It’s a shame that this country is coming apart on us. It breaks my heart because it didn’t always look this way. I’m not alone. There are thousands, millions like me. I wish them well.

TRON: Architecture of Light
Director Joseph Kosinki is making his big-screen directorial debut with the upcoming TRON: Legacy movie after a well accomplished career as commercial director behind the “Starry Night” - Halo 3 and “Mad-World” - Gears of War commercials.  While creating the visual look for TRON Kosinski relied on his background architecture to create the scientific, geometrical and glossy world.

In architecture school, Joseph Kosinski had to post his work in class for professor critiques before returning to the drawing board to fix his mistakes. Years later, he used the same approach to codify the look of Disney’s Tron: Legacy

Inspired by real-world architects Kosinki looked to the clean and stark pioneers of modern architecture like Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Louis Kahn.  “This is a world that had to be designed from scratch,” says Kosinski. “I don’t know how you can direct a movie like this if you’re not interested in design and architecture. It became the guiding philosophy.”

A Final Flight for Enterprise

This morning, the space shuttle prototype Enterprise flew over NYC en route to her final resting place at the Intrepid Air & Space Museum on the Hudson River.

This wasn’t the first time Enterprise has flown over NYC. Up top, there she is in 1983 on the way back from the Paris Air Show. Below, today’s final flight over the Big Apple.
