With all the advances and all the technology and art that go into architecture, you'd think there'd be nothing new to get excited about. The Kensington Lighthouse, located in Melbourne, Australia, proves that innovation is still part of modern architecture.

The design of the Kensington Lighthouse (not actually a lighthouse) is particularly innovative because it had to fit a long and narrow land plot. Like usual, constraints bred creativity, and the product is inspiring, beautiful, and sexy.

Implications - The Kensington Lighthouse, created by Tandem Design Studio, is made from two sunshells and the connecting courtyard is lined with timber.
