Indonesian architect Yoka Sara designed the Kayu Aga house in Canggu, Bali. Built for an Italian businessman named Alberto Agazzi, the layout of the house consists of a garage and three orthogonal sleeping pavillions or platforms, each with a private garden. Occupying the center is a two-story pavillon containing the primary living/dining facilities. The house also has an elevated studio at the first floor and a verdant roof garden.
Ironically, the natural swimming pool is one of the few elements of the house that's not curvaceous -- but it's spectacular! More images at HomeTrendDesign.com. Tip via VV.
Curvy vs Skinny | Always Wrong?
Vogue Italia keeps up the heat on the body image debate, closing in on core AOC arguments. Anne has tried for years to shift the argument away from anorexia and fashion monasticism or curvy women who are also real women onto the larger topic of a cultural need to control women's bodies.
At AOC we tell women's stories from fashion to flogging for a reason. At the core of modern civilization is the need to control women's bodies for several patriarchal reasons largely revolving around sexuality, paternity and inheritance.
Anne believes that modern civilization post monotheism has a general disgust for curves -- translated women. We understand the Reubens time period and other passions for curvy women. But monotheism is totally devoid of positive respect for female physicality. We also subscribe to Ernest Becker's philosophy that the female body reminds men of their mortality and perhaps the womb's original power over them -- the devouring monster metaphor.
