DAILY PHOTO – TIME TRAVELING IN THE STEAMPUNK SUBWAY This incredible subway station under Paris has undergone a full Steampunk conversion, thanks to the mind of François Schuiten, a comic book artist from Belgium. Each tiny circular window lining the edges is a portal to another world.
"Located in the forest, close to Ubud, Bali-Indonesia, is the breathtaking Panchoran Retreat. It is inspired by nature, creating environments it is difficult to distinguish the interior from exterior. Only recycled or sustainable materials were used to create this haven. This private hideaway has 6 houses scattered amongst nature with magical views of the valley and bamboo forest."
Sheets of unframed glass fill the spaces between the building’s operable windows and the sloping eave of the roof, giving the house, as architect Alan Organschi puts it, “the feel of coming apart at the seams—of surfaces unhinged.”
