Hello, Everyone! Today's features Architect, Paolo Soleri, The Prophet in the Desert.  I learned of Mr. Soleri while updating blog links for this blog.  The video trailer is for the documentary The Vision of Paolo Soleri: Prophet in the Desert, and features this great architect's exceptional accomplishments, which began in the '70s, toward his prophetic foresight of today's state of our world. 

This video, also, gives us a glimpse of Paolo Soleri's agelessness; he was still active toward achieving his goal(s) well into his 90s!  Watch him ride his bike!  Like Mr. Soleri, obviously did, I've set my mind to be totally active, ageless and productive well into my 90s and beyond.  Based on what I've seen so far, I think he is another good example of a long, positively-productive life. 

A few interesting facts about Paolo Soleri are:

Hello, Everyone! Today's featured design is a 'Luxury Cabin Estate' by Locati Architects.  Locati specializes in custom home design with focus on architectural and interior design.  I learned of the Locati Architects firm while viewing images of exquisite luxury cabins for sale, online. Now, I admire so much of Locati's design work, that I will be featuring more of it at this blog.

This luxury cabin estate, pictured below, is the Bridger Canyon Residence located in Bozeman, Montana. It is one of the most gorgeous luxury cabins I've seen, online. The cabin was built by Schlauch Bottcher Construction (they do an extraordinary job of taking architectural drawings from rendering to residence; they build dream homes) and photographed by Karl Neumann (his specialty is development/resort projects, advertising, editorial and studio work, as well as commercial and high-end residential photography, as seen below).  Together, these three entities have created exceptional work(s)!
