Eric Standley, a Virginia-based artist who works with laser-cut paper, creates amazing and awe-inspiring layered paper cuts of extraordinary complexity that successfully marry Gothic and Islamic architectural elements in tiny cathedral-like spaces.
A photo I took in the lovely old town of Saarburg in Germany, where there is a waterfall in the middle of the pedestrian area.
Strange Marine Creature
This strange creature was filmed underwater by drillers in the deep ocean. It is unknown what the creature is exactly, but theories about the mysterious animal range from a jellyfish to an unknown marine version of the Loch Ness monster to a whale placenta. It looks like an underwater dementor.

Architects CMA and SeARCH were focusing on the question if it would be possible to conceal a house in an Alpine slope while still exploiting the wonderful views and allowing light to enter the building when planing the Villa Vals. They decided to build a central patio into the steep incline to create a large facade with considerable potential for window openings. The viewing angle from the building is slightly inclined, giving a dramatic view of the beautiful mountains on the opposite side of the narrow valley.
