First there was co-working, then co-living, and it looks like we’re about get co-roaming next… New startup Roam is looking to build a network of living spaces, giving visitors homes in cities across the world.

There’s more to architecture than meets the eye, according to Frenchman Zacharie Gaudrillot-Roy. The photographer has created a series depicting just the facades of buildings in ‘a vision of a new world that would be only an image without intimate space’. Head to Designboom to see Gaudrillot-Roy’s Facades series, which is on show at the Galerie Düo in Paris until 30 May.

If the internet were a real place, it would be a little Italian village called Civitacampomarano (say it quickly five times). Artist Biancoshock, who recently installed tiny rooms inside Milan’s manholes, has infiltrated the small community, replacing its sign posts, shop fronts and phone booths with the branding of internet giants such as eBay, WhatsApp and Facebook.
