Beijing, China June/July 2008

Whew. Finally, I've finished going through my photos from two recent business trips to Beijing. We've just finished up working on a two and a half minute film for Johnson and Johnson for their Olympic Pavilion. There were a few days where there were either delays or where we were rendering which gave me a little bit of time to document some of greater Beijing. I was fortunate enough to visit such sites as the Olympic grounds (where I was working), the Forbidden City and nearby temples, a number of Hu Tong neighborhoods (the old areas with small alleyways that they are busy tearing down as fast as they can), the Great Wall, and the 798 Art district (which I highly recommend!!).
Click the link below to see a set of galleries of my photos. There are 11 sections that you can choose from.

Here's some shots I took of the Johnson & Johnson pavilion at the Olympics area in Beijing that I'm doing a project for. Thinc Design and Urban A&O are responsible for the design of the exhibits and building respectively.

Home Delivery Exhibit at MoMA

Checked out the Home Delivery exhibit at MoMA today. Make sure to check out the first part of the exhibit inside. Best in show award for the buildings outside goes to the Burst*008 building by Gauthier Architects. BTW, props to Henry Grosman, a friend, who I recently found out was the project lead. Here are a few pics:

David Byrne bldg, first impressions

Took my bike down today to see the David Byrne building...
It was definitely worth checking out. It was fun to give it a whirl, but I of course wanted to play it like drums, which is a little hard to do given that it has keys. Please come and see for yourself. It closes August 24. 2 South St, New York, NY (to the right of the Governor's Island Ferry)

I never wanted to do this...

...but what the hell. I hate blogs, but with today's ease of connectivity, I think this might be the easiest way to show people stuff without having to email people individually about it. Anyway, here goes nothin'.
