leave a comment »

Architects Garrison Partners designed the recently completed Jeju Provincial Art Museum in Jon-Dong, South Korea. Situated on Jeju Island the beauty of the landscape accentuates the building surrounded by a pool of water. Made from local stone, the simplicity and naturalness blend perfectly with the environment.

The exterior is designed in a cube form and the exhibition space  follows a circular pattern. Inspired by these simple forms it is a work of art itself.

The museum program consists of not only exhibitions but also includes research, conservation and education. read more

The Tafoni Floating Home

with 2 comments

 The Tafoni Floating Home, designed by Joanna Borek-Clement inspired by smooth, oval pebbles on the Califoornia coastline, is one of the many houseboats in the Sausolito area. Much more spacious with large partitioned rooms and high ceilings, it makes for a more comfortable living space than most.

Ms Borek-Clement points out that, “Houseboats, as opposed to traditional homes, have no foundations that permanently impact the land. They  can be  moved from one dock to another to allow the shaded land underneath them to recover.”

 Joanna Borek-Clement ,   educated in Poland, She lives and works in San Francisco, CA. Her design ideas focus on new methods of sustainability and creating Interiors, Architecture and Art that promote and develop these concepts. read more
