Camouflaged bunkers in Switzerland, from a new book by Leo Fabrizio. Coudal has a featurette on the restoration of Mies' S.R.Crown Hall at the Illinois Institute of Technology. The IIT has a Mies Van de Rohe Society. Crown Hall, of course, was the site of Mies' infamous 'camouflaged columns', as his slender steel structure had to be sprayed with fire-proofing legacy of the 1871 Chicago Fire. 'Mies went from the direct to the poetic, spraying concrete on the columns, then facing them with black-painted steel to create the illusion of an exposed structure.'

Radical Cartography (via the map room) / what's on? Check upcoming, freshly owned by yahoo / remote control mail will steam open your envelopes, scan your correspondence and email it to you wherever you are / a few links via rotational: Uri Geller Web Design, Free 3D Models of Great Buildings / dare you enter the rocket racing league? / Kapitza document their books beautifully: The Pits, the story of an archaeological dig, and William Morris, a catalogue accompanying an exhibition at the Whitworth Gallery in Manchester / photography by Izima Kaoru / Facade is billed as 'a one-act interactive drama', via Idle Thumbs. You can download it using bittorrent: we'll report back when we've played it.

Thanks to Brian for the link to the work of painter Will Cotton, which exists on the interface between kitsch, pin-up and pop. See also Sharon Core's candy and cake photos, the Thiebauds series (no prizes for guessing the inspiration (previously noted). Core is a trained pastry chef, a comparison that, although mouth-watering, 'makes you feel kind of sorry for the newer medium.'

Old pedal cars from the Petersen Auto Museum (via bean rocket). The museum's website has an online exhibition entitled 'French Curves: The Automobile as Sculpture' / Balikli Kaplica is a thermal spa near Kangal, Turkey. The hot waters teem with tiny fish that are said to help with skin complaints. Apparently, they are regular fish who can cope with the temperature but thrive on the flakes of skin. They're known as Doctor Fish.

The Punk Vault and Strange Reaction, mp3 logs / a collection of weather icons (via Swiss miss) / er, your laptop is broken / re-opening soon: the De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill-on-Sea / Beyond the Valley sells interesting stuff / Look at this..., a linklog, including details on how to restore the 267 Corgi Batmobile. That was one very complex toy.
