Ferrari has officially taken the wraps off of its newest California-model cruiser, the Ferrari California T gran tourer. This two-door hard-top convertible bears a pretty exclusive badge from Ferrari, as the California series represents some of the most exciting Ferrari models from the new T version back to the late 50s “Ferris Bueller” edition.

The design concept for this cupcake bakery in Taipei is much like the design of the classic cupcake itself: a rigid, plain shell in which is held all the sweet ingredients. J.C. Architecture designed the cup of Les Bébés Cupcakery with the simple outline of a child’s drawing, faced with a huge window punctured by an equally simply shaped window box display and an imposing door, both seemingly floating, leading inside.

KOOK Osteria & Pizzeria (VIA CASSIA 2040, 00123 Olgiata, Lazio, Italy) opened its doors just outside Rome’s Olgiata in 2012, with the great dynamic duo known as design and food behind the helm. The young architectural firm Noses Architects founded by Mohamed Keilani and Luca Gasparini put their best foot forward to create a space that compliments the essence of the dishes while at the same time retaining that overboard-Italian character.

The SkyHouse takes a century-old skyscraper and turns its upper floors into a playful residential dream

Ferrari has taken the wraps off of its new flagship heading into the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, the new Ferrari LaFerrari. The LaFerrari supplants the Ferrari Enzo as the new prince amongst prancing ponies, a hybrid-powered supercar capable of breakneck acceleration and 200+ top speeds. A 949 combined horsepower hybrid system is the heartbeat of the Ferrari LaFerrari, with a mated 6.3-liter V12 engine and a 160-hp electric motor. That power will push the LaFerrari past 62 mph in less than three seconds as it screams toward 205 mph at its peak.
