Fergus Purcell aka Fergadelic is has been a very hard working man as of late. The artist known for his rock/street influenced style has recently been announced as Stussy’s latest ‘guest artist’ in a series that has seen contributions from other artists such as JJ Villard and Daniel Clowes. In the video above we get an insight into Fergadelic’s work ethic and the origins of his name. Below you can check out the tees.
The first single to come off their second album Thank You, Happy Birthday, depicts a man dreaming of a time full of blanket forts and cowboy hats. It’s never a good sign when your life passes before you eyes.
The brief for this house was quite simple: “I want a 9 car garage and be able to enjoy viewing one of them in the living room.” Takuya Tsuchida designed exactly such a house, it has an elevator for one car from the garage to the living room. I can totally understand the owner of a Lamborghini Countach Anniversary edition, to make such a request. I guess it’s no surprise that can find this house in Tokyo.
Here is some Interor Design inpiration, just love simple things like Black & White. Makes it easy to pop things out, like bright yellow for example. Adorable color.

This is a house to be built in Tokyo, for a movie producer couple.
This architecture is consisted by combining L-shaped blocks of reinforced concrete and sequential frames of box-shaped engineer-wood. We put bedrooms, film archive and galley in solid concrete part for security, and living room in engineer-wood part for openness. As material that consist an open space that is 6m in height, 5.5m in width, 14m in depth, we choose thin engineer-wood (38mmx287mm).
Main theme for this architecture is to bring out a sense of mass and material, which were denied by modern architecture which pursued “white, flat wall” as a style. We intentionally left the wood grain of mold on the surface of concrete, and choose textured stones and irons.
It goes without saying that a house is a relaxing place. A house like a white-cube, surrounded by flat, white walls everywhere, gives a person very abstract image. But that image could only be sensed when we use intellective part of our brain. The problem is that we’re not all-intellective-creature. For the people like this client, who do enough intellectual labor on a daily basis, white-cube would only bring sense of fatigue. The role of architecture, especially the ones for living, is to soothe the sensory side of people, not to stimulate the intellectual side.
