Green-Roofed Villa Is Seamlessly Tucked into the French Countryside

If you don’t look too carefully, you could blink and miss Casa Jura, mistaking it for a bump in the hilly landscape of Bois D’amont, France. This is exactly what JDS Architect Firm had in mind when designing the contemporary villa retreat, situated in the secluded countryside. From the outside, this house all but blends into the surrounding mountain landscape, with minimal visual disturbance thanks to a cloaking, wavy grass roof. Despite its seemingly hidden structure, the interior living spaces are surprisingly open and natural light pours in from numerous windows.

The curvy structure even includes a full size glass façade that overlooks a picturesque pine valley below. The 134-square-foot home was built for 200,000 euros. Two deep incisions were cut into the terrain to make space…

STREET ART

This Museum Lets Street Artists Do Whatever They Want On Their Walls. Here Are The Results!

#Street artists are usually ignored and sometimes charged with crimes for choosing the canvas that they do: walls, sidewalks, and other flat surfaces outdoors wanted to change that and shed a little bit of light onto the works of street artists.

They decided to allow artists to use their walls as a blank canvas to show off their work however they see fit.

The project, called Vitality and Verve: Transforming the Urban Landscape, is set to open on June 26th and will display forks from numerous street artists and students of non-traditional art media.

“Most of the works in this exhibition will be created on our gallery walls using both traditional and non-traditional art media,” says Ron Nelson, Executive Director of the Long Beach Museum of Art.

When the exhibition is over, the walls will be painted and opened up to a new series of street artists.

20 Reasons Why Being A Wildlife Photographer Is The Best Job In The World

Standard

  // December 7, 2015 // No Comments

 As fascinating as nature and wildlife photography can be, there are often beautiful and unforgettable things that happen behind the lens as well. Usually, these can only be enjoyed by the photographers themselves, but occasionally, we’re lucky enough to have a second photographer on the scene to capture these special moments. These photos are some of the weirdest, funniest, scariest and most beautiful moments that we’ve ever seen behind the scenes in nature and wildlife photography.wildlife-photographers-1

Extreme Close-Ups Of The Human Eye

An Armenian physics teacher Suren Manvelyan used his friends, colleagues and pupils as models to make these amazing ocular portraits. He never thought he would see anything like that – when viewed really close up our eyes look like some dramatic surfaces of far and unknown planets.

“It is quite natural when you shoot macro shots of insects and plants, but to try to make a picture of the eye? I did not expect these results,” says Suren.

“I was not aware they are of such complicated appearance. Everyday we see hundreds of eyes but do not even suspect they have such beautiful structure, like surfaces of unknown planets.”
