Dealing with Garbage
Anytime you’re crafting some sort of building, be it residential or commercial, you are going to deal with some debris.

How To Create SVG Files Part I
First you will need a high quality image that you can work with. Either by tracing it, or by converting it into shapes and paths. To do that, you can use Illustrator or Inkscape. In this example we will use Illustrator, as it’s one of my favorite pieces of software ever developed by adobe.
To get your image, a royalty free one I mean, go to: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/images/ . That’s where I’ve got my snowboarder from. I then import it into Illustrator, by dragging and dropping the image in.
There are many different kinds of ‘house pride’ and often it can emerge in ways that you wouldn’t expect. My girlfriend is house proud for instance in the way that you usually think of – she likes to keep the home tidy, she loves having guests round, and she gets a real kick out of a new throw for the sofa or a new set of champagne glasses.
Me though? I’m house proud sure, but I don’t really have any interest in frilly things like throws or champagne glasses. No, what I like to show off when people come around is my widescreen TV, my computer, my desk and the range of useless gadgets and features I’ve installed into the home. It’s the little gadgets that I really get a kick from and I find that my male friends tend to be more impressed by these than the lack of dust on the kitchen counters.

1.Hotel Marques de Riscal, Spain
It is a design of Frank Gehry, one of most successful architects of America. The building aimed to attract more tourists in the region. However, instead of matching the surroundings, Gehry’s building stands out as something truly unique. Not only is the exterior one-of-a-kind, but also all rooms are different than one another, guaranteeing a unique experience. The building is made out of concrete cubical elements and is covered with enormous stainless titanium panels, whose positioning basically makes no sense.
