7 Things You Missed on Social Media Last Week

Welcome to Curbed's new weekly round-up of architecture and design on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and (god forbid) even LinkedIn. Collected from retweets, intra-office chats, and, well, anything that sent us into a 140-character tizzy, this is what Curbed editors saw on social last week. Please be in touch if you have a recommendation for next week.

1.


Our editors were on the scene at this weekend's Open House New York events, which included a tour of Eero Saarinen's stellar TWA Flight Center at John F. Kennedy International Airport. This was the public's last chance to see the terminal, which opened in 1962, before it becomes the TWA Flight Center Hotel. Check out our Instagram account and the hashtag#ohnywknd for more snaps from Open House New York.

New York magazine architecture and classical music Justin Davidson had this to say about the city's Museum of Modern Art and a fellow tweeter responded with a picture of Marcel Duchamp's famous "Fountain" urinal sculpture. We'll just leave it at that.

Artist and illustrator Lisa Congdon has been in Portugal, for the last bit and her snaps of winding medieval streets and contemporary architecture—like Rem Koolhaas's Casa da Música—are great. Check 'em out!

Speaking of travel: It sure seems like a lot of people are in Tokyo these days. New York Times architecture critic Michael Kimmelman hit up quite a few of the city's contemporary architectural treasures last week. Head on over to his account for the full tweetstorm.

One of our favorite Instagrammers, Nigerian-born, New York-based Ike Edeani, posted this haunting shot of the inside of NYC home goods shop Coming Soon. We dig it.

No-introduction-needed Solange Knowles posted this mesmerizing short video of friend Melina Matsoukas ascending an escalator in Diller Scofidio + Renfro's new Broad Museum.

"Just the idea that People Magazine once had an opinion on an essay/rant against the origins and state of modern architecture." 'Nough said.
