This concept home by Shanghai-based architect/photographer, Amey Kandalgaonkar, is along the line of the Casa Brutale Cliff House. It shares the same ideology. Where Casa Brutale cuts into a cliff, Kandalgaonkar’s House Inside A Rock introduced straight geometry into the rock. What Kandalgaonkar did there is the perfect marriage of an ancient, organic nature of sandstone stock formation and 21st century modernist architectural design.

Fingerprint is a personal feature most people hold dear because, it is supposedly unique to each individual and hence, it is often use to ID a person. In other words, it is an intimate detail of a person. However, it looks like His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the U.A.E., and Ruler of Dubai, begs to differ. Apparently, the pattern of his fingerprint will be a feature in the upcoming Burj Jumeira skyscraper in Dubai. Continue reading Upcoming Skyscraper In Dubai Will Stick Out Of the Ruler’s Fingerprint
Completed two years ago is a building in southern city of Guiyang, a province known for its natural beauty, called Liebian International Building. There is nothing quite unusual about this skyscraper, but it is in fact the world’s biggest man-made waterfall. You heard that right. It is a waterfall, right smack in the city and as you may have already noted, that is no artificial mountain where gallons of water cascades down its side; it is a building. It is a freaking building! Continue reading China World’s Biggest Man-made Waterfall Has Crazy Running Cost
Some parents lovingly called their child “sugar” and sugar they will be when they play and explore this impressive playground that stood at the Domino Park at the Brooklyn waterfront. The Domino Park Playground, affectionately called Sweetwater, designed by Brooklyn-based artist Mark Reigelman is a homage to American Sugar Refining Company-owned sugar refinery that produces Domino brand sugar that stood at the Brooklyn waterfront for 160 years. Continue reading Sugar Refinery-themed Playground: Is It Why Some Called Their Kids “Sugar”?
Don’t worry. Hell is not upon us, yet. The “darkest building on Earth” is actually a Hyundai pavilion/art installation presented by artist Asif Khan at the 2018 Winter Olympics, happening from February 9-25 at PyeongChang, South Korea. Essentially a black silhouette, especially when viewed in low light, the building appears a regular straight sided structure, but it is really not. The blackness of the building managed to conceal its parabolic sides and the many tiny lights scattered around its exterior surfaces further serve to distract observers from this fact. Continue reading PyeongChang, South Korea Has The Darkest Building On Earth And There’s Nothing Sinister About It

Now, do you have a relatively spacious backyard with 50 AMP supply and sewer connection, or at least, you can make those happen? If your answer to those questions are ‘yes’, then you qualify yourself a Roadhaus Wedge RV Tiny House, a turn-key tiny abode produced by tiny house specialist, WheelHaus. Oh, wait.

While most kids of ages 12-13 were out hurling themselves into the creek or hole up in their home with video games and stuff like that, little Luke Thill spent his summer building a tiny house in his backyard. And he was 12 when he started the project. Luke has build very admirable, beautiful tiny house right in his home’s backyard. The idea came about when Luke became bored last summer and wanted something to do. The the light bulb moment struck after watching a bunch of videos on tiny houses on YouTube. At this point, I am feeling ashamed of myself. At that age, I was all over pop music, pixelated video games (Microsoft Decathlon PC game, anyone? LoL) and printing limited color ‘banner’ from Dot Matrix printer. Man. What was I thinking!? Continue reading 13 Year-Old Built A Tiny House, Makes Me Question My Childhood
Now, we all know how Apple is obsessed with details and that includes obsessing over every elements that goes into its store, and the upcoming flagship store in Chicago is no different. Not only does this store, which is actually a relocation of the original flagship store in Chicago, a showcase of Apple obsession with style and details, it has a little something extra – something which we have never seen and never would have imagined Apple would do so. So what is it that surprise us (or at least me)? The roof. It is in the likeness of a MacBook, complete with the iconic bitten apple branding out there on top, in the open for all on the skyscraper towering around to view. That’s right. This upcoming flagship store in Chicago has a enormous MacBook for the roof. Continue reading Relocated Apple Store In Chicago Has A Giant MacBook On The Roof
Whether you are inspired by the recent movie King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, or always have the dream to lead your own ‘kingdom’ complete with your very own castle, you’d be glad to know that Italy is now giving away over 100 run-dow properties, including a handful of castles, for free. I know right? It is hard to believe anyone can own a castle for absolutely nothing. Well, actually not quite. As many economists will tell you, there’s no such thing as a free lunch and therein lies the caveat: you see, those 103 properties are exactly as described, i.e. run-down, which means restoration is a must, but you have to restore it anyway because that is one of the conditions laid out by Italy’s State Property Agency in exchange for the free property.
