The transparent housing concepts by milano-based Santambrogiomilano are designed to be built almost anywhere around the world and allow the inhabitant to be completely immersed in nature. Every component of the dwellings, except for the ground floor, is composed of structural glass pieces. The ‘Snow house’, as the name implies, would be located in colder climates and is constructed of thicker panes capable of withstanding larger loads, namely from the snow, and will help insulate the interior.
No no no no no no.

This takes playing HORSE to a whole new level! French architecture firm a/LTA has designed the perfect urban park fixture in Nantes, France for kids of all ages and sizes! The basketball tree not only gives kids a greater chance of finding an empty hoop, but it also allows them to have a fair shot at making a basket.
The functional structure known as Arbre à Basket, roughly translated as Basket Tree, features five separate basketball hoops attached to limbs that branch out from one tree-like sculptural post. The baskets, each equipped with its own backboard, are each positioned at different heights, allowing for the all-inclusive public to engage in multiple games on the court. Tiny tots and growing kids need not shy away from the fun to be had with their height-appropriate basket. With time, they can move on to the higher hoops, creating a challenge for themselves that can span several years. (Source)

The story behind Don Draper’s new digs: The apartment is set “in a high-rise that feels like it was built in 1960 with a white-carpeted sunken living room and a fascinating fireplace and a Case Study-style kitchen with two pass through windows.”

Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens. 1020 South Street, Philadelphia, PA., a series of lots and buildings that Isaiah Zagar started building into a public art piece. The space is a mosaic sculpture garden that includes things such as bottles, tiles and pieces of mirror. It is a visual depiction of events during the artist’s lifetime, and the history of Philadelphia. The city is known for appreciating art, and the Magic Gardens is a reflection of it. The Gardens host mosaic workshops, concerts and other events.
