Hidden place. (Like a modern Hobbit's house)
A gorgeous underground home with the goal of concealing a home into the Alpine slopes - I would say they succeeded! An amazing architectural feat | Architects: SeARCH & CMA | Location: Vals, Switzerland | Design: Bjarne Mastenbroek & Christian Müller | Project Year: 2009 | Photographs: Iwan Baan
The Villa Vals, dug into a hillside in the Swiss alps. This must be the adult Hobbit Home of my dreams
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.

Unusual Building by Dennis Oppenheim. This reminds me of the witch's house in the howl's moving castle book
Unusual Building by Dennis Oppenheim. Dennis Oppenheim was an American conceptual artist, performance artist, earth artist, sculptor and photographer. He is Coming out of the conceptual art movement.
Interesting Architecture- looks like an inspiration for a Harry Potter House
"Performance Piece", 2000, Dennis Oppenheim. Performance Piece invites one to consider the fusion of architecture and musical performance. A chimney is turned into a wind instrument, suggesting one could play, or perform it. The cavity of a functional object (chimney) is considered for it's sound producing qualities. In the same way, one could consider, playing or performing a building, by walking through it. Johnson County Community College, Oveland Park, Kansas. Photo: E.G. Schempe

The Viking settlement was hidden until a storm in the late 1800s exposed some of the remains from late Iron Age buildings (bef 800 AD); built in circular fashion around a central hub w/sm rooms & storage areas leading off of it.

The Dwarf-road was the road built by the Dwarves of the Blue Mountains as a trade route to the Elves of Beleriand and Doriath. From the cities of Nogrod and Belegost it passed under the shoulders of Mount Dolmed and then ran westward along the north bank of the River Ascar for many miles, and entered East Beleriand where it crossed the River Gelion at the Ford of Sarn Athrad.

"When you enter a grove peopled with ancient trees, higher than the ordinary, and shutting out the sky with their thickly intertwined branches, do not the stately shadows of the wood, the stillness of the place, and the awful gloom of this doomed cavern then strike you with the presence of a deity?" ∞ Lucius Annaeus Seneca

Arashiyama’s Bamboo Grove in Japan looks like a natural, green cathedral. "Western Kyoto is home to one of the most magical places in all of Japan: the famed bamboo grove in Arashiyama. The visual effect of the seemingly infinite stalks of bamboo is quite different from any forest we’ve ever encountered – there’s a palpable presence to the place that is utterly impossible to capture in pictures, but don’t let that stop you from trying." http://www.lonelyplanet.com/japan/kansai/kyoto

Fern Forest, Jamaica? I am still flabbergasted to have seen this repinned so much these past few weeks with captions like, "Natural Wonders" or "Need To Go" etc. This is rather awful gimp photo splicing. But we see what we want to believe and ignorance is bliss and our human imaginations ultimately build beauty in the world as a choice of perception. :)

Went to this park as a child, its one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen! "The grove of 'candelabra' redwoods, known as the Enchanted Forest, is one of the primary reasons San Francisco's Save the Redwoods League purchased the spectacular 957-acre piece of coastline known as Shady Dell, where the gnarled old trees live." A-mazing!
- On a steep hillside along the spectacularly rugged Mendocino County coast, is an 11-acre grove of ancient redwood trees with twisted trunks and branches that shoot out wildly in all directions as if frozen in the middle of a conniption fit. The grove of "candelabra" redwoods, known as the Enchanted Forest, is one of the primary reasons San Francisco's Save the Redwoods League purchased the spectacular 957-acre piece of coastline known as Shady Dell, where the gnarled old trees live. Complex transactionThe acquisition, completed Oct. 27 and announced today, is part of a complex transaction designed to preserve 50,635 acres of redwood forest in a remote coastal area north of Fort Bragg where environmental activists and loggers once battled over the fate of California's stands of timber. Timber sales will help the foundation pay for interpretive programs and environmental improvements and assist local communities and American Indian tribes. The clear-cutting began in earnest after World War II, when mechanized equipment was brought in, according to Art Harwood, a former logging company owner in the area. Pristine natural wonders Only Shady Dell includes a beach, but there is no question that the wind-twisted trees of the Enchanted Forest are the most spectacular and pristine natural wonders in the newly formed preserve. The thick, sprawling branches create habitat for bats, mammals such as red tree voles, spotted owls and a wide variety of birds.

The Magical Skaftafell Ice Cave - Iceland - Located within Iceland’s own Skaftafell National Park, the whimsical crystal cave is the result of centuries old ice coming down the slopes of Öræfajökull.
Svínafellsjökull glacier in Skaftafell, Iceland The blue Crystal Cave ice cave is illuminated by the evening sun in Svinafellsjokull in Skaftafell, Iceland. Created by the forces of the Vatnajokull ice cap in the south of the volcanic island, the deep blue cave was formed by the glacier meeting the coastline. The centuries-old ice that has come from the slopes of 6,921 feet tall Oaefajokull, Iceland's tallest active volcano, has compressed all air out of the ice adding to the texture and colour of the cave.... cave is accessible through a 22 foot entrance on the shoreline in Skaftafell national park.
