Tula house in Quadra Island, British Columbia, Canada, is an example of modern architecture blending in a harsh natural surroundings.
Envisioned by Patkau Architects and perched 44 feet above the Pacific Ocean on a remote island, it reflects the casual irregularity of the sites rock ledges, beach, and forest in both its geometric and spatial order: “The topography of the site is highly irregular; the prospects diverse. Moss covered basalt hills are interspersed among treed expanses and richly vegetated crevices, valleys and swales.”
From a distance, the residence seems to visually fade away into the dark forest. Planted in moss and native ground covers, the continuous roof stands out with its rich geometry. Narrow skylights project lines of light at oblique angles through the inner spaces. “A loose arrangement of concrete walls, clad in staggered fiber-cement panels” define the structure of this unconventional ocean dwelling. A cantilevered wooden deck with steel frames creates a stunning outdoor area for relaxation. The living zone is sober, yet almost hypnotizing with its glazed apertures and incredible views.

Moshe Safdie is famous for his iconic Montreal housing complex Habitat ’67, and he is still creating innovative large-scale urban projects around the world. The latest project his firm, Safdie Architects, has debuted is the design for development at Singapore's Changi Airport. The scheme aims to create a public gathering space with gardens, retail stores, hotel, restaurants, and entertainment that will lure travelers, airport employees, and local residents.
The glass dome will encompass a space of 134,000 square meters and houses a 130-foot-high waterfall. The dome's curved shape, recalling the tradition of glass conservatories, provides inherent structural strength to the glass and steel structure. Tree-like structural columns in a ring support the dome while a suspended roof covers the adjacent atrium space.
The space also showcases natural elements: walking trails travel through an indoor topography of trees, palms, and ferns called "Forest Valley". The different elements — dining, accommodations, and retail — are spread throughout the structure so as to give each of them impressive views of the natural features.
