The Most Beautiful and Famous Trees on Earth “A tree is a wonderful living organism which gives shelter, food, warmth and protection to all living things. It even gives shade to those who wield an axe to cut it down” – Buddha. There are probably hundreds of majestic and magnificent trees in the world – of these, some are particularly special: Lone Cypress in Monterey This River in Colombia Turns Bright Red Each Year The river shown in the photographs below is Caño Cristales, an amazingly colorful river in Colombia. The river takes on many different colors, including yellow, green, blue, black, but especially red, caused by the weeds at the bottom of the river (Macarenia clavigera). The river is commonly called “The River of Five Colors”, “The Liquid Rainbow” “The River That Ran Away to Paradise”, and “The Most Beautiful River in the World” due to its striking colors. This is what Caño Cristales looks like with its beautiful red color. Looks like something straight out of The Bible. Interestingly, for most of the year the river is actually indistinguishable from any other river.

2020 Vision: Floor-to-Ceiling & Wall-to-Wall Glass House From Mies van der Rohe to Phillip Johnson, even the most minimalist modernists never took the ‘see-through box’ concept quite this far in the 20th Century – an entirely transparent house plan with see-through floors, ceilings, interior and exterior walls on every side both inside and out. It took a contemporary x-ray visionary to see the extreme possibilities in this simple home design idea. Decorated with retro-modern furniture classics, the spaces are all but invisibly defined – save for a few bookcases, beds, sofas and and smaller furnishings that pay tribute to modern design as well as some specific designers of times passed. In the absence of opaque surfaces, these stand out more than ever. Conceived as being constructed from ‘ultra-clear’ glass, this visionary design by the Italian group Santambrogio is not so unrealistic.

Modern Pyramid House by Juan Carlos Ramos We've seen our fair share of unique modern home designs like the box-shaped metallic house or the abstract fortress made of concrete, but Mexican architect Juan Carlos Ramos has taken on a form less-visited for his aptly titled project Pyramid House—a conceptual pyramid-shaped home created and submitted as a proposal for a recent architecture competition. The simple geometric shape creates a clean aesthetic, while remaining extremely eye-catching due to its iconic though rarely applied form. Some highlights of this design are the multiple windows cut out of the four large triangular facades that allow natural light into the home. An enormous window covers one entire side of the structure that visually exposes and lightens the design. Viewers also get to see inside the modern multi-level interior which features a library, balcony, two bedrooms, and even a recording studio that have all been cleverly sectioned to fit inside this unconventional concept.
