Curbed National: Dads, Dystopias, and Pop-up Parks

Let us now take a very visual look at the latest architecture and design news as revealed on our West Coast outposts, Curbed LA and Curbed NY, this week.

1) NY: A Condo development makes itself known in Brooklyn. The Viridian—named no doubt for the color of its glass—is perhaps better known as the Magic Johnson project, after one of its more celebrated investors. Unusual perks include "virtual golf," a rooftop putting green, and a billiard room, thus limit the possible clientele to dads and CEO's. [Curbed]
2) L.A.: Sci-fi films so often prove prophetic. Case in point: Bladerunner advertisements are coming to town. Now all that's left to do is sit and wait for dystopia to become reality. [Curbed LA]
3) NY: First comes the art, then comes in the park. New York's "pop-up" park is intended as a temporary viewing area for the forthcoming installation of Olafur Eliasson's artificial waterfall under the Brooklyn Bridge. Unfortunately they bear little resemblance to our beloved childhood books. [Curbed]
