These pieces by Tara Donovan are both minuscule and immense! As always, I love to see small objects put together to create something huge, but even cooler that the small objects are so normal – buttons, pencils, styrofoam cups… That stuff never ceases to amaze me. See many more of her pieces here.
Isn’t this like every kid’s fantasy? I think if I had a slide next to the stairs in my house I would only slide down to the lower level. This picture is part of a slideshow on Cookie Magazine’s website, featuring a green home built by a British architect. When making the plans for his house, he let his children have a say in what they would like as well, which is how he ended up with a slide by the stairs! I love it!
I’m not sure if any of you are fans of canoeing, but I think you’ll agree that this clear canoe is awesome! One of the best things about canoeing is looking at everything around you and in the water. How awesome would it be to look right down under your feet as you’re going along?! There’s also a clear kayak, which is pretty sweet. Both can be found right here.
This amazing house was designed by Senosiain Arquitectos for a couple in Mexico City after they decided they wanted a house that looked like a snail shell! They now live there with their children. I can’t even imagine what it must be like to live in a house like that! I especially love the rainbow glass front window. For more detailed information about the house, and some more incredible pictures, see this page on DVICE.
