For those of you that have more money than you know what to do with and could see yourself enjoying sleeping under water, well, this might be the perfect yacht to add to your collection. Kleindienst Group's "Floating Seahorse" debuted in Dubai (obviously) at the Dubai International Boat Show and is a marine yacht that has underwater rooms that potentially could have incredible views depending on what body of water you choose to float it in.

Designed by Japanese artist and architect Kengo Kuma, this bar-restaurant located in Kichijoji outside Tokyo is adorned withheaps of colored recycled cables. "We applied recycled LAN cables, which we call Mojamoja – to describe its shaggy, wooly look – and what is called acrylic ball (left-over melted acrylic byproduct pieces) to everything from interior materials to furniture. As the result, some amazing interior emerged, where form becomes invisible and only materiality and various colors appear as if floating in the air.

If you've ever thought that the Eiffel Tower look a little bit like a Giraffe or that the Guggenheim could be a snail, then you're not alone. Federico Babina, whose architecture-influenced illustrations we've been enjoying for years, has a whole series of famous architects' classic buildings and the animals they look like!

We like the Swiss Alps. We think they are one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the world, filled with wonderful resorts with classy coffee and treacherous ski runs. Hell, we would go to Zurich right now (not really the Alps, per se, but you get our drift). So we are very much into the creation of a 381-meter skyscraper hotel, built in Vals, Switzerland, designed by Morphosis Architects.

So the story goes, in 1879, during one of his rounds, Ferdinand Cheval, a rural postman, stumbles upon an odd stone and is immediately struck with a dream to build a palace. He then devotes the next 33 years of his life building a dream palace. During his daily country rounds of about 18 miles and with the help of a faithful wheelbarrow he would pick up stones.

We're loving this suspended sculptural grass walkway in Poland by Zalewski Architecture Group. The structures is mounted and suspended above a courtyard, giving residents access to the outdoors without walking all the way down the stairs.

The Eames loving, Ice Cube-listening, Los Angeles-appreciating staff at Juxtapoz somehow missed this video of Ice Cube celebrating the Eames...

Among my all-time favorite photographs have always been Ed Ruscha’s aerial landscape shots of Los Angeles parking lots and stadiums. Flying high in commercial airplanes merely teases at the intricacies and structure that man has bestowed on earth, the geometric balance and spatial suburbanization of Southern California. That is what makes this book, Constructing Worlds: Photography and Architecture in the Modern Age, so stunning and historically relevant.
