BEVERLY GROVE (Curbed LA) — National Museum of African American History and Culture designer David Adjaye ’s first project in California will be at a surprising location: The Beverly Center.
Adjaye is designing an 11,000-square-foot store for The Webster , a “luxury multi-brand retailer,” that sells high-end apparel. Adjaye has designed a number of other stores across the globe, including two stunning spaces in historic buildings in New York for designer Proenza Schouler and a ground-up space for the Aishti Foundation, a collection of bars and in Beirut.
Adjaye’s addition—said to be pink and concrete—to the nearly 900,000-square-foot Beverly Center could draw attention to the indoor mall, which opened in 1982 and has struggled to stay relevant .
Last year, the hulking center completed a mullti-year, $500-million makeover […]
Space Force Reveals First Uniform and They Might Need a Redesign
(TMZ) — Well, President Trump ‘s new baby just crapped all over itself — because the U.S. Space Force’s first uniform is a big hit … with our enemies — in spaaaaace!!!
Space Force gave the world a sneak peek at some of its gear … showing off a glimpse of a camouflage jacket. It’s got “U.S. SPACE FORCE” on the chest … and a “SPACE COMMAND” badge on the arm, right under the U.S. Flag. Awesome.
Except … IT’S CAMO!!! The standard green, brown and black shades of camo are the LEAST camouflaged colors on a space ship or in space. Right?
That much was obvious to everyone on Twitter after Space Force posted the image. As some users pointed out … Space Force appears to be battle-ready, as long as we’re taking down the Ewoks on the forest planet of Endor from “Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.”
Space Force, which officially launched about a month ago, has only one member so far — Gen. John “Jay” Raymond, the Space Force Commander. Based on this first uniform, we should look into recruiting a fashion designer too.
As the Internet was quick to point out after the Space Force post … perhaps something in black would be better for flying under the radar in space. Or maybe gray to blend in with space ships. Then again … we don’t even know what those will look like.
Pentagon, we have a problem … lots to sort out.

Influencer Claims She is Being Evicted Because Lisa Frank Flat Copied Her Design
LOS ANGELES (Jezebel) — Last week, the Internet surfaced a cheaply constructed rainbow apartment-for-rent in Downtown Los Angeles: an ode to Trapper Keeper empress Lisa Frank, designed as an advertisement for Hotels.com. Naturally, its novelty made the SponCon go viral, and the space, available only for stays October 11-27, was booked out immediately.
But after being inundated with tagged posts, Instagram design influencer Amina Mucciolo noticed something strange about the promotion. Mucciolo is the brain behind her own rainbow explosion apartment, and many of the design elements in the Hotels.com space, she believes, mimic her own rental.
(It does not help that the spaces share a kindred layout.)
In a 27-minute long YouTube video, Mucciolo details the similarities between the two apartments, and chronicles a series of events that she believes has lead […]
