CASA AVIV



Located in in Tulum, a town on the Caribbean coastline of Mexico, this magnificent residence sits discretely in the jungle, merging indoor and outdoor into one generous, peaceful space. Designed by Co-Lab, the house features warm grey polished cement walls that contrast beautifully with the lush green landscape. Composed of two parallel volumes that were shifted from each other to better protect several existing trees on site, the house accommodates 4 en-suite bedrooms, high ceilings, open kitchen dining and living areas, a private pool, and a 360-degree roof terrace. Charred cedar wood carpentry that was custom designed to fit the house and was fabricated by local artisans, complements the neutral palette.

髪の毛や皮膚細胞などのヒトの身体を構成している細胞は毎日新たに作られ、ある一定期間が経過して、古くなった物は皮膚の垢のように脱落していきます。そのため、通常の怪我の場合、創傷治癒過程を辿り、皮膚が再形成され、元の状態に戻りますが、
脳の神経細胞の場合は特殊であり、失われたら二度と再生しないといわれています。

This UFO Spaceship McDonald’s Used to Exist in Alconbury, England in the 1990s

For many kids, getting a McDonald’s on a long drive would be the ultimate treat. And if you grew up in or around Cambridgeshire in the 1990s, you’ll probably remember getting a Happy Meal at the spaceship McDonald’s just off the A1 at Alconbury, near Huntingdon.

h/t: vintag.es

Originally built in 1990 as a Megatron, the restaurant was going to be the first of many in the chain. But the plans never happened, and instead the building became a McDonald’s in 1993.


The UFO Maccies sadly closed in 2000 due to soaring maintenance costs. It then remained empty for a number of years before it was demolished in 2008.

Artist Who Turned To Painting After Finishing Her Studies In Radiation Chemistry

Today, Zoya Kriminskaya lives in a small town near Moscow and devotes most of her time to creativity. Zoya edits books and creates dreamy illustrations that she sells on microstock. The first time she picked up a colored pencil was 70 years ago. However, pursuing an artistic career is not something she considered at first. As a result, she received a degree in engineering physics and devoted her time to radiation chemistry research.

Zoya turned to art twenty years ago. She started painting with oils, pastels, and watercolors again and even participated in art exhibitions. So, we decided to share some of her works with you; they’re full of Kandinsky, Picasso, Claude Monet, and Sumi-e references!

Kriminskaya’s biography confirms that a scientific career does not prevent a real artist from developing their talents. Even as a student at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, Zoya created small watercolor landscapes.

“As soon as I learned to hold a pencil in my hand, my mother bought me a set of colored pencils and sketchbook, in which I drew beauties; many beauties with braids and bright ribbons in their hair. This was almost 70 years ago. Since then, I have been fond of visual arts, ” Zoya told Bored Panda.

Zoya Kriminskaya moved on from science in 1994. It was a sphere that required too much of her time and financial resources. She returned to conducting laboratory work in physical chemistry several times. However, this was when she also started considering visual arts.

“Since 2004, I’ve been an active member of my city’s art studios. For this reason, coming here and meeting the head of our studio was one of the most important moments in my life,” Kriminskaya added.

Kriminskaya is already retired, and painting for her is much more than just a hobby. Every day, she masters new art techniques, illustrates books written by her and other authors, and actively expands her portfolio at Depositphotos, while earning income from it.

Zoya admits that she is also interested in watching how audiences react to her work. “A lot of people download my illustration titled Performance of Chorus with an Orchestra, as well as an image in Sumi-e technique called Red Russian Dragon. There, the dragon has three heads instead of one, as is customary in the East.”

You can find intriguing references to Kandinsky, Picasso, and Claude Monet in Zoya’s works. And she has numerous personal stories that explain her unique attitude towards these great artists.

Here is one of them: “I love Claude Monet’s landscapes. They are full of summer air. So, in tough winter years, I would go to the museum, sit in front of his paintings, and look at it until it felt like summer.”

Zoya Kriminskayas work was highly influenced by the works of Kandinsky. She often references his compositions or color schemes.

