Photo credit: Sean McGrath It’s the middle of a blistering hot summer in the United States, so taking a dip in the cool water of an infinity pool sounds heavenly. The design of infinity edge pools are visually stunning, as the swimming pool appears like the edge vanished and the pool stretches into the horizon or to infinity. The design concept of infinity pools originated in France, but the very expensive vanishing edge swimming pools are usually found nowadays in gorgeous locations like exotic resorts or exclusive estates. Some of the most stunning infinity pools are situated on a cliff, or on a hillside next to green foliage, or stretching out as if to meet with the sea. .

Blog Archive & Holman House by Durbach Block Jaggers

Above photo is by Brett Boardman The curved forms of the kitchen and living room, which project over the sea supported by four angled stilts, are derived from the torso of Picasso's The Bather. Above photo is by Anthony Browell The two-storey Holman House was completed atop the 70 metre-high cliff at Dover Heights back in 2004. Stone walls surround bedrooms on the ground floor, which nestle against the rock face. Terraces surrounding the house at different levels provide two patios, a top floor garden and a lower level swimming pool. This project is the third Australian house published on Dezeen in the last week, following one residence with an oversailing glass roof and another that incorporates cantilevering concrete slabs - see all our stories about projects in Australia here. Photography is by Peter Bennetts, apart from where otherwise stated. Here's some more information from the architects: Astronomy Picture of the Day Archive.

Before I Die & Candy Chang

After losing someone she loved and falling into depression, Chang created this experiment on an abandoned house in her neighborhood to create an anonymous place to help restore perspective and share intimately with her neighbors while remaining an introvert. Meant as a singular experiment, the project gained global attention and thanks to passionate people around the world, over 500 Before I Die walls have been created in over 70 countries, including Kazakhstan, Iraq, Haiti, China, Ukraine, Portugal, Japan, Denmark, Argentina, and South Africa.

The Before I Die book is a celebration of these walls and the stories behind them. Follow the latest Before I Die walls and responses on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. 2011, New Orleans, LA.
