Must-Visit Genocide Memorial, Soon to Rise in Cambodia

Include this in your bucket list of places to see and visit: the Sleuk Rith Institute, which is slated to be built in 2015, features beautiful architecture designed by Prtizker-winning architect Zaha Hadid, and is envisioned to help the nation cope with its traumatic history. The genocide memorial, which moves away from the typical somber design of other memorials like it from other parts of the world, aims to help Cambodians move on from the trauma inflicted on the nation by the fallen Khmer Rouge some 35 years ago. Hadid says in an interview with CNN Style, “The building design seeks to commemorate the past with moments of somberness, reflection, and tranquillity, but it was extremely important that the institute evoke hope and optimism for the future, and the design includes moments of warmth, light, and inspiration.” Check out more information about the memorial from Zaha Hadid’s website here.

New Furniture and Tableware Collection Influenced by Islamic Patterns Launched

British designer Bethan Gray worked together with Islamic art and craft revivalist Mitchell Abdul Karim Crites to design a line of furniture and tableware for their new company called The Ruby Tree, which aims to support artisans who handcrafted the designs included in their initial collections—the Stripe collection and the Petal collection. The Stripes are made up of seven pieces of tableware like coasters and incense holders that incorporate radiating stripes patterned after those used on 11th century ceramic vessels commissioned by Islamic royal courts throughout the medieval ages. The Petal collection is more extensive, with 18 pieces including furniture and tableware featuring a radiating geometric petal pattern that reference the dome of the 17th-century Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque in Isfahan, Iran, which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Monument. Learn more about the collections here.

Muralist in Rome Turns 48 Windows Into Faces

If windows are said to be the eyes of the home, then it makes sense to show the beauty of the entire face, right? An Italian street artist called Blu worked on a giant mural that wrapped around two sides of a building in Rome. With nearly 50 windows on the building's façade, Blu incorporated the windows into his design by drawing faces with the windows as each face’s eyes. Want to see it as it exactly looks on the street? Go to Google Street Maps and view Blu’s impressive mural exactly as if you were there in Rome yourself!
