Planar House 1I was stunned by THIS! via materialicious & still am. Did u see how the light try to escape squeezing through unsymetrical holes on the perforated sheet & in between gaps of the wall?
Planar House (United States, 2002-2005) design by steven holl architects as simply describe by materialicious is from tilt-up concrete walls and Cor-Ten steel panels. It was meant to house a large contemporary art collection of Great 20th century works by Bruce Nauman, Robert Ryman, Jeff Koons and Jannis Kounellis which includes important video artworks.

Nassim Park Residences

I've always love simple clear detail. Therefore, stunningly simple architecture that respects nature will always have my attention and the creators/ architects/ designers of such amazing work are those who i look up for.
Nassim Park Residences nestled in the heart of Singapore’s most desirable neighbourhood is an unique collaboration between three internationally acclaimed creative minds: Singapore-based architect Chan Soo Khian, Japanese landscape architect Shunmyo Masuno, and French interior designer Christian Liaigre. Thus, this newly launch luxury condominium which consists of only four-bedrooms and penthouse apartments is believe to be designed in harmony and with respect of all things...Nassim Park Residences 1Nassim Park Residences 2Nassim Park Residences 3Nassim Park Residences 4Nassim Park Residences 5Nassim Park Residences 6Nassim Park Residences 7Nassim Park Residences 8Nassim Park Residences 9

Lunuganga- branch bookshelf

Lunuganga 1
Branch bookshelf anyone? The piece is a response to the culture shock experience in a flooded, jungley environment Wok suddenly thrown into when they went to work in Sri Lanka. We took the image of partially submerged trees and translated it into shelves that have both thequalities of the overgrown lake that surrounded us and the quietness ofEuropean furniture.-Wok
