This months issue of Dwell is chock full of great things, so much so that we haven't got completely through our issue yet even though we've had it for a week + now. Seemingly tons of great photos and smaller blurbs to keep our spastic minds from wandering.
There are some heartier stories for those who like to read... you know, if you're into that sort of thing. A lovely article about Paula Hayes's garden sculptural planters and terrariums. Her oversized work looks like soft wax molded into these wonderful boot shaped containers. As well as, the story on photographer Thomas Wrede who uses his outdoor photography wall size to bring the outdoors in.
Some of our other favorite tidbits:
• A one pager on Three dimensional fonts and furniture by Andrew Byrom.
• A lovely home tour in Accra the capital of Ghana that incorporates a very neat green feature reusing old oil barrels to hold rain water for use in the garden.
• Outside, a photo essay on significant architectual outside gardens: includes the VDL research house by Richard Neutra in Los Angeles, Case Study House #21 by Koenig in in Los Angeles, and the Killingsworth in Long Beach to just name a few nods that Los Angeles received.
Dwell's August issue is on newsstands now.
