Today’s link roundup is all about the architectural designs of visionaries the world over, all working to inspire us and usher us into the future.
First, a Dutch studio called MVRDV shares its award-winning design for the China Comic and Animation Museum (above), scheduled to break ground this year in Hangzhou, China, and the fine folks of Urban Peek gives us a preview.
Next, Europe celebrates its tallest completed building: The Shard, located in London, opened to great fanfare earlier this week, as reported by World Architecture News.
…and last but not least — remember Kinko’s? Its founder, Paul Orfalea, has listed his 2,000-acre Grizzly Creek Ranch at the northern edge of Yellowstone National Park. According to Curbed, it’s up for a cool $25 million… unfortunately, we’re pretty sure he isn’t accepting any Xeroxed checks for it.
