The material used for this sculptures can be bought from the supermarket or even from the street vendors. What made these sculptures unique is the pain staking method the sculptor went through to achieve very detailed models of object, animals or bust from a very unstable material.
This porcupine sculpture is one of the few models which really amazed me. I could not imagine myself attaching every single one of those spine to the whole model. I simply don't have the patience to do this and I also have very shaky hand. (thanks to my addiction to coffee)
This sculpture of a bear is even more intricate then the previous one. It must have taken the artist a month placing every single piece of fur to the sculpture.
If I were to create a gum art I would most probably pick a very simple subject. It would definitely be an egg or a rock.hehehe This is why I decided to write a post about this art cause I simply admire the creativity and patience of the artist to create such intricate pieces of art.

House HFMA08 was a commission to design a renovation for a dilapidated house. The house was in such bad condition. The structural engineer said the client would be better off building a new house. Despite the problems of the house, I believed there was still a way to restore it to its former glory.
The challenge for this project was to rearrange the spaces to fit the needs of the new owners. I had to change the functions in some areas to meet the desired results. Some partitions had to be moved to improve the sizes of the rooms.
One building with plant-covered walls caught my attention. Patrick Blanc, a botanist, designed and invented the new concept of vertical gardens.
I appreciate how his design enhances the environment and admire his pioneering approach to integrating plants into building structures. His works have become the focal point of the building. Aside from their aesthetic appeal, the vertical gardens have a functional purpose that is beneficial to the users and their surrounding environment.
The vertical gardens help lessen air and noise pollution and reduce heat gain and radiation by creating natural insulation for the building. The vertical gardens also protect the walls from deterioration and vandalizing.
Back when I was still an architecture student, I was always inclined to innovative designs that represent architecture today. I appreciated these designs at an early stage in my studies and I loved to search for unique design solutions for various building types.

One structure I stumbled upon during my research inspired me to think outside the box. It gave me a new perspective on the design if you won't restrict yourself with the norms.
The Jubilee Church is a masterpiece designed by Architect Richard Meier. This church had a unique design that didn't have any resemblance to any typical church. It veered away from the traditional church designs and managed to arrive at a magnificent design that was beautiful and functional.
The design reflected the core beliefs of the church and the beautiful use of natural lights enhanced the ambiance of the interior. The harmony of all the elements is made this church a masterpiece.
Below is an animation made by Robert Angelis that provides an in-depth glimpse of this beautiful masterpiece.
