Male obsession number 11










The great thing about BG is how he has introduced his "life" into the social media. He share absolutey everything. As a model he shows to the world his "qualities" as a person his love for skating and the canabis. This is the life that many of the youth people from our society: sex, drugs and skate (in this case). But what we like about him is his physical qualities that him obviously knows and he is proud off. He plays with his bisexuality as he lives from the gay market, but still admits his interest in the opposite sex. Apart from his hotness I admire his hability of self-marketing.

Roberto Burle Marx

Safra Bank Roof Garden

Roberto Burle Marx (August 4, 1909, São Paulo – June 4, 1994, Rio de Janeiro) was a Brazilian landscape architect, whose designs of parks and gardens made him world famous. He is accredited with having introduced modernist landscape architecture to Brazil. He was known as a modern nature artist and a public urban space designer.

He spent a lot of time in the Brazilian forests where he was able to study and explore. This enabled him to add significantly to the botanical sciences, by discovering new rocks and plants for example. At least 30 plants bear his name. Marx was also involved in efforts to protect and conserve the rain forest from the destructive commercial activities of deforestation for bananas and other crops and clear cutting of timber.

Marx’s work “can be summarized in four general design concepts—the use of native tropical vegetation as a structural element of design, the rupture of symmetrical patterns in the conception of open spaces, the colorful treatment of pavements, and the use of free forms in water features”. This approach is exemplified by the Copacabana Beach promenade, where native sea breeze resistant trees and palms appear in groupings along Avenida Atlantica. These groupings punctuate Portugese stone mosaics which form a giant abstract painting where no section along the promenade is the same. This “painting” is viewed from the balconies of hotels, and offers an ever changing view for those driving along the beach. The mosaics continue the entire two and a half mile distance of the beach.

DTile












One simply designs a space, object or function in a 15 by 15 by 15 grid, and the DTILE system allows one to cover it with a blanket of tiles. 

The system enables the user and designer, whether being architect, stylist, contractor, investor, distributor or end users to design and build a unique, made to measure special tile environment.

For all sorts of functionalities, which are necessary to make a functional space, we simply design and produce functional tiles. This enables us to create grids that aren't disturbed by a sink or a sink stopper, a tap, a cutting board, a wall socket, or a drawer
