'Planned Cities from Space' - Wired.com
Our civilization never ceases to mesmerize, we seem to create the most complex of creations for the purpose of ‘efficiency’ or simply aesthetics.  
Coming across this series of satellite images on Wired magazine puts a few things into perspective.  For thousands of years we’ve evolved faster than any other species on Earth.  We create cities that home millions with the ability to plan them so from space they appear to be artwork.  Albeit some more so than others.  
But with this we also see just how insignificant humans are in relation to the scale of Earth, yet we really know how to do some fucking damage.
Cities in order of appearance - Jaipur, India - La Plata, Argentina - Palmanova, Italy - Brasilia, Brazil.

One of the most challenging and demanding aspects of creativity, has to be architecture.  
Either that or composing a 100-piece classical symphony. 
But since those are a dime in a dozen these days, let’s roll with this ridiculously impressive house by Luigi Rosselli Architects.  Now, I don’t and won’t post about houses much - but this one is different, because of where it’s situated and the aspects of it.  
Gordon’s bay is a tiny bay located in Sydney, Australia facing due-east directly out to the Pacific Ocean, perfect for snorkeling and if you’re lucky catching a wave or two.
Which is why I have to pay respect to this design, it adds what a well-designed house should add, a sense of etiquette and legitimacy to it’s location.  You know that in 20,30 even 40 years time, this will still look like it belongs. 
It never ceases to mesmerise when we are able to, out of completely nothing but ideas and inspiration, come up with new ways to build and design something that has been around since the birth of mankind - that in itself is impressive.  
If we all took complete pride and put well thought out ideas into what we do for a passion, I have a feeling that we’d have more respect for the things we take for granted.  
But then again - would this house really be worth discussing?

You ain’t the boss until you sit behind this art-piece aka furniture aka presidentially inspired desk.  Aka The Goggle Desk designed for Babini Office.  
There’s nothing less inspiring than walking into an office, whether it be your own office, your boss’s office or a client’s office, and seeing dull empty walls and the same rectangle desk that’s haunted you since you were at everyone’s beckoned call.
Luckily, Australian born-Dutch designer Danny Venlet, allows us to be inspired.  Picture walking into an office with this desk- a flow of thoughts would to start to pour out, a sign of distinction would be noted and the evidence of uniqueness stands out - pleasantly surprising the person on either side of this desk.
So many times we overlook our surrounding creative environment (work or home) - when really what’s around shapes our success.

Hoverbike vs Martin Jetpack.  Definitely a hard decision to make.  
There’s 2 things about Australia you need to know.  The beaches are beautiful - the woman are even better.  Oh and there is a LOT of unused land.
Which is why the Hoverbike is going to make it a lot easier for people to get around farmers to herd their cattle around.  Really though, this has been created for farmer currently using helicopters to herd cattle from one pasture to the other.
It’s capable of reaching 10,000ft alt and is roughly $45,000.  This will reduce any maintanence costs and petrol costs enormously.
And looks much much cooler than floating around in a chopper.

If Ghandi was a house - he’d be this house right here.
The Pretty Beach House on top of Pretty Beach located 100km from Sydney in Australia is jaw-dropping.
There’s been a dramatic increase in demand for an almost house-like renting style of accomodation - boutique hotels you could call them - but without the international brand behind them, like Hilton or Mariott.
Which is what makes this accomodation so special.
The seven acre land has been turned into 4 pavillions including the main house - each pavilion has its own distinct charasteristics - whether it be part of the trees or overlooking the water…either way there’s no way in hell you’ll want to leave.
King sized bedrooms, champagne, wine, food, heated private pools, cocktail bar, wine cellar, celebrity chef….get the picture?
Not to mention - this part of Australia is one of the most calming and peaceful places on earth…

Sneakerology.  For the sneakerfreaker that wants an education while shopping.
Streetwear store Espionage has recently launched it’s new sneaker store in Sydney, Australia.
Designed by Facet Studio, people who want to pick up kicks only need to choose one from the overwhelming selection and look at the two touch screen displays for info on the shoe and the price.
The layout of the store is definitely different and has a good vibe to it - but having worked in a sneaker store, the worst thing to do is have shoes sitting on top of each other.  
Clutter rids the attention off each individual shoe and overwhelms the person looking to choose something unique.  It works when you have a minimal amount sitting close to each other - but not when its over 40 pairs..

BKK Architect’s have struck gold again with this getaway on the Victorian coastline of Australia.
Designed as a retreat for BKK client’s (or simply to show off how good they are).  It almost looks like a mix between a rubic’s cube unfolded into the ground with a..well beached house.
Nothing better than analysing the visual concepts throughout the layout and design of a house - really shows what human creativity is capable of doing.
