Didier Faustino's Explosion-Inspired Dream House

Design // Monday, February 03, 2014
Portuguese architect Didier Faustino designed this house modeled on the form of an explosion for a series of Spanish dream houses to be built by French developer Chistian Bourdais. 'Similarly to the centre of the Big Bang the house appears to draw in as well as reflect the light at its core,' said the designers.' The floors cause the body to feel weightless due to a lack of traditional spatial references.'

"The Fragile Beasts" Paper Sculpture

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 30, 2014
17 undergraduate architecture students from Łódź University of Technology designed and constructed the Fragile Beasts sculpture using digital modeling software and scripts to break down the forms into shapes suitable for curved folding. "Curved folding isn't just the aesthetic, it's also the structure: it can lend substantial stiffness to fairly flimsy material."

New Works of Dean Monogenis

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 15, 2014
One of our favorite artists we discovered last year was Brooklyn-based painter Dean Monogenis, an artist who can create wonderful architectural settings that balance on the edge of futurism and surealism. Not only did the artist have a busy 2013 with a ton of new paintings, he is currently showing in a group show at Walter Maciel in Los Angeles... 

88 Variations on the Same Building by Victor Enrich

Juxtapoz // Thursday, December 12, 2013
Taking a building in Munich, Germany, photographer Victor Enrich gave himself the task of trying to come up with 88 separate variations of the structure using only what already existed. The result is a fantastic exercise in creativity and imagination, not to mention a few rather brilliant new building designs that we think should be explored...

"Archicine" Illustrations of Iconic Architecture in Film

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 04, 2013
This fun new series of illustrations titled "ARCHICINE" is the work of Federico Babina and depicts iconic architecture portrayed in film. "Scenographies imagined, realized and built to tell stories and characters. The architectural space in the film is not just a background but is transformed as an added protagonist. Movies have the ability to transport us to different worlds and lives and let us live and breathe real or fantastic architecture."

Henry Hargreaves and Caitlin Levin's Gingerbread Architecture

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 03, 2013
Re-creating museums such as the Guggenheim, The Louvre, and the Tate Modern, artist Henry Hargreaves and stylist Caitlin Levin carefully baked, glued, cooked, carved, assembled (and hopefully eventually get to eat) these detailed gingerbread "houses!" The candy buildings will be on display at Dylan's Candy Bar at Art Basel this year.

Romanian Salt Mines Turned into History Museum

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 02, 2013
The Salida Turda salt mines in Romania were excavated in the 17th century and were crucial to the Romans as a source for salt and wealth. Now a museum, three mines reaching as deep as 120 meters underground feature a sports arena, Ferris wheel, mini golf course, bowling lanes, and a boat-able underground lake!

"Mark's House" in Flint, Michigan

Street Art // Saturday, November 09, 2013
A 28-foot-tall tudor-style structure with reflective mylar has been built in a downtown parking lot of Flint, Michigan by architect William Villalobos with colleagues Cesc Massanas and Tomas Selva. Mark’s House pays tribute to the causes of the difficult housing market that has brought foreclosure to an overwhelming amount of homes in Flint. "People don't only lose a house; they lose a bunch of memories that are recorded in the back of their brains that are attached to something physical," says William Villalobos. To reach out past their own local community and connect globally, the underside of the structure contains photos of Kickstarter supporters who helped this project materialize.
