NEW MUSEUM SLIDE

New York’s New Museum recently added an exciting component to its exhibits. It’s a slide – a huge slide that runs from the 4th floor to the 2nd with enough twists and turns to spark anyone’s interest. It’s undeniable that slides are fun, and we have to admit, it feels like they plucked this one straight from our dreams. The Carsten Höller slide is open to the public with other interactive works until January 15, 2012. If you’re in New York City we recommend checking it out.

ICELAND INVITES YOU

While most tourism-boards attempt to craft clever promotions to lure travelers, there’s nothing like actual residents opening their doors and inviting you to experience their home in a unique way. It’s sincere and it’s welcoming. It makes you want to visit. That’s what Iceland is doing. Their Inspired by Iceland campaign brilliantly brings together local residents, the president and other government officials to send a simple message – “Come to our home and let us show you what Iceland has to offer.”

Last week, President Olafur Ragnar Grimsson kicked off the campaign by inviting tourists into his home for pancakes, whipped cream and rhubarb jam. He’s also encouraging citizens to join the movement and invite visitors for an experience unique to Iceland. As Frosti Jonsson who has agreed to open his home says, “We are very proud to be Icelandic and we are very happy to share our way of life and our country’s beauty to adventurers that choose to visit us. We want to make their experience as real as possible; we want them to ‘be Icelandic’ while they’re here.” This seems like an awesome way to experience Iceland.

Also, don’t forget to visit Inspired by Iceland to view Icelanders’ invitations to experience the country like a local.

FLIGHT SIMULATION

flight simulation siminn

Forget xboxes, playstations and wiis. When was the last time you saw a flight simulator look this good? Recently, the creative minds at Banozic Architecture completed work on Stuttgart’s SimmINN. It’s a full size replica of the Boeing 737 cockpit claiming to offer the truest simulation of what pilots experience when flying. But Banozic didn’t stop there. As they describe it, “Our aim was to complete this impressive illusion outside the cockpit by creating a dynamic and abstract scenery of an airport runway. The simulators with their adjacent walls are positioned into the spatial concept in order to complete the remaining aircraft-parts graphically.” Click Read More for a closer look.
