Knuffingen Airport

Knuffingen Airport / Miniatur Wunderland, Hamburg, 2011

Well this has just blown my mind. This functioning model airport is the latest instalment at Miniatur Wunderland in Hamburg – the largest model railway exhibit in the world.

Watch here and be amazed.

And as if that wasn’t cool enough, they’ve only gone and got a space shuttle to land on the runway too.

Watch here.

Must. Visit. Soon.

Josef Schulz

Jozef Shulz photography

A truly stunning portfolio of photography by Josef Schulz. I’d seen his Sign Out project before but these shots totally blow it out of the water. I had a pretty hard time trying to select a few to post up here.

Seen on ISO50.

Anton Stankowski

Poster design / Anton Stankowski, 1957

Beautiful work by German designer Anton Stankowski. Born in 1906, Stankowski worked in Switzerland & Germany either side of WWII. He died in 1998, after receiving many honours for his remarkable body of work.

I’m surprised that his work is relatively unknown in the UK, considering the current renaissance of many of his colleagues such as Max Bill and Richard P Lohse. I’d never heard of him before. Thankfully there’s a good selection of his work to browse through here.

Another great discovery from ISO50.


VitraHaus / Herzog & de Meuron / Weil am Rhein, Germany

Must. Go. Here.
