    Royal Street looking south from St. Francis in Mobile, Alabama, circa 1910. Detroit Publishing Company via Shorpy Historical Photo Archive. Check out the full size image; the details are fascinating. I’ve included a few below.

    Just hanging out. Literally.

     

    Love this guy—so casual.

     

    Lovely architectural detail.

     

    Klosky’s! Probably referring to Klosky’s Hotel.

    La Balade des Gnomes is a fantastical Belgian b&b designed and built by architect and hotelier Mr Noël in Belgium. The rooms are located in a farmhouse, with a Trojan Horse suite nearby. You’ll need to lower the drawbridge to gain access to that horse.
Sleep in a boat floating in a pool with the stars above—on the third foor of the farmhouse. Or in a wine cellar with vines, barrels and wine press furniture. Or on a spaceship in a lunar landscape. My personal favorite is the trolls habitat, with a goldfish filled stream running through.

    Choi + Shine Architects designed these giant figures out of electrical pylons. The architects claim they require only minor alterations to existing pylon design. They consist of a few major assembled parts and a series of pre-assembled joints, which can be used to create different configurations.
Just imagine… You’re driving along an Icelandic highway. “Wow”, you think, “I really dig those things. They’re so much more interesting than those old boring… Hey! Wait a minute… Wasn’t that one kneeling before?”
