Back once again with this week's edition of Ten Best (formally called The Local's Web, which was a pretty lame name in fairness)
Here's the deal; 10 things we found on t'internet this week, first five from this fair isle, the last five from round abouts. All good stuff.
Enjoy and share!

New Irish art site to keep an eye on. Apartial has interesting articles and portfolios from irish tattoo artists, painters, graffiti artists, photographers and more.
2. Dublin by rail, sea or air
Love these new poster illustrations done in the style of early 20th century travel advertisements. Have a look at them all on irelandposters.ie
3. What could have been..
Irish architecture website Archiseek is great for digging out old plans for Dublin that never came to pass, thankfully in most cases. Here’s one proposal for a giant business district on what ultimately became The Ilac Centre.

5. IMMA Concrete Tiki
It takes place in the formal gardens of IMMA, with a clever custom built kitchen space by Tuomey Williams & Watt and collaborations with the likes of K Chido, Fish Shop, Lilliput Stores and more. It was brilliant last year so check it out if you can. It finishes this weekend.
6. The Simpson's House
The Simpson's family homestead with the roof whipped off.
7. The Pizza Hut projector box
Total gimmick but so clever. A project by Oglivy for Pizza Hut in Hong Kong.

9. Frank’s Cafe, Peckham
What was to be a once off pop up is now a regular summer fixture on top of a disused multi-storey car park in Peckham. Super clever structure made from timber, tarp and ratchet straps with killer views over the city, we visited a couple of years back and its as good as it looks. Dublin needs this.
10. Mark E Mix
As unassuming guy but devastatingly consistent in both productions and DJ sets. Here’s a killer mix from mister Mark E
