I just want to dive into the ocean and float on my back. I want to be blinded by the sun and hear nothing but the sea.
Jun Igarashi Architects created ‘Case’, a house located in the suburbs of Sapporo. The site is a typical suburban subdivision. In order to take full advantage of the small 50-square-meter building space, the architects built up, integrating wooden lofts that add 30 meters of extra floor space while keeping the residence open and bright. Curved staircases connect the different elements and integrate a playful element. To provide an external buffer, steel wires were stretched from the roof to the garden, providing a support for climbing plants that create a green exterior ‘wall’.
Ice Circles- Mostly observed in Scandinavia and North America they are thin, circular slabs that rotate slowly in the water. Most commonly they are compared to crop circles and are associated with aliens. Scientists have proven that ice circles are created by a rising mass of warm water swirling in a circular pattern due to the earths rotation. It is crazy what things the earth can whip up.
