Buqshan hotel in Khaila - Yemen (by Eric Lafforgue)

Buqshan hotel in Khaila - Yemen. This hotel is definitely and example of hypermediacy within the media of architecture. This hotel doesn't disappear into the society it is in, it forces the audience to look at it and realize it is there. The architect makes us aware of all the windows, doors, and colors within this building.
Khaila Hotel Yemen, how cool would it be to see this place! Fantastic architecture.

Domed dog house. dream. wouldn't mind 'sleeping in the dog house'
Awesomely fantastic outdoor greenhouse cabin
The Big Sur Greenhouse (Architect: Micky Muennig): The “Greenhouse”, was built right into the hillside and includes star-gazing ceilings, an outdoor deck with bath, a fully operational kitchen, and a reclaimed redwood platform bed that hangs from the ceiling by steel rods. The single room dwelling was inspired by the 1970's Dome Home, and the nature surrounding. A minimalist vision on the inside, for a fantastically rich cliff side view.
