Wilhelmshöhe Castle (formerly Karlsberg) was built in 1696. It occupies an entire hillside in the city of Kassel, Germany. The crown of the hill is the gigantic 'grotto' topped by the sculpture of Hercules, situated almost 300 m. above the foot of the garden.

Wilhelmshöhe (formerly Karlsberg) was begun by Landgraf Karl in 1696. It is a enormous expanse of baroque terrassing and cascades, occupying an entire hillside in the city of Kassel. The garden was modeled after the Italian Renaissance Gardens of Rome. Karl employed Italian architects (Giovanni Francesco Guerniero) and hydro-engineers to create spectacular water features similar to the Villas d'Este, Lante or Aldobrandini. The crown of the hill is a gigantic grotto.

Studio Gang Architects | Aqua Tower. Aqua Tower is one of few high-rises in the world that creates a community on its façade. With a hotel, apartments, condominiums, parking, offices, and one of Chicago’s largest green roofs, this multi-use tower demonstrates both architectural and technical achievements.
Aqua Tower, Studio Gang Architects, Chicago. Recently having received a MacArthur Fellowship partially for her work on this project, Jeanne Gang has created a new addition to the Chicago skyline that masterfully speaks to man's relationship to nature. At its base, the Aqua Tower fills out the block with a two story retail plinth, on top of which sits one of the largest green roofs in the city. This is shaped as an urban park for the residents and guests of the building, the use of which i...

Strange Hotels and Guest Houses - Das Park Hotel, Linz, Austria Do you wan to stay in sewage pipes ? thankfully, clean and functional and sit on the banks of the Danube, making them a perfect post-industrial bolt hole. Read more: http://blog.99mustsee.com/strange-hotels-guest-houses/#ixzz2L4DvWuNz
**This was pinned earlier as a guest room hotel place, not sure it would be good for a storm shelter!!** Now all you have to do is to make sure your two "shelters" are waterproof, dig a hole about 12 feet deep, and lower them into the ground so that you have an underground bunker network. You already have a hole at the top of your "shelters" that can be used for ventilation. The result: storm proof, waterproof, and relatively tamper proof underground bunkers.
If you ever find yourself traveling near Ottensheim, Austria, (located in Upper Austria just seven miles from Linz on the Danube River) in need of a place to rest your head, the Das Park Hotel offers an affordable night’s rest so long as you don’t mind sleeping in a former sewer pipe. Neat Ideas

Energitårnet in Roskilde, Denmark. Energy Tower is designed by Erick van Egeraat. This carbon-neutral thermal power plant burns waste and the energy produced is equal to 125,000 tonnes of coal a year. Efficient engineering and a visual landmark.
The Danish town of Roskilde, about 30-km west of Copenhagen, has recently opened a new, unlikely landmark – an incineration energy plant. Designed by Erick van Egeraat, the plant’s striking façade comes to life at night.

HANDS Corporation Headquarters, Seoul, South Korea by The System Lab
Across the river from Seoul’s supposedly glamourous Gangnam district, the dense city spreads out as a network of busy, congested boulevards, elevated freeways and buildings with little architectural merit. The new Hands Corporation Headquarters – realised by The System Lab – is a relatively small-scale office building that not only brings a fluid expression to the streetscape but also provides its users with a more stimulating workspace.
