“This home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright represents the finest of contemporary architecture. Just as the Futuramic Oldsmobile represents the farthest advancement in automotive design.”

The MoMA Library’s current show, Frank Lloyd Wright: Publishing the Self, examines the architect’s career-long engagement with print media. As this example shows, Wright made little distinction between editorial content and advertising.

The show complements the major retrospective exhibition Frank Lloyd Wright at 150: Unpacking the Archive. -jt

Microsoft, West Coast Customs Create the Ultimate 400-hp ‘Device’

How do you remake an automotive icon? If you’re West Coast Customs, it starts with some oversized dubs and copious quantities of neon lighting. If you’re the Microsoft skunkworks development team, it means incorporating the company’s entire suite of mobile and gaming services into one of Motown’s greatest pony cars.

Here’s the video for the fastest production Ferrari ever — the F12 Berlinetta — straight from its launch today at the Geneva Motor Show. And like every Ferrari launch video, it’s absolutely epic.

The best thing about Ferrari is that they understand the importance of inclusion of the engine note. So that means we don’t just get a hard rock soundtrack, we also get a few moments to hear all 730 of those horses galloping simultaneously.
