A bridge that’s a carpark that’s also a park

A bridge that’s a carpark that’s also a park

A carpark that’s also a park that’s also the bridge that’s also the carpark and park. Confused? You definitely are because architecture-ception just happened. With an upsurge in tourism arrivals in Moena, Italy, architect Angelo Salomone of AS-DOES had the problem of building a park, a carpark, and a bridge, all the while trying to not destroy Mother Nature too much.

The solution was to build the three structures on top of each other, so that they would have minimal impact on the lush mountainside environment around it. Visitors can use the bridge to get across or park their cars and go out to the park on top of it to enjoy the bike paths and the beautiful view. It’s a great example of how good design can save the world, taking into account all stakeholders: the visitors, the entrepreneurs, and the environment.

You can read more about the project specs here.

Balloon Rooms

Balloon Rooms 650x520 Balloon Rooms
The simplest inventions can make life so much more interesting. What do you think when you hear the word “balloon”? I am sure we all remember back to a time in our childhood when we were inhaling the helium from balloons to make our voices squeaky. And we can not forget all of those new balloon animal pets that we got at the local fair, the circus, or at birthday parties for those who had parents cool enough to get a clown to show up.

But, how many of us could ever imagine using a balloon to fill up an entire room, transforming the look of it? I know I have seen some huge balloons in the past, but this really takes the grand prize. Penique Productions, an artist collective from Barcelona, Spain that was founded in the year 2007, using gigantic plastic balloons to completely change the look of any room.
