Tree House Restaurant

Street Art // Saturday, January 28, 2012
If by chance you happen to find yourself with a special someone in Okinawa, Japan, this giant tree house restaurant is known for its romantic and quiet restaurant ambiance.  Deceiving from in photos, this tree is not a real Gajumaru tree and is actually constructed of concrete.

Abstractions in Nature by Pard Morrison

Juxtapoz // Monday, January 23, 2012
Colorado-based artist Pard Morrison creates geometric abstractions that he places in nature and captures them with photography. What we really hope is that Morrison leaves the pieces be for a random person to come across. That would make the project even better.

Passing Cloud

Street Art // Thursday, January 05, 2012

The Cloud

Street Art // Wednesday, January 04, 2012
Projected to be finished in Seoul, South Korea, in 2016, The Cloud is a controversial pair of skyscrapers designed by Dutch firm MVRDV.  Named after the “pixilated cloud” connecting the two towers, some critics say there is a strong resemblance to the Twin Towers on 9/11.  We think it’s a stretch, what do you think?
