Billion Dollar Building Is Bad Luck

Billionaire Mukesh Ambani should have never built the 27-storey Antilla as his residence in Mumbai, since now due to a lack of enough eastern facing windows, the tower has “fallen foul of vastu shastra – an obscure Hindu version of feng shui.” Would hate to be the architect.

Kingdom Tower

Designed by AS+GG, the $1.2 billion, 3,280 feet + skyscraper will be the tallest in the world once complete. I’d be more impressed if they built 1000 meters down where all the riches are. It would be called an “Earthscraper” and would hold the title of ‘World’s Deepest Building.” Core’s The Limit!

Morning Dose of Sasha Grey

Richard Phillips builds upon his previous Lindsay Lohan film portrait with one of Sasha Grey. The building where it takes place is the Chemosphere off Mulholland Drive designed by John Lautner. Benedikt Taschen now owns the residence.

“For my film portrait of Sasha Grey, I wanted to focus on her expressive and psychological transformation into a cinematic actor, separate from the cues that have associated Sasha with her previous career as a performance artist working within the adult film world.”

–Richard Phillips
