Sometimes you want a room with a view. Sometimes you want a bunker that’s walled-off to the world. Why not have both? The Sharifi-ha House can shape-shift based on the amount of sun or level of privacy that its residents need at that particular moment. Designed by the Iranian architects at next office, this seven-floor home in Tehran is engineered to be as flexible as possible, with three volumes that swing out towards the street.” w/ photos

The Nardò Ring is a 7.7 miles long high speed circular test track located in a remote area on the heel of Italy’s ‘boot,’ 31 miles east of the naval port of Taranto. The Ring is named after the urban center of Nardò, situated 22 kilometers to the southeast. The Ring was originally built by Fiat in 1975 and is currently owned by the German car manufacturer Porsche, although the facilities have always been open to all automotive manufacturers right from the start. And thanks to the unique rain-free South Italian climate, the track operates 363 days per year, on three shifts, seven days a week.” w/ photos
