When you think of fashion FENDI often comes to mind, and we can now say the same about real estate. Just when we thought the fashion house had done it all, it launched a new collection none of us were expecting – FENDI Château Residences. The waterfront apartments were designed in partnership with luxury developer Château Group. The 58 upscale residences will go on sale in 2016 with a price range of $5 million to $22 million.

Cement, wood, metal. Typical materials that are incorporated into buildings, right? Another one to add to that list is salt. Believe it or not, builders have been using salt (aka sodium chloride) for centuries to create structures that range from hotels and flats to mosques and churches. Some of these salt buildings are “lickable” so make sure to visit your first edible building!

As we walk along hectic city streets, rarely do we ever look up at the skyscrapers around us. French artist Thomas Lamadieu, however, has a keen eye for strange and interesting shapes formed by buildings in the sky. He sees these pockets of sky as opportunities for art and lets his imagination roam free. See more “sky art” here!

With so many buildings throughout New York, it’s impossible to identify them all. James Gulliver Hancock took it upon himself to draw a those buildings, all compiled in his book, All The Buildings In New York: That I’ve Drawn So Far. Hancock is an Australian illustrator who found the architecture in New York to be very intriguing when he first moved to the city. As he attempts to draw all the buildings in New York, he records them on his blog, All The Buildings In New York.

For those who have always dreamed of walking on water, Sprenger Von Der Lippe’s Houseboat is a dream come true. Situated on the Eilbek Canal, this floating home contains a myriad of windows, a bottom level with bedrooms just at the water’s surface and a top deck where the kitchen and living room provide great views of surrounding areas.

Moby on Strange and Beautiful LA Architecture

He lives — literally — in a castle in the sky. It is a sprawling structure, with a gatehouse turret, nestled under the Hollywood sign, high in the hills of Beachwood Canyon. It has a speakeasy in the basement, and the Rolling Stones once lived there.

It’s a new way of life for Moby, who spent decades in a one-bedroom apartment in the Lower East Side — with his recording studio in his bedroom and his bedroom in his closet. And yet, as it turns out, the musician is something of an architecture buff — captivated by the landscapes of urban geography. For the past year, Moby has been documenting the wild and beautiful ways of LA architecture on his blog, Moby Los Angeles Architecture. We asked him what makes LA architecture so baffling and unique.

Remember when you were a little kid and you got bored so you built an entire full-scale arcade out of cardboard? Yeah, neither do we. Props to Caine.
