British artist Mark Oliver has created a series of insects called “Litter Bugs” brought to life entirely from trash. Using eyeglass-arms for antennae and clock hands for legs, the species was developed in order to adapt to the harsh and changing urban landscape. The creatures are part of an invented genus, affectionately categorized in a document known as the “compendium of carabid and terrestrial detritus” – each one having been given their own title and scientific name, some based off the found objects they are built from.

Emma Architecten have completed a new visitors pavilion and cafe at Fort Diemerdam in Amsterdam. Paviljoen Puur is constructed over the plot of the old soldier’s shelter and the new plan was derived from the footprint of the original building. Architect Marten de Jong told Dezeen how the curves of the landscape inspired the undulating curves of the wooden walls, which angle in different directions so that in some places they face the ground and in others they point up towards the sky. Take a look!
