Porn for…. Architects?

In All-Time-Favorites, Architecture, Design on October 23, 2008 at 3:40 pm

First it was REGULAR porn, then “Porn for Women” then “Porn for New Moms” and now its…”Stair Porn”?

 

and while I don’t, personally, find stairs a turn on, I think that it has a lot of merit and some beautiful architecture and clever design!

A website devoted wholly to the beauty of the staircase… really cool, actually! Their sister-sites are good too:

The Style Files: Les Bains De Docks

In All-Time-Favorites, Architecture, Design, Life on August 30, 2008 at 8:51 pm

Les Bains des Docks is a modern aquatic complex in Le Havre, France. It was designed by one of my faves, Jean Nouvel. It’s part of a larger revitalisation project of the city in hopes of turning the city into a destination spot…

I would KILL to go swimming in a place like this…it was inspired by the Roman Bath-Houses from the days of yore.. 

A beautiful place, I wish I had one like this in MY city!

House at Jardin del Sol

In All-Time-Favorites, Architecture on August 30, 2008 at 8:33 pm

Corona y P. Amaral Arquitectos from Spain have designed this beauty of a house. This is (no joke) one of the most amazing homes I have seen to date…the infinity pool, the exposed concrete, the giant windows, the VIEW!

If anyone wants to help me steal the identities of the people who live there and move to the Canary Islands…let me know!

 

ahh isn’t it gorgeous…
