Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Italian Police Car

If you ever thought about running from the 5-O then Lamborghini might make you think twice. The legendary Italian sports car-maker delivered a special 560hp 5.2-liter V10 Gallardo recently to the Italian State Police. Adding to the sweet paint job is a fully decked out interior with everything from a GPS to real time wireless video recorder and even a compartment used to transport separated body parts to the E.R. Better hope these don’t hit the states. Video and images of the beast after the jump!

Arch Daily Klein Bottle house / McBride Charles Ryan

Architect: McBride Charles Ryan - Rob McBride & Debbie-Lyn Ryan
Location: Mornington Peninsula, Australia
Project Team: Drew Williamson, Fang Cheah
Clients / Builders: Donna & Mark
Constructed Area: 258 sqm
Photographs: McBride Charles Ryan

The Klein bottle is a descriptive model of a surface developed by topological mathematicians. Klein bottle, mobius strips, boy surfaces, unique surfaces that while they may be distorted remain topologically the same. I.e. a donut will remain topologically a donut if you twist and distort it, it will only change topologically if it is cut.

The surfaces that mathematicians have developed hold intrigue for architects as they hold a promise of new spatial relationships and configurations. Technology (CAD) has played an important part in all this, it is now more possible to efficiently describe more complex shapes and spaces and communicate these to the build. Previously the more orthogonal means of communication - plans, sections and elevations naturally encourage buildings which are more easily described in these terms, i.e. boxes.

This holiday house is situated on the Mornington Peninsula 1.5 hrs drive from Melbourne. It is located within the tee-tree on the sand dunes, a short distance from the wild 16 beach. From theoutset MCR wanted a building that nestled within the tree line. That talked about journey and the playfulness of holiday time. What began as a spiral or shell like building developed into a more complex spiral, the Klein bottle. MCR were keen to be topologically true to the Klein bottle but it had to function as a home. We thought an origami version of the bottle would be achievable and hold some ironic fascination. (The resulting FC version also has a comforting relationship to the tradition of the Aussie cement sheet beach house).

The building (we think) is also within that tradition of the use of an experimental geometry that could be adapted to more suitably meet contemporary needs, and desires. In that sense it is within the heroic tradition of invigorating the very nature of the home, most notable of this tradition would be the great experimental heroic houses by Melbourne architects in the 50’s (McIntyre and Boyd in particular).

The house revolves around a central courtyard, a grand regal stair connecting all the levels. There is a sense of both being near and far to all occupants.

Its endless, curling shell-like quality particularly in the tee tree brings about a comforting togetherness.

Original Fake Down Coat

Original Fake hands down does one of the best jobs with coats. The technical features put the jackets on par with the best outdoors brands, while the trademark zipper treatment gives it an unprecedented amount of honest style (in both red or blue, customer choice). The down coat has the added benefit of GORE WINDSTOPPER, keeping the wind at bay and ensuring the down insulation doesn’t falter under harsher conditions.
