The Pontiac Silverdome has housed some incredibly large and historic events, but yet today it’s stands empty & unused.

So, McClean Design is the firm behind this amazing place in Beverly Hills. They are known for designing famous DJ, Avicii’s house as well. This particular job was a remodel of an existing home that was designed in the 1970s. I’d say they did a top-notch job.
Well, Dr. Dre is wasting no time spending his Apple cash. The man with the plan has bought Tom Brady & Gisele Bundchen’s chateau in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles. The price? Just a cool $40 million. The home has a moat that’s filled with Koi fish, and it’s very own chicken coop.
Coca-Cola continues to make headlines with the unveiling of their new headquarters in London. The stunning offices were designed by architect Linda Morey-Smith. The Coca-Cola brand is apparent throughout the space. Vintage machines, neon signs, glass bottle lamps, and hand-painted ads can be found almost everywhere you look. The workspace also features tons of creative and communal space that has become commonplace in modern offices. Employees also have access to as much Coca-Cola as they can drink. Take a closer look below.
This is an absolutely amazing house, so it’s pretty crazy than I can’t stop thinking about that garage. So dope.

In 1980 an earthquake measuring 6.89 on the richter scale wreaked havoc on the Irpinia region in Southern Italy. Many of the villages and buildings were destroyed during the quake. Although the area has a long history, it has been abandoned since it was evacuated. Most of the remaining structures, including the churches and chapels, have been looted for whatever goods were left. Photographers Jorge Mañes Rubio and Gianluca Tesauro decided to travel to the Irpinia region in order to capture the abandoned buildings in a new photography series entitled “Buona Fortuna”. The series of images provides a cool look back into the region’s past. Hopefully the area is rebuilt at some point.
