Co.Design pointed out a new entrée into the “[insert-design-field-here] porn” category: scaffolding. Copywriter Shaun Usher is the brain behind the Scaffoldage Tumblr, which highlights the exo-skeleton of construction rather than the end result.
What’s especially fascinating is the varying standard for building carapaces across the world: in Italy, they are often covered by canvas painted in a trompe de l’oeil of the edifice lurking within; in New York, virtually no art or design goes into erected scaffolding.
