Astley Castle - Winner RIBA Stirling Prize 2013 - Astley, Royaume-Uni - 2012 - Witherford Watson Mann Architects
Contemporary house by Witherford Watson Mann behind the walls of the ruined Astley Castle in Warwickshire, England, nominated for the Stirling Prize.
A contemporary house inserted behind the crumbling walls of a ruined twelfth-century castle in Warwickshire, England, by Witherford Watson Mann is one of the six projects nominated for the 2013 Stirling Prize. The mediaeval Astley Castle was once the home of an aristocratic English family, but has stood as a ruin since the 1970s, when a devastating fire wiped out the hotel that occupied the building at that time.

Flying Mud Boat, a tea house that seems to hover in mid-air, is another surreal creation by Japanese architect Terunobu Fujimori.
Flying Mud Boat, a tea house that seems to hover in mid-air, is another surreal creation by Japanese architect Terunobu Fujimori (images by Kazumasa Onishi). The tiny home is suspended from tension cables strung between two wooden supports, and can only be accessed by ladder.
Could this beautiful hanging tree house by Terunobu Fujimori be a model for future tiny houses in Japan? Inspired by nature, the mud structure dangles from tension cables between two wooden supports and is only accessible by ladder. Small and impractical as this particular one may be, suspended structures absorb shock well in the event of an earthquake and would be well out of the way of possible tsunamis.

RockHouse: San Juan Islands, Washington
The Pierre Rock House, San Juan Islands - Quite literally nestled inside the rocks near the shore of one of Washington State’s San Juan Islands, The Pierre (literally, French for stone) was inspired by owner Merrill White’s desire to live atop a stone outcropping. Architect Tom Kundig of the Olson Kundig architectural firm went one better, and rather than seating the home about a rock outcropping, he dynamited into the rock itself to create a stone seat overlooking the sea. Depending on your point of view, the home completely disappears into the landscape, and much of what is ...
