Bikers around the world complain of not having a good enough place to ride their bikes, and the roads of course aren’t very friendly to bicycles even when things continue to change slowly but surely. If the proposal from architects JDS goes through, Chongming would be the envy of every bicyclist. The proposed concept is [...]
Lawns generally tend to be flat and grassy. Not that there is anything wrong with that style, but that does mean a little creative playing with the grassy green can make it look cool and unique. Designed by Hong Kong Studio Design Systems, Axial Symphony is a penthouse centered around its inhabitants.
Just check out this full scale Lego church in the Netherlands. Its appearance would make it look like millions of plastic bricks would have gone into making it, but turns out there isn’t much Lego at work here. These colorful bricks are called Legioblocks, are made of concrete and are huge cinderblock variations of the [...]
Photographer Victor Enrich retouches his photographs of cityscapes and architecture to give the structures and impossible, fantastical look, quite like the dream worlds of Inception. Except of course, the structures and buildings here are a lot stranger, taking on impossible designs and shapes.
Architects Studio Velocity designed the Montblanc House in Okazaki, Japan. Made for a family of four, the house includes room for the shop of the young couple. It clearly is an offset from the houses in the neighborhood, all of which seem to have conventional designs. For the Montblanc House, the windows turn themselves into [...]
We think the world would be a better place if we actually had buildings made into the shape of Filip Dujardin‘s photographs. Granted, they are a wee bit architecturally impossible to really exist, and would potentially create quite a commotion if they came into existence for real, but they are totally mind-blowing. Filip created the [...]
Skyscrapers, if anything are conspicuous enough to be seen from miles away. This concept from GDS Architects seems to be too shy, or too modest to put on the usual flair. But flair it has, and that in incredible style. The intention of the architects is to give Korea, and the world, the first ever [...]
Everything about the design of this kindergarten spells amazing. The “Ring Around a Tree” kindergarten in Tokyo by Tezuka Architects probably is the coolest kindergarten to ever come around. Via TreeHugger
This is like Lego, only a bit different because these objects were not meant to be stacked. And this makes it all the more better. Why? Because we don’t know; this is cool, okay? It definitely is innovative, stacking so many things does take some talent and planning, especially if you are going to give [...]
A group in Paris has intentions of converting the Eiffel Tower into a giant metallic tree by covering it in over 600,000 plants. They hope to accomplish this by covering the structure in 12 tons of rubber tubing that would make way for the gradual addition of plants on the tower.
Tired of living in unimaginative, “mass produced box design” homes, UK-based Simon Dale decided to live in more creative quarters. So he moved with his family to the Welsh countryside, in a hobbit house he built himself. It took Dale about £3,000 ($4670) and four months to dig into the hillside and create a hobbit [...]
As the Biblical story goes, Moses parted water of the Red Sea to lead Israelites out of Egypt. While this sunken pedestrian bridge in the Netherlands does kind of the same feat with much less involvement of the supernatural, it still is pretty amazing. Designed by RO & AD Architects, the sunken bridge leads to [...]
Located in a residential/industrial area of Youkaichi, Japan, the Corner House is sharp example of architecture. Built by Kyoto-based architecture firm Eastern Design Office, “On The Corner” house is a seven unit rental complex with a severely triangular shape. It was this shape of the land that put several developers off the idea of constructing [...]
Set to come up in China’s Chongqing mountain area, the Eco Bridge is a structure we’d like more constructions to emulate. Life would be easier if all structures were built with a slight thought towards aesthetics as well, rather than just a hurry to complete the darned construction. Designed by Taranta Creations, the Eco Bridge [...]
We like design ideas that take us to a new clean, green world. We’re also intrigued by the fact that as awesome as these ideas look and sound, they sometimes seem to lack pragmatism to a certain degree. But they do make up for that in utopian vision and style, so we’re absolutely cool with [...]
