table-3

(via) Vancouver has plenty of “public” art, but not nearly enough of it is employable by said public. That’s why we dig this vertically looped picnic table designed by Michael Beitz, which currently sits atop the roof of the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art in Wisconsin. They’d fit well in most public spaces, but for starters we think they’d gel especially well in False Creek’s Olympic Village.

Vancouver Would Be Cooler If Each Neighbourhood Had Its Own Manhole Art

There are over 19,000 different manhole cover designs in Japan. They even make manhole trading cards!
