Floating Art Museum Planned Off The Coast of China

Pingtan island is located off the coast of China towards Taiwan. It is near this island that a new floating museum is proposed.

Taking a dune-like form, the artificial island will be accessible from the mainland through a narrow undulating bridge.

Suspension Bridge Gives You The Daredevil Feel of Walking Off a Cliff

Being a daredevil is cool, but then for whatever reason, most of us just can’t take the risk. There’s always a way out though, like this suspension bridge on the Dachstein Massif Alpine peak.

Indoor Diving and Skydiving Center

I look at this and I think, how does this even work? Indoor diving I can understand, but indoor skydiving is a whole different plate. For skydiving you expect to jump thousands of feet, which a moderately high building would probably not be able to accomplish. Then again, you add enough perspective, and things just might fall into place. Warsaw studio Moko Architects has plans to build an indoor diving and skydiving center.
