I love this anonymous quote: “Good friends are like stars, we don’t always see them, but we know they are always there.” ✨
Comet ISON which will be seen today across the skies can be, according to the most optimistic prediction, the comet of the century, and it could rival the Great Comet of 1680, seen here in this painting by Lieve Verschuier. The Great Comet of 1680 over Rotterdam, 1680. 💫
Architecture Alive: The Copan Building, located in the center of the city of São Paulo in Brasil, and designed by the legendary Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer, is a world architecture icon, and a portrait of Brazilian society. More than 5,000 residents, of all social, cultural, ethnic and economic levels live in its 1,160 apartments.
In this visual anthropological investigation, 20 Copan characters (residents, workers and business owners) create a fluid, vibrant and positive dialogue on how it is to live and work in harmony and safety in the largest residential building in Latin America.
