Artist Matthew Ritchie
It's not just about architecture here in Venice. Matthew Ritchie is an artist who recreates the universe as art with paper, lights and installation. For the Biennale he has collaborated with Aranda/Lasch and Daniel Bosia/Arup AGU to create a huge installation made up of fractals and site specific designs.
Listen to our interview as he talks about the art and architecture relationship.
More than 9,000 kilometres over perilously soft sand dunes, through fields of treacherous boulders, across the gargantuan heights of the Andes, and through the relentless desert heat of one of the driest regions on earth: anyone with victory in mind must be prepared to suffer. That much is certain, as MINI looks to successfully defend its title at the 2015 Rally Dakar.
He did it! After completing a 9,000+-kilometre loop through South America, Nasser Al-Attiyah won the Rally Dakar 2015 in the MINI ALL4 Racing. It is the fourth time in a row that MINI has won the world's toughest rally.
The new exhibition at BMW Museum shows 30 fascinating original vehicles and many exciting background stories about MINI. Take a tour with Andreas Braun, who curated this treasure trove of MINI moments.
MINI has competed in the gruelling Dakar Rally since 2011, winning 3 of the 4 it's entered. Recap one of the greatest winning streaks for MINI since its legendary days of the 1960s here.
The competitors at the 2015 Rally Dakar now have half of the roughly 9,000 kilometres through the heart of South America behind them. Their reward is a rest day. However, it would be wrong to believe they can put their feet up for a day. There is no time for that sort of thing on the toughest rally in the world.
Stay toasty through the shortest days of the year with these wintry tracks that beat the dreariness out of the greyest afternoon.
