Borho has added an ethereal spin to the badlands of SpaceX and the brutalism of his native Paris through his carefully lit photography.

Redlines seeks to understand the pedagogical and design frameworks that shape this process.</p> <p>In this session, we look at MONU Magazine. MONU is run by <a href="https://archinect.com/news/article/55264927/the-ideology-of-publication-conversation-with-bernd-upmeyer" target="_blank">Bernd Upmeyer</a>.

Callouts in architecture establish a closer look towards a part of a project that requires more explanation and emphasized attention due to its complexity, uniqueness or typicality. They create a different, more detailed view of what has already been seen, expanding the reader&rsquo;s understanding of the project.</p> <p>Following that tradition, &ldquo;Callouts&rdquo; is a series of carefully selected complex, unique and banal projects, that have the potential to initiate a discussion, be didactic and affect their contemporary contextual mythology. Reviews for projects that do not satisfy these criteria can be found by typing &ldquo;architecture&rdquo; on your search bar. </p> https://archinect.com/features/article/150097632/does-neil-denari-dream-of-electric-sheep-thoughts-and-tangents-with-neil-denari Does Neil Denari Dream of Electric Sheep?
