"Tokyo Garden and House": An infill between two larger buildings, this 5-story townhouse lets light into the 4 meter-wide site by employing glass walls throughout. Gardens (and curtains) for each room help screen the homeowners from the neighbors, while also providing green relief to an otherwise sterile commercial street. | Design: Ryue Nishizawa, SANAA (2013) Photo: Iwan Baan

The House and Garden Building, Tokyo. Designed by Japanese architect Ryue Nishizawa. The house has no facade and no interior walls. Instead there are floor-to-ceiling windows, curtains and an array of plants that define boundaries between spaces. Private residence. http://www.blessthisstuff.com/stuff/living/living-space/garden-house-tokyo/

Vertical Garden Townhouse (Tokyo/ Japan) This five-storey townhouse by Japanese architect Ryue Nishizawa is a surprising green oasis in the heart of Tokyo. Built on a narrow lot (only 4m wide!) in a dense commercial district, it is a home & workplace for two writers. To avoid narrowing the interior spaces even further, glass walls were preferred to actual walls. Curtains, benches, and planters separate rooms and amenities.

Competition: La Folie architecturale de Richter | Award: First Prize | Project Name: L’Arbre Blanc (The White Tree) | Architects: Sou Fujimoto Architects, Nicolas Laisné Associés, Manal Rachdi Oxo Architects | Location: Montpellier, France | Renderings / Photographs: RSI studio, Manal Rachdi OXO
GipysFish Интернациональная команда архитекторов из японской студии Sou Fujimoto Architect и французских бюро Nicolas Laisné Associés и Manal Rachdi Oxo architects предложила построить в Монпелье, расположенном на юге Франции, многофункциональное здание «Белое дерево» («White Tree»).
The White Tree | Montpellier, France | Sou Fujimoto Architects: The 17-story high-rise dominates the Montpellier skyline, creating a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to soak in the breathtaking expanse with a view of the ocean, the Pic Saint-Loup mountains, the sprawling city and the Lez River below.
White Tree project: Winning team chosen to build 2nd “Architectural Folie of the 21st century” in Montpellier, France. The team -- which includes Sou Fujimoto Architects, Nicolas Laisné Associates, and Manal Rachdi Oxo Architects as the architects -- won the closed competition with their project, "Arbre Blanc" (White Tree), a 10,000 m² mixed-use tower
Sou Fujimoto Architects, along with Nicolas Laisné Associés and OXO Architects, have crafted an imaginative structure named White Tree in Montpellier, France - My Modern Metropolis
Arch2o-L’ Arbre Blanc” (White Tree) Sou Fujimoto Architects, Nicolas Laisne Associates, Manal Rachdi Oxo Architects (5)
Sou Fujimoto Architects - “White Tree (L’Arbre Blanc)” Inspired by the city’s tradition of outdoor living, and the efficient properties of a tree, the mixed-use residential tower will feed off locally available natural resources as it rises 17-stories and connects the new and old districts of Montpellier.

Awesome place to visit. The building is underground. Underground homes are an attractive alternative to traditionally built homes for some house seekers, especially those who are looking to minimize their home's negative impact on the environment. Besides the novelty of living underground, some of the advantages of underground houses include resistance to severe weather, an exceptionally quiet living space, an unobtrusive presence in the surrounding landscape, and a nearly constant interior temperature due to the natural insulating properties of the surrounding earth. The greatest draw for most, however, is the energy efficiency and environmental friendliness of such houses. Because of the stable subsurface temperature of the Earth, heating and cooling costs are often much lower in an underground house than in a comparable above-ground house. When combined with solar design, it is possible to eliminate energy bills entirely. Initial building costs are also often exceptionally low, as underground building is largely subtractive rather than additive, and because the natural materials displaced by the construction can be recycled as building materials. However, underground living does have certain disadvantages, such as the potential for flooding, which in some cases may require special pumping systems to be installed. Underground living has been a feature of fiction, such as the hobbit holes of the Shire as described in the stories of J. R. R. Tolkien and The Underground City by Jules Verne. It is also the preferred mode of housing to communities in such extreme environments as Australia's Coober Pedy, Berber caves as those in Matmâta, Tunisia, and even Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station. Underground living is even being considered for the design of a future base on Mars. Completely underground homes need not be considered impractical or unaesthetic any longer. With today's technologies one can direct natural light into living spaces with light tubes. Virtual windows can provide any view one chooses by the use of cameras or internet cam feeds. Even whole walls can display whatever view one wants someday soon (wall-sized flat screen monitors are still too expensive to be widely used), possibly even with live ambient audio added. Also factories and office buildings would benefit too, for many of the same reasons (noise, energy use, security, community aesthetics, save space; park cars and trucks on top of it instead of next to it, etc.). Often, underground living structures are not entirely underground, typically if they are exposed on one side when built into a hill. This exposure can significantly improve interior lighting, although at the expense of greater exposure to the elements.
