Architecture to Inspire

Here are a few out-of-this world but REAL projects I am most excited about at the moment:


Heerim Architects designed Full Moon for Baku, Azerbaijan


The Cloud designed by Nadim Karam


Manned Cloud is a flying hotel proposed by French designer Jean-Marie Massaud

And while the above buildings stand a chance of getting built soon, here is fantasy building for my home, NYC:

It’s called The Dragonfly and would be an urban vertical farm on Roosevelt island. This is designed by Belgian architect, Vincent Callebaut.


It would be 132 floors and 600 vertical meters, be able to accommodate 28 agricultural fields for the production of fruit, vegetables, grains, meat and dairy. It would be ran from solar and wind power.
