Stunning Images Of The Psychiatric Clinic In Greenland

Scandinavian architecture firm White Arkitekter has unveiled plans to build a pale yellow psychiatric clinic in Nuuk, Greenland, which will frame views of the surrounding arctic landscape.

It will be situated just a short distance from the capital’s centre, sat beside the main entrance of the existing Dronning Ingrid hospital. The 3,300-square-metre building will also overlook a Greenlandic fjord, providing views of the country’s icy waters and snowy cliff peaks.

The building strikes the perfect balance between a calm, healing and trustworthy atmosphere and the natural landscape and the existing hospital facilities. Echoing the materials and colours of Nuuk – where hospitals are traditionally yellow – the architecture cuts an instantly recognisable figure from both near and afar.

Daylight is abundant in all patient rooms thanks to the large windows and generous height of this part of the building.

Mad, Urban, Grunge And Sensual NSFW Photography By avid Kirscher

Meet David Kirscher, talented urban french photographer based in Paris and Madrid.

“My passion for photography started when I was 15. I bought for Christmas a camera for my girlfriend. It was a digital point&shoot camera with a 32Mo memory card that could take pictures and record videos (back in the early 2000s it was awesome). I was borrowing it all the time, so, when we broke up I decided to buy me one. I first recorded skateboard videos, school pranks, took pictures of my friends and made CDs compilations that I shared with them. Even if by the time it was just an everyday hobby, I actually feel like I never stopped doing it,” he said.
