Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid is no stranger to fame, and with good reason. Her designs are spectacular to say the least. Each design she creates is unique yet they have a similarity in that they all seem to defy the laws of gravity. Her Mobile Art Pavilion is no exception. The Pavillion has found its permanent home in Paris having toured New York, Tokyo and Hong Kong since 2008. Featured inside the Pavillion is ...

I pretty much love any form of art, and architecture is no different. I stumbled up this amazing building which serves as a concert hall for Disney. The way it is laid out and the way it is designed is just breath-taking. This piece of art was created by Bruce Mau Design. It was completed in October 2003, but what is more interesting is that it it costed $130 million to make and another $110 ...

Todays feature is the Evans Residence by Bittonidesign Studio located in Los Angeles, California. The house is situated high above the city with spectacular views, and looking at these images makes me feel as if its closer to the clouds than it is to the city if that makes sense. Now this house isn’t the best I’ve seen nor is it my favorite (don’t get me wrong I still love it though) but what ...

A-Cero have done it again! Introducing the “Concrete House”. Now I do love the design and it is truly a work of art without a doubt, but I have to admit it is a bit too much of a concrete feel for my taste. That being said, I still love the modern feel and the strong cut edges that give it a dynamic look. I really think that the surroundings help with the overall ...

I was wondering how lovely it is when religion meets beautiful architecture and how it is not found in Kuwait. Over here, Mosques (in terms of look) only capture random and generic designs. While searching, what caught my eye the most is how other nations create mosques based on their tradition and very similar to buildings they create, but of course with an extra slice of love. Some examples showcase very cheap to build mosques, ...

By far one of my favorite design firms is Spain’s A-cero, and this house is one of the reasons why. The clean feel and open spaces gives it a peaceful presence, and the way they play with space and light is breathtaking. The house features two bedrooms, each with their own bathrooms and closets, a gym, a living area, a kitchen, a solarium and a refreshing terrace. The house spans 2.000 m2 and ...

This amazing amazing “waffle-like” structure built in Seville, Spain was recently completed in April 2011 and became the world’s largest wooden structure. It was designed by J. Mayer H. Architects and cost a total of 90 million euros to build! Everything about the structure is futuristic and unique, the way it clashes with the surrounding architecture makes it seem like something that landed out of space. The fact that it provides shade but ...

This amazing design is made to act as an extension of any home to serve as a retreat called the “Sun Roof” heres a brief description: “The Living Roof offers the essence of the city. It condenses all daily life’s needs into a compact and self-sustaining capsule. Intended as an urban rooftop getaway, but ready to be airlifted into the savanna at short notice, its ultra-insulated shell and regenerative systems allow the Living Roof ...
