Inspiring buildings, interiors and architecture in general.
Typical of Beijing, but also found in other cities in China, hutongs are the traditional alleys that used to form the city. Most of Beijing’s hutongs have been destroyed to build large buildings for offices and appartments, but the city tries to keep the ones that are left. Some have already been transformed into hipster paradises, […]
In a perfect world, we would already have alternate clean sources of energy, we would not waste so much and we would stop using plastic bags. But we don’t live in a perfect world, and we need to find the best solutions to deal with the waste. VolkerWessels, a Dutch construction group, commissionned a company […]
Korean artist Beomsik Won likes to play with architecture. He likes to imagine impossible building structures in what he calls Archisculpture. Thanks to digital manipulations, architectural structures get to enter in a new dimension and mess with our minds.
I always thought that architecture that blends in the landscape was a great way to respect the environment. This hunting lodge in the mountains of Norway illustrates this pretty good in my opinion. The little house was built with material found nearby, and it looks almost like a natural geological formation. It was designed by […]
If you’ve been to Beijing, China, you probably checked out the Olympics stadium and know that architects can be inspired by bird nests. Printednest is another project that brings architects and bird nests back together again. The original idea of the project was to bring birds back into the cities by providing them with shelter. […]
I’m usually not a big fan of modern chapels. They rarely give me the warm feeling you can get from a Middle-Age building, probably because of the usual lack of decoration and the edgy shapes. Don’t take me wrong, I’m not against architectural experiments, but I find that it often doesn’t work for sacred buildings. In my […]
This small wedding chapel in Hiroshima is full of poetry, thanks to beautiful wooden panels carved with flowers. 100 wooden panels were used to build it, with patterns inspired by traditional kimono patterns. It was designed by Nikken Space Design.
Ryan Bruxvoort imagined an awesome design for a birdhouse, with a wide area in front for the birds to hang out.
This chapel in Japan has taken a whole new look at the architecture of religious buildings. With a spiraling architecture that looks like a spectacular ribbon, it elevates to the sky in a new manner. Hiroshi Nakamura, a Japanese architect, designed this spectacular building that has two spirals interwinding together, making it the perfect place […]
Justo Gallego Martinez is a former catholic month. In 1963, he started to work on building a cathedral… by himself. 52 years later, you can see the work of his life standing tall in Mejorada del Campo, a small city on the outskirts of Madrid, the capital of Spain. Justo is now 89 years old, […]
Having an awesome ride on a houseboat is listed in every adventurous people’s wishlist. One of the reasons behind this is a serious upgrade that houseboats have made in today’s environment. They not only provide comfort of the traditional home, but also gives you an identity with a sweet on-the-water address. If we think of […]

As a westerner, I’m more used to the beauty of cathedrals and churches, with pictures of Jesus or Mary everywhere. In Islamic religion, depictions of the prophet Muhammad are forbidden, so the mosques gave a much more abstract orientation to their places of worship. Here are the lists of 10 most beautiful mosques in the […]
I slowly got used to the printing small objects, but the idea of being able to print some small (or big) houses doesn’t cease to amaze me. In this project, Andrey Rudenko constructed a little castle in a yard using concrete printed in 3D. The walls and the more complicated parts like the tops of […]
