The winners have been announced for the Bee Breeders Tokyo Pop Lab architecture competition. The competition brief called for the design of a new program for the study and production of pop culture media. The unique and original nature of the brief resulted in submissions varying considerably, from fairly pragmatic to completely ideological.
The winning submissions were chosen for their well considered definition of popular culture, the clarity of their representation, and their clear concept of the structure of the laboratory’s program.
The first place winners are a team from Italy whose project consisted of two large cubes placed in opposing corners of the site, lifted above the ground plane, and rejoined with an elevated walkway.

Jerin Scott loves creating unique vintage inspired jewelry for those with a wistful affection for the past. Each piece is designed in Jerin’s home studio in Aransas Pass, TX. With a degree in Accounting from Texas A&M University, Jerin spent the first 10 years after college in the hustle and bustle of Corporate America. However, she always dreamed of a more creative career that would give her the flexibility to spend more time with her husband and their two children. Her jewelry business, formally known as Out of the Blue, was founded in 2007 after a leap-of-faith escape of the 9-to-5 life. Jerin’s designs have had worldwide success, being sold in 27 countries so far. Her jewelry has been featured in Country Living Magazine, Venus Zine, and numerous blogs.
