Sky, light…and a little bit of Architecture

Such a long time from my last post! After the moving experience, it has been very hard to go back on track. But here I am with a dreamlike house designed by  Inês Vieira da Silva y Miguel Vieira (SAMI Arquitectos). Enjoy the peace that flows all over these images.

Architecture House design

Simply loving Japan

 

House of Trough by Jun Igarashi Architects in Kato-gun, Hokkaido, Japan. Colors, volumes, light and empty space are all focused inward. And the interiors are really, really stunning and refined. The contrast with the surrounding buildings underlines the peaceful and dreamlike interior space. It’s hard to imagine something closer to poetry.

Dreams in the sand

Kolmanskop is a ghost town in the Namib Desert in southern Namibia abandoned around 55 years ago. It used to be a thriving town of just over 1,000 people, most of them contract workers.

About

About the blog:

I first started this blog on Facebook, received a great response and decided I needed something more. I wanted a way to convey what inspires me in both life and work. ‘Poetic Glance’ is a visual attempt to explore the fine line that separates human interaction with the fixed environment, both natural and man-made.  This is an open window toward a poetic vision of life through the lens of Architecture, Photography, Design and Beauty.
