The vision of Sri Lankan-based architect and 3D artist Thilina Liyanage, Ocean cabin is (or rather, would be) an oceanfront retreat ‘at the edge of the world’.

Accessed by a stairway wrapped around a massive rock. the cabin itself is an A-Frame supported by stilts featuring a living space with a sleeping mezzanine above. Clearly it’s all about the view and so, true to the axiomatic triplet of real estate, what really matters is location, location, location.


Behold: the Director House (aka, ‘The Director Will Be Here Shortly’) a design by Egyptian architect Mahmoud Sherif.

Looking like Tony Stark’s Scandi hideaway (or a gigantic PS5), this brutalist concrete abode perches on a cliff edge overlooking Reynisfjara beach (you’ll recall it from Game Of Thrones’) on the rugged southern coast of Iceland.

A sci-fi film location waiting to happen, if it ever gets built, which it really should.


Behold: the entirely conceptual Bugatti Hypertruck – a vision of what could (but almost certainly won’t ever) be by designer Prathyush Devadas of Chinese auto firm Dongfeng.

The front of the eight-wheeler adopts the luxury brand’s signature ‘C-line’- with the drivers cab suspended inside. The prow, redolent of a futuristic steam-engine’s cow-catcher signifies progress and utility though, in fairness, none of this really signifies anything.

Still. Cool truck, yeah?


Behold: the BMW Garmisch – an automotive concept designed by the legendary Marcello Gandini, who created the Lamborghini Miura, Countach, Lancia Stratos, and the original BMW 5-series.

Launched at the 1970 Geneva Motor Show, lost for 50 years and always regarded by BMW as a ‘missing link’ in its design history, the vehicle is being re-released in collaboration with Gandini – hand-built in Turin like its predecessor and with the same angular twin kidney grille, square headlights, louvred c-pillar and honeycombed rear window cover.


Behold: the Project Valkyrie Superyacht –  just a concept for now but soon to be the world’s biggest luxury yacht.

Designed by Chulhun Park and Palmer Johnson, the massive 229m trimaran vessel, capable of a nippy 25 knots top speed – will accommodate 52 guests and 92 crew with a casino, theatre, mall, restaurants, and exhibition halls.

Estimated build cost: (drum roll…) €710,000,000.
