Take The Initiative and Create Your Own Projects - Smashing Magazine Advertisement During my last job with a large corporation, people started to get laid off.

Outside In: Ultimate Underground Swiss Mountain Home Cavernous but wide open, dark and heavy but bright and spacious, this incredible underound house is the ultimate expression of architectural opposites fused into a single spectacular earthen living structure buried in the mountainous ground of the Swiss Alps.
