*sigh. I'm in love.
Diamond House is a house extension designed by XTEN Architecture as a patterned and perforated lantern illuminating a California canyon. It is located against a sloping hillside, with minimal access and little space upon which to build. (via arplus/notcot)

this is pretty fun. i'd love to hear it!
Who needs turntables when you have cardboard? GGRP Sound has come up with a brilliant way to play records: with the record sleeve. The needle-embedded carboard package folds up to hold a 45rpm in place, making sound while you spin it with a pencil. Instead of outputting to a speaker, the vibrations go through the needle and into the cardboard, and the sound quality is not bad, from what we've heard anyway.

an octagonal structure made entirely out of books!
...installed in the Modern Art Center in Lisboa. Slovakian artist Matej Kren built an octagonal framework, filled it with books and removed it, leaving a symmetrical, enclosed room of stacked literature.
