When you think of a zen temple you tend to think of the beautiful garden moments that surround the building itself. Left in your mind is not usually a picture of the structure or interior rooms, you are most vividly remembering the viewing moments peering at the garden through the large windows or s
If you are also inspired by the natural architectural style of Le Corbusier and Frank Lloyd Wright it would make sense that you would also be attracted by Czech studio Mjölk’s works as well. Their style is not flashy but blends in wonderfully with the surrounding landscape and each build has

After sharing the work of the late great sculptor Constantin Brancusi yesterday I felt compelled to search out another master if you will that is no longer with us. Given we've featured a good number of names that the history books won't let us forget, I found myself searching over a few that we'd v
