Hello my dear friends!! for today´s post we prepared something special! We have the pleasure to know a great photographer and blogger Aimée Pesado; who recently shared with us some beautiful photographs that she took on her recent trip to the Caribbean.
Her trip began in San Juan; Puerto Rico on a cruise named Jewel of the Seas. The Schedule the ship had was to navigate by night and to stop by day on a different island.
Some places that Aimee visited were: Saint Martin, Barbados, Antigua, Barbuda, etc. Her idea for the pictures was to express the personality of each place and represent how special it is on the face of this earth we live in.
Aimée Pesado, is a talented photographer, and she is also an incredible blogger, you can learned more about her and her incredible work on photography and fashion on her blog.http://fromstreetwithlove.me/; so check it out and don´t forget to tune in on our next post!
A new year means a new beginning, new adventures, new goals and one of our goals this year is to become more organized with our uploading schedule. So we decided to upload a new post once a week specially on Thursdays!! So be tuned to see more about our contents!
On today’s post we will talk about an amazing museum; the Zentrum Paul Klee Museum. This is a beautiful project located in Bern Switzerland, created by Renzo Piano; an italian architect. The building was created in homage to the great painter Paul Klee; one of the most influential artists of the 20th century.
The museum is located near Schöngrüng, northeast of Bern. In the middle of a meadow of green tranquility this museum looks like if it was implanted in the ground. There is a forest in the background and the Alps on the merits, in which the building tries to blend into.
The design of the museum is based on curves emerging from the ground forming an arch and arriving to the floor again, and the intention is to adapt the project to the surrounding environment.
The structure is made of steel girders, and the facades are made of glass, combining these materials in the exterior with grass and a diversity of vegetation; the principal materials used in the interior are combined with oak on the floor.
We think that good architecture is one that really adapts to the enviroment and Zentrum Paul Klee Museum achieves it!
Happy New Year!!!! We hope 2015 would be a year full of success for all of you!!
In this post we want to share a virtual project, called “Sleuk Rith Institute” this is an incredible project from the amazing architect Zaha Hadid.
This place was created for the purpose to support an integrated community of local, regional and international professionals in a highly innovative facility combining a Museum of History, a Research and National Policy Development Center, and Academy of Genocide, Conflict and Human Rights Studies.
The design embraces the timeless humanitarian values and rich culture of Cambodia while transitioning away from traditional genocide and memorial architecture.
Here is the virtual tour, enjoy it!!
TGIF! [Thank God is Friday!] Hope you´re enjoying this Christmas Season as well as we are!!
For today’s post, we want to share an incredible place that we consider a beautiful piece of natural architecture, the Ayer’s Rock; also known as Uluru.
This incredible place is composed by a sandstone rock formation; it is located in Australia only248mi southeast of Alice Springs; it is considered one of the bigest monoliths in the entire world. It’s dimensions are1141ft high and5mi outline, and something amazing is that this mountain has1mi of depth, that means this mountan is bigger underground than it is on the surface!
William Gosse was the first Westerner explorer to reach the Uluru in 1873. After reaching its peak with his guide, Jamran [who’s Afghan], he renamed it Ayer’s Rock in honor of the Prime Minister of South Australia at that time.
The surface color changes depending on the hour or season; but the color of this place is most known as a brilliant red.
People can think that this is only a piece of rock on earth but when you see the majestic of this place you can feel inspiration.
As a curious fact; in 2014 Prince William and his wife; Kate Middleton recreated Princess Diana and Prince Charles’s moment at Ayer’s Rock in 1983.
Long time no seen; I know it´s been a while since we haven´t posted anything in our blog; but we promise this time we won´t stop!!!
In this post we are excited to talk about the most incredible balcony in the world, it´s the Crystal Balcony located in Jasper National Park in Alberta; Canada.
This place is known for its rocky mountains and fantastic glaciers. The trip starts in the Sunwapta Valley which has 6 stations to board which gives you the opportunities to explore the geological, biological, hydrological ecosystem; also you may learn about the anthropology and the history of this unique place.
The final stop is the Crystal Balcony which is 918ft high and its longitude of 98ft. Here, many visitors have the best view of the famous Athabasca Glacier!! Also people may see different glaciers with their rugged peaks, many waterfalls and the wildlife surrounding it.
The idea of this project is that people may have the opportunity to interact with the entire environment and to make them feel a part of this majestic place; this is possible because of the 360º view you may have in every part of the balcony.
The design is incredible because the structure was created with only steel combined with glass.
This amazing project won an award from the World Architecture Festival; its cost was $21 million dollars; it was worth all that was spent!
We think this is an incredible example that architecture and nature can be combined and together have the capacity to bring us these majestic places.
