Come back to Making Game of Thrones for a recap of the action and in the meantime, get to know the artists and their work below.

POP CHART LAB MEMORIALIZES THE RED WEDDING

Infographic experts Pop Chart Lab will interpret the notorious Red Wedding massacre into an illuminated manuscript engraved on a 12-foot piece of red glass. Beautifully detailed symbols will chart the events, conflicts, characters and families forever changed by Walder Frey’s betrayal.

MGM National Harbor – Video / Renderings

MGM Casino National Harbor

This is a beautiful project, well conceptualized for the topography of the site and location. The view of the structure from I-95 will be powerful and dramatic. What a great architectural addition to Prince Georges County!

 

MGM National Harbor offers a sophisticated architectural approach that addresses the local area’s significant geographical and cultural history. The design is influenced by the natural topography of the dynamic Maryland site, the iconic nature of nearby national monuments, and their interactions with residents and visitors in this vibrant travel corridor. The piercing verticality of the streamlined high-rise hotel rises from a resort pedestal and is precisely positioned to maximize sightlines to Washington, D.C. and the Maryland countryside.

Lighting a dragon: a bridge to prosperity!

A big hand has to go out to  Philips! The port of Da Nang has grown in prosperity since Philips LEDs began lighting up the Dragon Bridge. See how the lives of fisherman Le Van Khe and his daughter Le Thi Vinh are improving.

A beautiful and exciting design for a destination in an urban city. The design and installation attracts both tourist and locals alike, as well as, boosting the local economy and influencing unique entrepreneur opportunities. An amazing an wonderful story. Hopefully, the proposed 11th Street Bridge Park project can be as dynamic and rewarding for the local community in Washington, DC.!
