Guz Architects have created a tropical bungalow perfect for it’s location in Singapore called The Fish House. The modern home is designed to encourage natural ventilation, to do this the team of architects set out to create large open spaces, and glass walls that open up into functional outdoor activity areas. Guz explained that their main goal was to create a home with seamless integration of the surrounding nature. This was accomplished through the pond-like pool and by creating great views of the water and vegetation.

Paris based photographer Julien Palast knows how to showcase the human body in a particular way. What’s interesting about this series is that despite basically shrink-wrapping and hiding the human forms, you actually become more aware of them. The contours and curves of the female and male figures are slickly highlighted by the well-selected material—a gradiented array of vibrantly tropical colors and just enough sheen in all the right places.

Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2013 Teaser


Picture 2

After the 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition was released last February, the public couldn’t get enough of Kate Upton, the issue’s then-19-year-old cover model. Fast forward a year later and, well, the world still seems pretty Kate crazy. As for why Upton has been plucked from the usual tropical locales that typically serve as the backdrops of most of SI’s swimsuit shoots, this year the models and photographers traveled to all seven continents, including Antarctica, where the cover shoot took place (thus the parka). While one would imagine that readers are probably more interested in the scantily clad young models than the landscapes in the background, Sports Illustrated decided to travel the globe anyway.

But before you get too hung up on Kate, there are plenty of other females with fabulous figures inside the mag as well. Lucky for you, Sports Illustrated has shared some of the sexy shots. Models Hannah Davis and Alyssa Miller, both 22, and the future Mrs. John Legend, 27-year-old Chrissy Teigen, didn’t make the cover, but their photo shoots were most likely much more enjoyable than Upton’s, as all three ladies look got to don their two-pieces in warmer climates, or at least warmer than the icy outdoors, where Upton was photographed. Teigen traveled to Easter Island, Chile, for her shoot; Miller was photographed in Great Barrier Reef, Australia; and rookie Davis had China as her background.

A Solar Floating Resort.


Italian industrial designer Michele Puzzolante has come up with a conceptual floating luxury hotel suite he claims could be entirely self-powering thanks to the dye-sensitized solar cells which would be integrated into the vessel’s walls.  Puzzolante suggests his “Solar Floating Resort” could be navigated along exotic coast lines, while its six resident passengers observe marine wildlife thanks to its underwater “observation bulb”.
