Wiel Arets architects complete the Jellyfish House this winter after 15 years of design and construction. Located in the Spanish Mediterranean coast of Marbella, the all-white concrete house is defined by a swimming pool rooftop that cantilevers toward the amazing Sierra Blanca mountainscape. The pool has an infinity edge and visually merges with the nearby ocean, and has a glass floor that filters light to the home entrance directly below.

Known for their attention to detail, experimental use of materials and an emphasis on tailoring, Stockholm-based fashion house Acne Studios have opened their Korean flagship in the heart of Seoul’s Cheongdam district. Designed by British architect Sophie Hicks, the design celebrates and reflects the clothing brand’s paired-back and refined aesthetics. On the outside, the standalone building is visualized as a restrained and translucent lightbox. Clad fully with polycarbonate panels– emphasizing the soft diffusion of light from within – the scheme exudes a ghostly yet minimalist character and obscures the contrasting layout of the interiors.

It’s an incontrovertible fact of contemporary architecture that Frank Gehry is the most famous architect working today. The Guggenheim Bilbao, Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, and Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris are among the most iconic, singular works of architecture constructed during the last half-century — a point that is duly noted and expanded upon in a retrospective of Gehry’s career that opens this week at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Simply titled “Frank Gehry,” the monographic show runs through March 20, 2016 in the museum’s Resnick Pavilion (which was designed by another titan of contemporary architecture, Renzo Piano).

When asked to build a small house in Bugye, Korea, Seung H-Sang of IROJE Architects & Planners, found himself with the difficult task of embedding an architectural structure within a majestic natural landscape previously untouched. The owner had previously planted five botanical gardens and asked the architect to create a dwelling where he could contemplate and meditate amongst them. It is at the end of these green spaces that Seung H-Sang has constructed ‘Hyunama’, or the black cottage, sitting still in the middle of a forest.

The Pickles & Round House was the first project that Jo and Harry worked on together, and resulted in the formulation of their architecture studio Pickles & Rouse Architects. “We bought this house in 2010 and it has been evolving ever since. This was our first house and design project together, hence the name and establishment of our Architectural firm Pickles & Rouse,” says Jo Lambis. “The house has recently been sold as our family is becoming larger, however the buyers would like to evolve the house further so we will be helping them to achieve this.”
