This is totally cool. I'm going to have to spend some time looking at each of these.

I think my favorite is the chairs, though. I do love art that is functional...

The "pavilion in Berlin" is not in Berlin.

It is a instalation of Belgian artist/designer Arne Quinze's "Cityscape" . The enormous wooden sculpture was 131-feet long, 82-feet wide and 39-feet high and stood for year (2008) in Brussels' luxury district.

The aritst built a similar structure 2 years ago at the Burning Man Festival in Nevada. At the end of the festival the structure was set on fire.

A request as a riff on this...maybe a future piece on the history of birdhouses, birdbaths, and bird feeders in the garden? I have just started adding some of these to my own garden, and would love to know some of the background history.

Many of the pieces I have added are pique assiette, which I guess leads to yet another request for a future post...mosaic in the garden.
