Do you remember being taken on holiday by your parents? They promised it'd be fun, they swore you could go shopping, they said it'd be beautiful. You arrived there only to grow slowly more frustrated at their constant presence. This particular personal experience of mine must be why architects UdA created the "Fun House." Located in Juan-les-Pins, France, this sea-facing apartment is divided into separate rooms for all the kids to enjoy. The bedrooms were built inside the living room, with makeshift walls of colorful slats. This allows for a new generation of traveling children to finally be able to slide into privacy and away from their crazy shell-collecting dads.
With the state of higher education being what it is these days - enormous loans and graduating in bad economy, vague degrees and their questionable necessity, peer pressure to fit in with your generation - oh my god, forget I said anything, this is a building made of cubes. The Tietgen Student Hall in Copenhagen, Denmark is a circular platform for fun, frolics and intelligent living, set to inspire the youths of today to study, socialize and spy on the girl across the circle.
