In the mood for LOVE...

Are you ready?  The time is finally here,

An estimated 2 billion people will be tuning in today to watch the "Royal Wedding" of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Everyone loves a fairytale don't they?
Even more so when its a commoner marrying a prince...

So dreams do really come true :)

In the spirit of the wedding, here are some wonderful wedding photography.

Who would have imagined that this is a funeral chapel!
Situated in Vaantaa, Finland by Helsinki based Avanto Architects.
Chapel of St. Lawrence is a space in the right path with its architecture.

The building is a steel and in-situ concrete construction with a copper roof and slate flooring.

Spaces are extremely serene and it is design with the idea of mourners in mine and being sensitive to the experience that they are going through.

With its carefully selected materials, the chapel is intended to last 200 years.

The Edge...

This house is situated in Sendai, Japan. Completed in 2010 by Japanese firm Appolo Architects and Associates.

It is another wonderful use of off-form concrete with just the right amount of timber and steel, with a courtyard internally to give it enough light punctuation and to give it a light and airy feel.

Spotted... wishbone chair

Designed in the 1950s by Hans J Wegner, the Wishbone chair also known as thr "Y" chair has been in production since and looks like its popularity is getting higher with its new release of 12 new colour for its 60th anniversary in 2010.

Made from natural beech wood and the seat is from woven paper cord. 120 meters in length. Using a steam-bent wood method the chair allows various seationg position, with maximum comfort. Till today, the manufacturer, Carl Hansen and Son still uses the same method of manufacturing the chair as Hans Wegner 60 years ago.

I want one!!!!

The "L HOuse"...

Recently completed by Chilean architect Mathias Klotz, the "L house" in Buenos Aires, offers us a fresh take on the off-form concrete houses which seems to be the favoured material these days.

With just the right mix of wood, glass, steel, travertine, limestone and concrete, this house exudes just the right balance externally and internally.

Though minimal, the house offers many surprising spaces which has its own spatial quality when viewed on its own, seen through the eyes of photographer Roland Halbe.
