A New Broome

The building at 431 Broome Street, New York, has spent the last seven years undergoing a major facelift, but now the bandages are off and the 1825 Federal Revival style property looks even better than ever, newly branded as boutique hotel The Broome. SoHo entrepreneurs Vincent Boitier and brothers Jean Claude and Stephane Iacovelli are the driving forces pushing The Broome, sweeping out (and I quote) “bohemian graffiti vandals” from the premises’ loft space, continuing the area’s regeneration into a swankier neighbourhood.

Now free of riff-raff and smartly-appointed, the building’s 14 rooms over five floors are arranged around a central atrium. One of the most notable features of The Broome is the artwork from the owners’ private collections, by notable bohemian graffiti vandals of the past such as Basquiat and Haring. Oh the irony. Anyway, if interior design is your bag you may like to know that a lot of the particularly nice pieces are from Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams. Head up to the roof terrace to soak up the SoHo atmosphere, as the rooms are fitted with noise blocking glazing for a restful night’s sleep.

Digital artists and photographers Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg, arguably the masters of cinematic animated gifs, recently shared this wonderfully executed series of images featuring locations in their native New York as viewed Armani eyeglasses. Cleverly, as objects and people move across the lenses they suddenly snap into focus, revealing the finer details of Times Square, Central Park and Grand Central Station. You can read more about the series over on Ann Street Studio. (via Ignant)

Baby Grand

Aiming to marry the elegance of post-war Paris with the literary legacy of its Greenwich Village location, The Marlton is a small-scale hotel with big ambitions and plenty to suggest it will fulfil them. The first big thing in the hotel’s favour is the experience of owner Sean MacPherson has a strong record of accommodation in the city, including interests in The Bowery, Jane and Maritime Hotels, and who designed The Marlton from scratch. His own visits to Paris, as well as the aesthetics conjured by F Scott Fitzgerald in Tender is the Night, are cited as the major influences at this 107-room place – upmarket but downsized from the usual luxury city centre hotels.

The neighbourhood is another plus, just off Washington Square Park on West 8th Street – an area which is currently seeing a lot of investment, but which hasn’t yet inflated prices accordingly, and a room at The Marlton can be had from $275 . The property – formerly Marlton House – is one of those storied buildings that attracted artistic types and counter-culture figures from the outset. Built in 1900, controversial actress Lillian Gish, would-be Warhol assassin Valerie Solanas and Lenny Bruce all lived here, the latter while awaiting trial for obscenity, and Jack Kerouac wrote two of his novellas while in residence at The Marlton. Behaviour has probably improved a bit since then though.

An Eye for Architecture

French photographer François Halard has a famously keen eye for architecture, and through his work we can gain privileged access to some of the most important Modernist buildings that would normally be off limits to most people. New York gallery Demisch Danant is currently showing an extensive collection of Halard’s surprisingly emotive architectural images from the past 20 years of his career, which began with the magazine Decoration Internationale and progressed to publications such as Vogue and The New York Times Magazine.

Among the landmarks Halard reveals are the French Communist Party Headquarters by Oscar Niemeyer, with it’s incredible domed auditorium, Albert Frey’s Palm Springs home – which interacts with the surrounding desert intriguingly, mystically – and Casa Malaparte on the island of Capri, completed in 1937 by Adalberto Libera. The latter was shot on Polaroid, and over 40 such images are included in the collection, along with prints from archive negatives. Evocative, moving, these are some of the most powerful images of buildings you may ever see. François Halard: Architecture runs until 1 March.

Olympic events placed in New York for scale

Bryant park ski jump

The New York Times published a fun piece that places Winter Olympic events in the city. Events include the luge in Times Square, ski jump in Bryant Park, and speed skating down Broadway.

The Winter Olympics sometimes gets flack for being the thing in between the more popular Summer Olympics, but I think it has a lot to do with scale and perception of the events. People know how fast they run, but don't always get how steep the mountains are. I used to go downhill skiing, and from a distance the hills didn't look especially daunting, but when I stood at the top of the black diamond, it looked pretty scary.

The Sorellina Sisters

When two sisters quit their day jobs to start a jewellery company, run from their Williamsburg studio/apartments, everything says crafty hipster designs made from organic macaroni and ethical glue. In fact Nicole and Kim Carosella’s firm Sorellina is at the other end of the spectrum completely. High end, classically influenced and diamond studded, Sorellina jewellery (jewelry for our American cousins) is designed to make a bold statement, taking centre stage in an outfit and relegating the clothes to a supporting role.

We are fortunate to have been given a look around the sisters’ homes, separated by a couple of floors in the same New York building, and the rooms give a great insight into the influences that inform their designs; the blend of vintage and modern is one that is directly reflected in their jewellery. It’s been quite a meteoric rise for Nicole and Kim’s brand – Sorellina only started in 2011 but their work has been seen adorning the likes of Emma Roberts, Florence Welch and Demi Moore in the last 12 months. It already seems a far cry from the days when they melted down their mum’s 1980s jewellery to make their first collection, but the fondness for recycling remains strong. Much of the material in Sorellina pieces is recycled, and the stones were either mined pre-1940 or adhere to the strict monitoring standards of modern production. There is also a strong sense of the personal in Sorellina designs; a combination of the sisters’ familial relationship and the intimacy of their workspaces which translates into the intricate and exquisite pieces.

How Geographically Accurate Is Your City's Subway Map?

Unless you live in New York, the answer is probably: "not at all."

There's more going on in a subway map than just tracing lines through stops. The most important quality of a transit map is that it be easily legible, even when glanced across a crowded rush-hour car. Looking at it, you should be able to figure out how this network of colored lines and pips translates to the real city outside, but geographic fidelity is often a secondary consideration.

Li Hongbo’s Flexible Sculptures

Li Hongbos Flexible Sculptures 650x437 Li Hongbo’s Flexible Sculptures
I am sure that we have all seen an ancient Greek, Roman, etc. sculpture before, or at least a photograph of one. You know? These are those super realistic looking sculptures of people that artists would carve in the ancient times. These are the sculptures that usually depict either the full or half exposed human body, along with some beautifully draped clothing, as a means of admiring natural beauty.

Well, these pieces must have been hard enough during their time to create, but remaking them today without the human models? Wow! Chinese artist, Li Hongbo, manages to do this and so much more. His collection of sculptures, which is currently on display at the Klein Sun Gallery in New York, not only recreates these timeless sculptures, but also does it out of a completed unexpected material.
