Dorte Mantrup's Whale Museum in Norway,

Seamless blend of a strong visual concept, subtely placed in a natural environment. Currently under construction.

and for a little shameless self promotion, A neat example of form/material following function.

Currently under construction (i've got a neat timelapse of that) Waterlandseweg pedestrian/cyclist Bridge in Almere, simaltaniously crossing a canal, pedestrian route, nature zone, cycling route and two highways The shape is a parametric design based on negotiations between (tensile) strenght optimization, key viewpoints, and movement aswell as heavy and complex restrictions regarding zoning and (constantly shifting) heights.

The bridge is composed of Corten steel, and will evenly rust and so protect itself in the humid climate, requiring little to no maintainance.

Nice additions
This is so surprising from China putting limits on skyscraper heights to just 250m



I don't know I don't like the concept of cookie cuttered 3d buildings

I've always enjoyed the architecture of the A-frame house. I want to have a custom built one made to live in. Small, around 1000 sq feet, built to the passive house standard.
