The Underwater Sculpture Park is the work of sculptor Jason Taylor from England, who has a passion for creating fantastic and unique pieces of work depicting Grenada’s colourful history and folklore and placing them underwater. All of the sculptures are in beautiful clear shallow water easily accessible by divers and snorkelers. The sculptures end up creating artificial reefs, and enhancing the marine environment.

The response from visitors diving the site has been reported as nothing short of amazement and fascination on the whole concept. “the artist’s interventions promote hope and recovery, and underline our need to understand and protect the natural world.”

The American artist Gordon Matta-Clark (1943-78), who trained as an architect, used the urban environment and more specifically buildings as material. He arranged empty premises by, among other things, cutting out fragments. With his interventions he transformed architecture into sculpture, he exposed the soul of a building: to convert a place into a state of mind.

Imagine how much money you could save, if you made an office completely  out cardboard. Impossible; I hear you say. But these images say otherwise. Yes, it is possible and it even looks really cool.

I believe it would be a perfect option for all companies that want to show their care for the nature, and the headquarters of save the nature activists. This, light and fully recyclable office, looks good and perfectly functional. The only thing you need to worry about is your employees bringing a lighter to work. I would buy a good supply of fire extinguishers along with it icon smile in Recycable Office   Made Completely Of Cardboard
