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 03, 2012
This strange building looking similar to something out of a Dr. Seuss novel is the result of covering the structure in huge blocks of polystyrene with resin and adding a heavy coat of white paint on top. Used as a contemporary arts space, the idea for the building was created by French artists, Christophe Berdaguer and Marie Péjus.

The World's Narrowest House

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 27, 2012
Not only is the narrowest house in the world a thought worth exploring, it is being constructed now in Warsaw, Poland, in between the passageway of two buildings. Narrow doesn't even cut it. The space is 47 inches wide. Break that down, readers, and that is a major 3 feet, 11 inches of space you have to work with. Does Ikea make things for you?

Troll Wall Visitor Center in Trollveggen, Norway

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 05, 2012
Norwegians just do it better? The Troll Wall is the tallest vertical rock face in Europe, about 3,600 ft from its base to the summit of its highest point. And now, thanks to the wonderful work of Reiulf Ramstad Architects, there is a fantastic visitor's center for which to visit before you base jump, or whatever you do at steep cliffs.

Public Toilets in New Zealand Resemble Sea Creatures

Street Art // Tuesday, August 14, 2012
In Wellington, New Zealand on the waterfront, architects from Studio Pacific have created public toilets resembling large headless sea creatures or maybe even dinosaurs. The “toilet sculptures” were designed to reflect the waterfront’s shipping history and to evoke “the crusty saltiness of the sea” in the harbor nearby. They have red steel armor plates and their long neck design created natural ventilation. An ambitious project considering each one of these structures contains only one bathroom.

The Xiying Rainbow Bridge, Taiwan

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 13, 2012
We have been playing close attention to bridge design these days, what with our local Bay Bridge nearing a major addition, and talks of its western span receiving a special anniversary LED project. So let's turn to the great look of the Xiying Rainbow Bridge in Penghu, Taiwan that reflects a rainbow lighting scheme at night.

Sustainable Pavilion Containing Corn

Street Art // Wednesday, August 08, 2012
This cleverly designed pavilion was created by St. Andre-Lang Architectes constructed of wood, corn, and fencing.  Located in the North-East of France, the circular design allows for views of the entire surrounding landscape. Dried corncobs line the interior wood structure and external mesh to form the walls and act as insulation and protection. Esthetically marvelous, we wonder is this structure will be a magnet for animals and rodents as the corn dries out?

The Snow House

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 03, 2012
Yes, please, we will live here. This is the Snow House, a place where showering might be a tad exposed, but the layout and architectural set-up is undeniable. The house was constructed by Milan based design firm, Santambrogio, and is built throughout with a blue hued glass. The book cases, bed, and most everything is constructed with that same blue hued glass. Again, where do you shower?
