Garden House | Tokyo

This breathtaking work of architecture was named the House and Garden building, it is in Tokyo and was designed by visionary Japanese architect Ryue Nishizawa. The building is an unusual sight in Tokyo and believe it or not, it is a private residence! The house has no facade and no interior walls, instead, there are floor-to-ceiling windows, curtains and an array of plants that define boundaries between spaces. The four-story house is only 26ft x 13ft and is wedged between two taller buildings. The unique home also features a spiral steel staircase running up the whole building and connecting each level. The Architect says: "You really get the fell of living in a hanging garden". source

The coolers on the market have to deal with several problems, the hard coolers, though effective, are not portable at all, they´re bulky and not easy to carry along. The soft ones, though portable, are not at all effective, they leak and don´t insulate well enough. The IceMule cooler is the first high-performa...
