Sushi Dai

Sushi Dai

I've been to Tokyo 11 times in the past decade, and, being a sushi lover, I always make it a point to stop by Tsukiji at least once per trip (sometimes multiple times!). However, I've never been to what is widely heralded as the best stall in the famed mecca of sushi. There's always an insane line (longest in Tsukiji) and I would invariably decide against using up my precious time in Tokyo waiting in a crazy line.

On this my twelfth trip to Tokyo, I finally made up my mind to pay Sushi Dai a visit, long wait and all. It's long overdue.

Gorgeous CG Short Film Featuring Architecture

Stunning computer rendered short film that "tries to illustrate architecture art across a photographic point of view." Buildings by Kahn, Mies, Gehry, Calatrava and others are breathtakingly rendered. I particularly loved the depiction of the Barcelona Pavilion in the film.

If you love architecture, set aside 12 minutes and watch this in HD in full screen (you have to click on the link to go to Vimeo in order to watch this in HD).

Curtain Door, Surat, India

Curtain Door, Surat, India

The door is comprised of 40 sections of 254mm-thick Burma teak and integrates 160 pulleys, 80 ball bearings, a wire-rope and a counter weight. I need to see a video of this incredible door in action.

Texas Living Pods

Texas Bungalow

Found this photo attached to a NYTimes article about how the U.S. can't track whether foreign visitors have left the country.

It appears to be a spherical tent attached to a one-car shed. It's identified as a "bungalow" in the article. I find it fascinating, but a cursory Google search has not turned up any info. Eyeballing the photo, the unit can't be bigger than 150 sq-ft (probably closer to 125). There's a certain dystopian futuristic look to these pods. I wonder how much the rent is for one of these things. Also, is it unbearably hot in the Texas sun? A/C? Shower and toilet? Who can tell me about these things?
