It’s a good job that these vertical forests in Nanjing, China are going to produce 132 pounds (60kg) of oxygen every day, because they’ll literally take your breath away when you see them.

How can one fight the greyness and blandness of everyday life? With mad painting skills, apparently. Boris Chernichenko, who comes from the Russian city of Astrakhan, smote banality by decorating the stairwell in his apartment building. No more plain, white-ish walls – they’re now decorated with murals of natural landscapes.

These series of pictures are the result of a 7 year long journey that brought me to countries such as Latvia, Israel and Germany. The story begins in the summer of 2006, a crucial date in my life, because after 2 years of deep thinking, I finally decided to quit as a freelance 3D architectural illustrator, a job that had kept me busy for over a decade.

The Carbuncle Cup, awarded to “the ugliest building in the United Kingdom completed in the last 12 months,” was doled out to the hapless recipient this year. Thankfully the Cup is bestowed upon an inanimate building so no one’s feelings are hurt; well, except the architect’s. The “victor” of 2015 was a building dubbed by Londoners as “The Walkie-Talkie” – real name 20 Fenchurch. The building has been known to burst nearby objects into flames, thanks to a concave face and a sky garden that...

With so many nations exploding economically over the last two or three decades, people keep running out of ideas for what to build. Like every profession, there are two types of architects. Those that play it safe and re-hash the same old design with a small twist, and those creative geniuses that take the chances required to build something fresh and magnificent. Unfortunately the geniuses sometimes get too creative, providing internet fodder for the rest of us that can sit back and mock...

Deforestation has a significant environmental impact. Many studies suggest that is a contributor to global warming; it impacts the water cycle by reducing the amount of water in the soil and air; it contributes to soil loss; and it results in a decline in biodiversity. We can either work with nature, or work against it. On this spectrum, these architects have decided to find a middle ground: instead of chopping down trees and building their houses, the trees are incorporated as a part of the...

Matthias Jung creates his personal dream houses. He has been creating collages since he was a child. First with glue and scissors, then later in his father‘s photo laboratory, and now digitally.

Like a scene from a fantasy movie, a dilapidated room that appears to have been literally ripped out of a building remains suspended in mid air above Nantes, France. Its walls were torn apart, revealing bricks below the plaster, and wood floors reveal the joists inside. The floating room is accessible via a ladder. The gravity defying surreal installation is the work of Argentinean artist Leandro Erlich. The large-scale piece, called “Monte-meubles – L’ultime déménagement” (literally - The...
