Archiecture: Ultramodern Water Houses in Dubai

Luxury Living on the Water

(now that’s a view!!!)

Now of course why would I want to live in a regular house when I can live in this? Talk about a water mansion! And it only gets better at Dubia:

The island of Nurai is one of the latest of Dubai developments to catch the fancy of foreign visitors and potential investors. While much of the expansion of Dubai has slowed there is still an enormous amount of money moving through it. The residences shown here (above) feature bridge-only accessibility, rooftop decks complete with private pools and countless other luxurious amenities (source Dornob)

Architecture: Chelsea’s Pier 57 Thinking About An Underwater Attraction

Pier 57 Chelsea's New Underwater Design

(but what exactly are you going to see underwater in the murky Hudson?)

Now this is luxury traveling. If they really do it I will definitly be going to see it and use it. Here is a quote from Curbed.com:

As expected, the Hudson River Park Trust designated Youngwoo & Associates as the developer to turn Pier 57 at 15th Street into a rip-roaring New York City waterfront attraction—one that can generate some revenue for the upkeep of Hudson River Park. We’re cautiously optimistic! It’s not that we don’t enjoy theYoungwoo bid, with its green space, canoe docks, Tribeca Film Festival venue and “Underwater Discovery Center.”

I WILL be taking pictures of this if they build it. Head over to Curbed for more shots if you want of the rednerings.

The New Acropolis Museum

THE NEW ACROPOLIS MUSEUM

The Acropolis Museum is an archaeological museum focused on the findings of the archaeological site of the Acropolis of Athens. The museum was built in order to house every artifact found on the rock and on its feet, covering a large period of time, from the Greek Bronze Age to Roman and Byzantine Greece but lies also on the archaeological site of Makrygianni, ruins of a part of Roman and early Byzantine Athens.

I am totally wanting to see this museum. I wish I go to museums more. I hope to change that this summer (too bad I don’t know enough people who would like to go to museums).

Watch the video:

The development totals approx. 90,000 m2 of offices, commercial space and possibly housing, located at one of Oslo’s most valuable sites, the former postal sorting office adjacent to the central station.