Kriminskaya loves to re-imagine his works: “I consider Kandinsky a great colorist, but some of his works, although completely abstract, still contain elements of the external, illustrative world, and I try to show this by interpreting his work.”

Zoya’s illustrations can be inspired by a street scene, a beautiful view, or even a TV program.

She creates illustrations quickly. “Oftentimes, art that is done quickly and easily turns out better than art that is constantly re-worked and re-visited,” Kriminskaya admits. Sometimes, ideas on how to improve her work come with time: “There was one winter landscape that I had for a long time. One day, I suddenly grabbed my brushes and made two bushes disappeared from the foreground. The composition became much better.”

Zoya Kriminskaya’s story teaches us that painting is an excellent tool for reflection, as well as an activity that can bring pleasure, profit, new acquaintances, and hope for a better future. Therefore, don’t be afraid to turn to creativity if your profession no longer inspires you. Your experience can be the driving force for new ideas and masterpieces.

Lamborghini Athon, an Amazing But Forgotten Concept Car From 1980

At the 58th Turin Motor Show, held in April 1980, Bertone introduced a new concept car based on a Lamborghini chassis – a slightly unusual choice, given that Lamborghini was in dire financial straits at the time. The press release from the Turin coachbuilder made it clear that Bertone wanted to support the company. The name Athon, referring to the Egyptian cult of the sun, was appropriate as the car was a spider, completely devoid of a top and intended as a fair-weather car.

h/t: vintag.es

The Athon was the first Bertone concept car created under the direction of Frenchman Marc Deschamps, following the departure of Marcello Gandini at the end of 1979. Some observers had expected Bertone to embrace a different school of design, but under the guidance of Nuccio Bertone, Deschamps seemed to follow closely in the footsteps of his predecessor. The Athon was thus based on similar aesthetic codes to the Bertone concept cars shown since the 1970s, with tense surfaces and highly sculpted geometric volumes delineated by clear edges and cut-lines. Likewise, the Athon explored themes close to Bertone’s heart in the treatment of glass surfaces as integrated parts of the bodywork or as openings.

Mechanically, the car was based on the Silhouette, itself closely derived from the Urraco. The three-litre V-8 gave 260 bhp at 7,500 rpm fed by four Weber carburettors and was mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. The wheelbase was unchanged, but the overall length was under four metres due mainly to the short rear overhang. With no soundproofing, driving the Athon at any speed was a glorious aural experience, as noted by Italian magazine Quattroruote in its July 1980 test review. Without any serious modification to the mechanicals, the car was reported to retain all the positive attributes of the Silhouette in terms of road-holding and handling.

The Athon’s proportions were unusual for a spider, with a forward-set cabin and a long and relatively tall rear deck underlining the mid-engine configuration. The engine cover was treated as a separate item, painted semi-matte to subtly offset it from the rest of the bodywork. Designed in such a way as to intentionally blur the boundary between the body and the mechanicals it contained, it even incorporated “dummy” air-filter boxes on its top surface. In contrast, the smooth wraparound windscreen made use of state-of-the-art glass technology and was smoked to integrate even more with the warm gunmetal grey body color.

It was a highly graphic but also a highly sculpted car: whilst the overall shape might appear somewhat monolithic – a sure sign of Deschamps’s intention – surfaces were deeply recessed on the flanks. The interaction of volumes between doors and side sills is especially dramatic. Taillights were but thin grooves recessed in the rear corners, so as to interfere as little as possible with the solid appearance of the rear end. The two-piece alloy wheels were manufactured by Campagnolo and were close enough to production form that they would be adopted on the new Jalpa a year later.

Although built in a short time span, the Athon shows the same quality of construction inherent in all Bertone prototypes, with a surprising level of attention paid to the interior detailing, both ergonomically and aesthetically. The innovative digital instrument display was developed with the Italian supplier Veglia, while secondary controls normally found on stalks – such as the windscreen wipers and indicators – were instead grouped in a pod a hand-width from the left of the steering wheel. These details, as well as the single-spoke steering wheel itself, were good examples of Bertone seeking to push the envelope with regard to interior ergonomics.
