Olafur Eliasson’s “Your House”

Set up by Singaporean Alex Goh, DesignTAXI drives you to bright ideas from fields as various as Art, Photography, Advertising, Architecture, Style, Culture, Technology, and Social Media. There, you may get 8 tips on storytelling from the world’s top storytellers, or view famous logos re-imagined for a Communist regime by StockLogos. (My favorite is “Disney: Happy Endings for the 99%.) You will be inspired by the intricate work of Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson in cutting out a cross-section of his house from the pages of a book. Or tickled by the Japanese invention of “face bras” to fight smile lines.

SP recommends looking into a majestic wooden chapel in a forest.
