Villa Vals

Architects CMA and SeARCH were focusing on the question if it would be possible to conceal a house in an Alpine slope while still exploiting the wonderful views and allowing light to enter the building when planing the Villa Vals. They decided to build a central patio into the steep incline to create a large facade with considerable potential for window openings. The viewing angle from the building is slightly inclined, giving a dramatic view of the beautiful mountains on the opposite side of the narrow valley.

It’s Steam Punk, Bitch. by Vadim Voitekhovitch


Cutlery set with coral, made in Italy in the late 16th century (source).

“This preciously decorated and extremely rare coral cutlery set from the late 1500s would have been only used on extraordinary occasions, such as a wedding, a knighting or a state visit. In the late Renaissance, the guests would typically bring their own cutlery to formal dinners. An expensively decorated cutlery set would have elicited the host’s and other guests’ admiration. Besides, coral was believed to be an antidote against poison. Therefore, in the view of its time this set of cutlery would have offered its bearer special protection during a meal at the table of a rival family or of an untrustworthy foreign ruler.” - from the MIA description

1. まずPCおよびモニターの電源を切ってください。
2. 次にモニターをひっかかないように、湿らせた布を用意。
3. そして当該箇所に布をあて圧力を加えます。この時、別の箇所にも圧力をかけるとさらに新しい死んだピクセルが出来るので注意!
4. 圧力を加えたまま、PCとモニターの電源をいれてください。
5. そこで圧力を取り除けば、死んだピクセルはなくなっているはず。
