Head to a small suburb in Melbourne, Australia called Fitzroy North and try and figure out which house has a secret. Though not apparent from the street, an Edwardian-style house has a cloud-shaped addition in the back that’s as pretty as can be. McBride Charles Ryan Architect created an extruded undulating wall that, in cross-section, resembles the shape of a cloud. Designed by McBride Charles Ryan, the house has a bright red kitchen at the heart of the property that bridges the house’s two major spaces. Look inside the cloud and you’ll notice that the walls merge seamlessly with the floor and ceiling. Love that when it’s lit up, the cloud looks like it’s glowing!
Jencks’ latest project is in northern England and is called Northumberlandia (the “Goddess of the North”). Commissioned by a UK coal-mining company, Jencks is creating to a giant land goddess sculpture that’s 112 feet high and 1,300 feet long. Due for completion in 2013, it will be the world’s largest human form sculpted into the landscape.
