Architects are, sometimes, people a little weird. They absolutely want to offer buildings in which the apartments are modular. The simplest method is to put doors everywhere. Another method is to install sliding panels, which usually fit in the wall.
Here, the architect has created sliding panels that line up … outside.
True, it makes modular apartments. But the exterior aspect of the building is … awful.
And imagine a little storm and that the panels fall on the ground, on people …
Well, ok, architects are creative people. But there are sometimes limits to this creativity. Judge for yourself and give me your opinion.
For those who have never seen sequoias, the rest of this article will seem strange.
When you approach a sequoia forest, you get the impression that everything is normal. And as we get closer, we see that things are weird. And once inside, surprise: Suddenly, one has the impression to have become a dwarf in the land of giants.
It is at this moment that one can understand this project of making dwellings inside the trunks of trees.
Of course, the internal structure will be strengthened and a base will be buried. And openings will be made in the trunk.
Today, China is one of the most polluted countries in the world. First, because China produces a lot of things for the rest of the world, textiles, mobile phones, … And these manufactures are made in factories that are often polluting. Then, because the bulk of its energy comes from coal-fired power plants.
It is for this reason that we must salute the project of this architect who proposes to make buildings covered with plants. The buildings will be much more aesthetic and above all, they will be able to fix carbon dioxide.
On the photographs, the buildings are really beautiful, even if it is a representation and not reality.
I dream of a world in which all the buildings will be so. We can no longer say: I have had enough of living in the city, I am going to live in the country.They say: I’m tired of pesticides and agricultural pollutants, I’m going to live in the city.
Do you know the biggest buildings in the world? The Burj Khalifa (2009 – Dubai, United Arab Emirates), Tokyo Skytree (2011 – Tokyo, Japan) and Abraj Al Bait Towers (2011 – Mecca, Saudi Arabia). Forget about all this, future projects are simply incredible. The heights of these buildings will be 2,067 feet, 2,087 feet, and … 3,281 feet! The angels will be nearby.
You know the game Minecraft which consists of creating buildings or worlds populated by extraordinary creatures. If you have children, you surely know this game.

Power plants are not known to be aesthetic buildings. Their function is to distribute electricity to everyone. But what if the building is no longer used? One of the solutions is to involve an architectural firm to rethink the building. Here, the walls have been preserved and the interior has been completely redone to make a cafe and restaurant. The result is interesting and makes you want to see if the cook is up to the restaurant.
What a great idea! A man had the idea to photograph the same buildings for 40 years. This is how a building can be degraded, vegetation invades everything, and the building rises from its ashes. One can see the same kind of evolution at the scale of a city (Post: Cities before and after) but it is even more striking at the scale of a house, because it is on a human scale.
One word: awesome! When looking at the construction of a building or a bridge, it’s already impressive human scale. But when we look at the scale of an entire city and over 15, 25 or 100 years, it becomes spectacular. All the urban landscape changes, but especially in Asia and the Middle East that the changes are the most important. Look at these photographs and you will not believe your eyes!
