Paula Lorence 

Paula Lorene created a collection of objects to aid children with autism spectrum disorders with their sensory development.

The collection includes twelve objects made from various types of materials that are made to produce different tactile sensations when they are touched by children.

Such objects are to be used during therapy sessions, which includes the stimulation of touch and texture which soothes anxiety and helps with focus.

The designer separated the objects into three levels, the firs is for  children who are particularly sensitive, the second is for those who are more developed and are able to manage stronger tactile simulations and the last is used for children who have anxiety and panic attacks.

Mirrored House by Doug Aitken

Photography is by Doug Aitken Workshop

Artist Doug Atiken created a house shaped mirror installation inside one of the historic buildings in Detroit, Michigan built in 1900.  The highly reflective nature of the design acts as a complementary contrast with the white marble walls and architectural details of the original bank building.

The installation is located inside a grand room that spans an entire city block with historic doors and high marble ceilings.  The pavilion made entirely of mirrors follows the design of a one story L-shaped residential structure.
