Maybe you’ve noticed that Happy Weekend has been inconspicuously missing since last December, or maybe you haven’t. To be completely honest it’s a time consuming post and didn’t seem to be garnering much interest, so I thought no one would notice if it just went away. But as in many things in life I was wrong, and its demise has been mentioned by several of you in the past few months (including my own father.)
So without further ado, here’s Happy Weekend in its latest incarnation! A slew of links from other sites that I share on Facebook throughout the week as well as a roundup of what you may have missed out on right here on Design Crush.
1/Bitchin’ Bugs, a groovy book about the insect world directed towards an adult audience. 2/Abandoned in Place is photographic exploration of forgotten relics of the American space race. 3/ReGen Villages is a self-sustaining utopian village in the Netherlands. 4/Your food is delivered on tiny rollercoasters at the aptly named Rollercoaster Restaurant. 5/Scientists have developed see-through wood. 6/Explore the forgotten spaces below highways and bridges in the Skies of Concrete series. 7/Mini golf gets a modern marble redesign. 8/Cinema Palettes generates the color palette used in iconic movie scenes. 9/Play Werewolf. 10/Instrument 1 aims to make playing music less intimidating.
