Here are several optical illusions for the eye. Found the pictures all around the internet.

The Hermann grid illusion. Dark spots appearing and disappearing speedily at the intersections.

Same colour illusion. Square A is exactly the same color as Square B. Here’s proof.

The Revolving Circles Illusion. The two circles seem to move when the viewer’s head is moving forwards and backwards while looking at the black dot.

Wind Shaped Architecture

5,907 views

Imagine a building where occupants are able to choose their view. Let's narrow our imaginations down to a building of 6 floors where each floor is rotatable. Imagine it by the seaside where each occupant in each floor is given the choice to rotate their side of the view.

Well, here's the proposal of an internationally known designer, Michael Jantzen. The Wind Shaped Pavilion. His current project is made up of large fabric and it's section position is randomly rotated by the wind. It's not only cool in design but it is also useful. It's rotation generates electricity for illumination during the night. Cool! I've taken a few samples from the original website

Here's all 6 units in symmetrical order.

 And this is what happens when the wind blows.
