Dick Clark’s rockin’ retreat listed for $3.5 million – A home fit for a Flintstone 1 – CNNMoney

Dick Clark has listed his unique, one-bedroom Malibu home for $3.5 million, according to Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.

Whoever buys the place from the “world’s oldest teenager” will likely feel as if they are channeling another celebrity: Fred Flintstone.

The architect, Phillip Jon Brown, said the prehistoric design was dictated by circumstance. The 23-acre site is next to the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreational Area, which originally objected to Clark building a home on the property.

“[Clark] dug in his heels and said he was going to build a house there,” said Brown, “I came up with the idea that if the house looked like a rock formation, the park conservancy would let us build on top. They liked the concept.”

Projection Mapping – Buildings come to Life!

Destination Docklands concert - Jean-Michel Jarre

Architectural Projection Mapping is the process of projecting computer-generated images onto a building, a sort of 21st-Century son et lumière and probably what Jean-Michel Jarre would have used for his concerts if he had had the technology twenty years ago.

To start with, here’s an example of how you could use a building for advertising purposes:

Here is an amazing recent show at the Plaza de Toros in Albacete, as part of the Theatre Festival of Castilla-La Mancha. This is the full 15-minute version, so put it on fullscreen and enjoy!

Finally, fans of ACDC and / or Iron Man should not miss this video, a presentation of the new movie at Rochester Castle, UK. Again, put it on fullscreen and turn up the volume!
