Los Angeles just got a whole lot cooler thanks to architect David Adjaye’s recent project. Fashion retailer The Webster, well known for its Art Deco-style flagship store in South Beach, commissioned the British-Ghanian architect to design its new 11,000-square-foot space in LA. Forming the foundation of the Beverly Center, the design is nothing short of stunning.

The structure is comprised of bubble-gum pink concrete, which offers a compelling juxtaposition with the brutalist building it sits underneath.

Among the biggest e-commerce trends to hit the market in recent years are direct-to-consumer brands. If you’re not familiar with the term, a direct-to-consumer brand is just a fancy way of saying that the brand sells items without using a retailer, like a department store or boutique, as a middleman.

The advantage of this sales model for consumers like us is that it means products are typically cheaper without sacrificing quality. Retailers often mark up the items they sell to make a better profit, but because direct-to-consumer brands don’t use retailers, you can avoid those mark-ups and receive a better deal.

Prefabricated homes have long added affordability and convenience to the architectural landscape of the U.S., allowing residents to live virtually anywhere for a fraction of the price of a traditional house. In addition to being convenient and affordable, prefab homes also have the potential to be among the most environmentally-friendly on the market--just ask Mexico City-based firm STUDIOROCA. 

STUDIOROCA is taking prefab homes to new, more sustainable heights with its prefabricated housing system dubbed VMD (Vivienda Minima de Descanso). Developed by architects Rodrigo Alegre and Carlos Acosta, VMD homes are designed to have a small ecological footprint and far more customization options than typical prefab homes.

In addition to parties, desserts, and decorations, the holiday season also brings about a special treat for design enthusiasts each year: Pantone’s Color of the Year.
