Sky Planter

I love these Boskke Sky Planters by Patrick Morris – they remind me of the upside down trees outside the Mass Moca in Massachusetts (at the bottom).

Such a great, simple idea!

More on Highpoint

Yes – it’s worth two posts!

There is too much to cover in a hasty blog post – but enjoy these images of the penthouse in Highpoint II – Highpoint I‘s post-war neighbour.

I lurve it.

Images by Morley von Sternberg and Andreas Von Einsiedel (with watermarks).
