    @Lada 🏡 PrkicThese artworks are very creative and eye catching.I'm certain they will satisfy the scientific curiosity of many construction engineers and will be met with a highest level of interest and desire to implement them everywhere. These waved constructions reminds me with the creativity of Zaha Hadeed architectures in Germany.Zaha's designs were made to depict the customs ,ideas and appearance of time using the sea waves scenes which are existed every where.Thank you for sharing such creativity.

    Snøhetta’s luxury cabin with Aurora Borealis views opens at Treehotel - If a room with Aurora Borealis views sounds like the perfect getaway, you’ll love what’s popped up at Sweden’s Treehotel. The boutique hotel, which comprises designer treehouses near the Arctic Circle, just welcomed its first guests to the 7th room, a luxury elevated cabin designed by architecture firm Snøhetta. Hovering ten meters off the ground, the elevated dwelling is a contemporary take on the traditional Nordic cabin and comfortably immerses guests in the beautiful Lapland landscape. - http://inhabitat.com/snohettas-luxury-cabin-with-aurora-borealis-views-opens-at-treehotel/ Claire 🐝 Cardwell

    Clean lines on the exterior, Claire, draw the eye upwards through the various levels of the roof structure, just in case you get bored of the view to the great outdoors. But the whole building comes together at night with the clever placement of subtle lighting, including the pool, which begs for a twilight or evening swim. Funnily enough the interior is attractive and exciting (often a disappointment in such bold exteriors) and features just the right splashes of colour, where needed, and a plethora of interesting adornments and ornaments to keep the occupants glad to return to a home atmosphere.

    IMAGINATION CREATES A NEW REALITY ► The Kuchlbauer Tower, a beautiful work of art designed by Friedensreich Hundertwasser with its round, wavy shapes and organic lines in harmony with nature. It is a 35 meter high observation tower and the landmark of the Kuchlbauer Brewery in Abensberg, Germany. The design was modified and revised by the architect Peter Pelikan, after Hundertwasser‘s death, and the tower was completed in 2010.

    I must admit, Lada, that I do not find this particular structure to my taste and cannot help but feel some compassion for those resident or working in nearby buildings. I am willing, however, purely in the interests of science, to sample a few of the Bavarian beers at the premises, in order to establish if there is a direct correlation between ale consumption and architectural appreciation. 🍺😉

    San Francisco’s Seasteading Institute has signed a memorandum of understanding with the French Polynesian government that brings the world’s first floating city closer to reality. The Seasteading Institute first established in 2008 has long sought to implement their vision of self-sustaining communities that can withstand rising sea levels, partnering with DeltaSync in 2013 to build a pilot project in The Netherlands. The new agreement could see construction on a full-blown city begin in the South Pacific as early as 2019. - http://inhabitat.com/worlds-first-floating-city-one-step-closer-to-reality-in-french-polynesia/ Claire 🐝 Cardwell

    Interesting concept, Claire, and relatively close to home for me as many inhabitants of some of the smaller and lower elevation Torres Strait Islands (North of Queensland) are losing or have already lost their homes and land, as tides and recurring flood events become more and more severe. The challenge of floating mechanisms being resistant to typhoons and cyclones still remains, however.

    Building in a flood zone sounds like asking for trouble, but that doesn’t have to be the case if you use the right construction techniques. The most basic strategy to avoid rising waters is to raise the buildings above the flood level, but houses that actually float off the ground when waters rush in are impressive. While this type of automated flood defense isn’t as common as elevated homes, we may see it pop up in more houses as flooding threatens to become a regular occurrence around the world. http://inhabitat.com/6-amphibious-houses-that-float-to-escape-flooding/Claire 🐝 Cardwell

    Emergence as art is always fascinating. It is interesting that the Mandelbrot set which also looks so beautiful is not its natural colour and the process of colouring is interesting in itself. The link below takes us through that :

    Colouring the Mandelbrot Set
    http://yozh.org/2010/12/01/mset005/

    This article describes "escape time" and goes on to say :

    "If we know that a particular point generates a sequence which escapes, and we know the escape time of that sequence, then we can color that point based upon its escape time. By doing this, pretty spectacular images can be created."

    Colour brings home the details that would otherwise be missed in the natural black and white and adds the one quality to complexity that all humans appreciate, that of beauty.
