If you’re fond of architecture then Tokyo is a must see. Great architecture is so inspireing to me and it always inspires me whether it’s to fold a brochure differently or to choose a material. In Tokyo you will find so many great buildings, a lot of them heavily inspired by origami. Just check out the Audi bulding on Meiji-dori, a street running through the shopping area in Harajuku, or the Bvulgari building (one of my personal faves) on Omotesando. The Japanese appreciation of shape and simplicity definitely comes through and I love how it is not only huge buildings but also smaller recidential houses that are original. Check out this great selection.

I’ve featured Bleed before but I really think you should go visit one of the websites they’ve made. The site in question is for Snøhetta, a Norwegian architecture studio based in Oslo. This site is great, their projects really come to life with the huge photos and the motion on the site is smoothe and simple. The typography is crisp and clean and very well executed. Even if I don’t know much about architecture I am so inspired by viewing Snøhetta’s projects like this. Thumbs up to Bleed from here!
