Ocean swimming pool in Saint-Malo France. I love how at high tide the pool slips back to ocean, leaving only the diving platform poking above the water, like some concrete sea monster. There is great flickr group with many more beautiful pictures of the pool.

Our current collection features a set of maps created by John Hutchison exploring his relationship to the 50 states in the US. The collection starts with a map representing all of the US states. Each successive map in the collection reveals a different set of states based on increasingly limiting criteria until we are left with only 1 state (his least favorite).

Jeff Maki has posted a field guide to NYC standpipes. These systems act like a fire hydrant to an individual building and there color coding and associated signage tell us city dwellers a bit about the fire protection in the building and perhaps more.
Six things that illustrate the past fifty years in design. British Airways flight attendents, Corn Flakes boxes, telephones, the Queens hat, police cars and covers from George Orwell’s 1984.

VisualJournalism has a good collection of info-graphics that attempt to explain the mystery that is the crash of AF447 in the Atlantic off the coast of Brazil. With so few details it is interesting to see the stylistic differences in these graphics that all tell, roughly, the same story – a plane flying from Rio de Janiero to Paris encounters a zone of bad weather and is never heard from again.
The grind of New York City as gotten to you. You and your buddies have decided to play hooky in the park. Once you get there you realize nobody has brought any supplies. You need the essentials to enjoy the day. Remember this is New York so your team is not the only one looking for a fun day, of course you have to beat out teams for your items. Each team will have to complete missions in the park, and solve HUGE tangrams to create their ideal Day in the Park .
Part of the Come out and Play festival, city-size fun.
