The houses name ‘18.36.54‘ derives from the 18 planes, 36 points, and 54 lines that makeup the house. The home was designed by Daiel Libeskind, and is situated on 54 acres of open land in western Connecticut, overlooking some of the most beautiful landscapes.

The home was designed with this in mind, featuring an outer shell made from clad in mirror-finish bronzed stainless steel, the homes reflective surface emphasizes the environmental changes as weather, time-of-day, and seasons change. The interior cabinetry, finishes, and built-in furniture are all handcrafted from locally harvested oak planks. These elements, as well as subtle changes in the concrete floors elevation, distinguish the kitchen, living, dining, and sleeping areas without separating them, creating am open space with seamless airflow and scenic views.

This figure, situated on 54 bucolic acres in western Connecticut is clad in mirror-finish bronzed stainless steel and, as such, is never experienced the same way twice. Its reflective luster accentuates and exaggerates environmental changes as weather, time-of-day, and seasons turn around it. The interior finishes, cabinetry, and built-in furniture are custom handcrafted from locally harvested oak planks. Circulation throughout the home is seamless and free-flowing, a theme which carries through in the nearly- nonexistent distinction between inside and outside.

Challenging both traditional and modern notions of “the house in the landscape,” this bold design does not sacrifice itself to its natural setting, but selectively incorporates the elements therein for the enhancement of both house and landscape. (Via Ignant)

Japanese artist motoi yamamoto is one of a kind. With his preferred medium being Salt, Motoi creates these insanely complex and monumental salt labyrinths.

‘there is no set motif in the patterns I draw‘ yamamoto explains, ‘but shapes and forms that can be found in nature such as typhoons, whirling tides, and galaxies are part of my work.’

Two new installations have been completed in salt lake city, utah, encompassing the ground floors at Westminster College and Weber State Univiversity. The giant circles are filled with meticulously place chains of salt, linked to each other within the complex labyrinth.The swirling, hurricane-like pattern is used as a symbol in east asia, representing life and death, resurrection and rebirth and the displays of vitality.

For more information on the process take a look at this video about Return to the Sea. (Via Design Boom)
