Madrid based architecture firm, ÁBATON, take abandoned stable in Extremadura and turn it into a luxurious country home.

If you’re searching for a stunning view of downtown, visit the Toronto Archives and ask for Box 83705.
Within, you’ll find details of a 1929 plan to transform Toronto’s downtown into a slice of Paris, with grand boulevards, wide streets and an architecturally splendid traffic circle.

Hans J. Wegner( 1914-2007) is among the greatest of furniture designers. And he must also have been one of the most productive, since we today can count more than 1000 models. His designs have been described as ‘timeless’, ‘everlasting’, ‘perfect to the fullest extent of what is possible’, and ‘free from passing trends’.
Last week the Museum of Modern Art confirmed plans -- as it expands to the west along 53rd Street in Manhattan -- to demolish the former home of the American Folk Art Museum, a much-praised 13-year old building by New York architects Tod Williams and Billie Tsien.
