Coqui Coqui..

Ok people ... This is my idea of a hotel..

the Coqui Coqui Hotel and Spa in Tulum Mexico... (forget about the swine flu for a second and just take what I'm about to show you into consideration)

if that doesnt convince you then read this ...

"Coqui Coqui is a unique and romantic little resort located on a long stretch of beautiful beach that's away from the more crowded center of Tulum, and definitely aimed at those looking for peace and quiet. The resort cleverly balances a mix of rustic beach charm with refined elegance.

The hotel is built of traditional Mayan stone and has a very different feel to the beach cabana style resorts which are so typical of this area.

With just seven rooms the resort never feels busy or crowded. Each room features local Mexican fabrics and materials with design accents that have been influenced from as far away as Asia and Europe. Art and craftwork from around the world are also evident throughout.

The resort has a small restaurant that's open for breakfast and by prior reservation for lunch. And if you fancy a change, you'll find a good selection of restaurants just a short stroll down the beach.

Coqui Coqui is one of the few resorts in Tulum offering full spa services, from massages and facials to wonderful spa rituals.

This is a fabulous destination for those looking for a romantic and relaxing escape. The design and focus of the hotel has couples in mind, but this would also be an excellent choice for a romantic wedding or small group of friends who could rent out the resort in its entirety."


and right now during the low season rooms go from as low as $230 a night .. and go up to about $300

not to shabby .. for such awesomeness..

I really enjoy Jim Lambie.. I have quite the admiration for his work.. and I actually really enjoy his blog ... Photoboy

he recently had an exhibition titled 'Unknown Pleasures' at the Hara Museum of Contemporary Art ... where he showed his Found Flower Series (which in my opinion is really nice)

He also showed other works such as the 'Train in Vain' composed of wooden chairs, handbags, mirrors, gloss paint, dimensions variable...

Air Forest

Air Forest by Mass Studies from ArchDaily on Vimeo.

OK.. how cool is this ..

The Air Forest was a temporary pavilion in Denver during the Democratic National Convention in '08...

'Air Forest is a 56.3m long, 25m wide pneumatic structure, composed of 9 hexagonal canopy units, at 4m height. These units are interconnected as one large piece of fabric, which are then inflated from the 14 blowers that are located at the base inside its 35 columns. These columns are 5m apart, and are weighed down by dirt and lighting elements which are also inside the columns, which light up at night and provide a public space after dark as well. 6 each of these pneumatic columns form a unit as they are connected in a hexagonal manner creating a circular opening from their inside perimeter. Out of the 9 total hexagonal units formed, 3 of them are left open-air while the remaining 6 have vortex-shaped meshes that hang from them, providing shades for the public from the harsh sunlight. The nylon fabric is coated with a gradient of silver dots, whose reflective surface mimics the colors of its surrounding environment, as well as providing a playful dotted shadow on the people under the structure.'

How cool is that...
