1. Okuda San Miguels Rainbow Embassy

The Rainbow Embassy is artist Okuda San Miguel’s newest public art piece, converting a dilapidated Arkansas house into a bright plethora of geometry and colour. The space is now home to justkids, a global creative house and arts centre.

3. Neste Nolla Cabin

Envisioned by Robin Falk and developed by Neste, the Nolla Zero Cabin was designed to have as small an environmental impact as possible. Prototyped on an A-frame design, it was erected on Vallisaari Island in Finland. With eco-conscious living in mind, electricity is solar-generated and heating and cooking is done using fuel made from 100% waste. The cabin also emits 90% fewer greenhouse gases than fossil diesel.

4. Andrea Love’s Felt Animations

Washington-based independent animator and director Andrea Love specialises in stop motion animation, with much of her subject matter crafted from felt and yarn. Tiny textile stoves fry woolly eggs, all made by Andrea’s hands.
