The Extension

Alexandre Desplat

Posted in Music by ologundudu on October 6, 2010

One of my favorite movies in a long time. This came out back in 2007. Dark and moody, lots of mystery, and espionage, but the best part of this entire movie was by far the score. Alexandre Desplat is a very famous composer who has worked on movies including, The Painted Veil and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, which was a dope movie if you ask me. Check out this soundtrack, beautiful music for a rainy sunday.

Small Scale, Big Change: New Architectures of Social Engagement

Red Location Museum in South Africa

Luckily there is still work being done that if not actually changes things in the world for the better, it aims to. With that said I’m very excited to see this exhibition at the MoMA, featuring the work of architects around the world that are designing with more than just a structure in mind. From a museum in South Africa, to a metro cable in Venezuela that connects a city, to housing for fisherman in Lebanon, to a hand-made elementary school in Bangladesh. In my estimation it is important that work which is socially and humanely conscious exists and thrives.
