There are many architects that don’t take creative risks for many different reasons, including but not limited to: finance, doubt, deadlines, etc. In Japan, there is the S-House, a transparent glass house that looks like a cross between an Apple Store and an M.C.

It used to be an old farm conveniently located in front of vineyards, and now it is a house big enough for three … { Continue Reading }

When I picture Johannesburg, South Africa; I think of District 9 and the dilapidated huts the aliens were forced to live in.
