Animated GIF Wall and Building Art by INSA
INSA creates awesome street art GIFs that bring the thrill of the streets to your very own Tumblr. Painting a wall several times and snapping photos of each shot, the artist then combines the photos to give the neon-spray paint an additional bling-bling.
mcdonald’s + fuel station, batumi, georgia by giorgi khmaladze
in a rapidly developing city along the black sea, local architect giorgi khmaladze has designed a glazed, faceted form, complete with an interior garden. the elegantly shaped skin cantilevers over a surprisingly ordinary urban necessity and contains a hallmark institution of western consumer culture- a fuel station and mcdonald’s respectively. the building opens to the street with an opaque, tiled underbelly that shelters the fuel stations, while a faceted semi-circular circulation space is bordered by an indoor garden.the greenery fans out like a stadium, providing lush visual respite for the mcdonald’s patrons inside the layered hallway.the architecture is a testament to the ability of the built form to elevate rather ubiquitous urban programming.
