Casa Once Mujeres by Architect Mathias Klots

The first thing that attracted me to this article was the name, Casa Once Mujeres, “House of Eleven Women” it’s a pretty catchy name. The owners of the house are a divorced couple, combined the couple has eleven children, all women.

The house is located on a side hill in Zapallar, Chile built in 2007 by architect Mathias Klots. The house has amazing vistas to the Pacific Ocean as well as open and airy interior spaces.

"Dream BIG" by Peter Fecteau & some History

The “Dream Big” installation was a yearlong project in which artist Pete Fecteau combined 4,242 Rubik’s Cubes to create the image of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.   
No question, Rubik’s Cubes are fascinating objects that mix lots of patience and a touch of genius. I haven't been able to go beyond two rows of the same color but did you know that the Rubik’s Cube was invented by Hungarian sculptor and professor of architecture Erno Rubik in 1974? Pretty cool, I’m sure Mr. Rubik would love Pete Fecteau “Dream Big”. Enjoy!
