Bishop Edward King Chapel, Oxford, UK
Lightenings (VIII) - by Seamus Heaney
The annals say: when the monks of Clonmacnoise
Were all at prayers inside the oratory
A ship appeared above them in the air.
The anchor dragged along behind so deep
It hooked itself into the altar rails
And then, as the big hull rocked to a standstill,
A crewman shinned and grappled down the rope
And struggled to release it. But in vain.
‘This man can’t bear our life here and will drown,’
The abbot said, ‘unless we help him.’ So
They did, the freed ship sailed, and the man climbed back
Out of the marvellous as he had known it.
THE AXIS OF DICK
For Milan Design Week 2013, Kengo Kuma brought his trademark style of transparency and lightness to the city center. In “Naturescape for Urban Stories,” Kuma envisions a natural space set within the bustling metropolis of Milan. Suspended between sculpture and architecture, Kuma’s installation reinterprets the traditional Japanese garden as a series of sinuous, organic spaces comprised of pietra serena stone, bamboo, water and gravel.
