This blog is a gimish of things that I've discovered online. It's my personal 'scrapbook' of various things that pique my interest- or that I find amusing.

Just a pool, disguised as a pond, with a trampoline instead of a diving board.
I wrote a paper about these kinds of pools several years ago for a class when they were just prototypes. These pools have a natural filtration system that run based on the plants that are in the pool that give the water nutrients that allow it to not only be crystal clear, but you are also able to drink the water because it becomes so clean. And the best part is that once the initial filtration system is installed and calibrated, it maintains itself and eliminates the need for chlorine or constant maintenance like salt water pools.
Javier Senosiain modeled his home after a shark. Most of the house is in curved underground channels where everything from the toothbrush holder is built into the rounded facade making it possible to have very little furniture. The best part is when the sun sets, & the glowing eyes and mouth of the shark glare across the Mexican landscape.
