Top 100 Architecture Ideas in October

From Striking Marble Apartments to Super Slim Condominiums

— October 26, 2014 — Autos
The top October 2014 architecture ideas are as creative as ever. With the population continuing to increase at an exponential rate, designers and architects are exploring different ways to accommodate so many people while also remaining respectful to the environment. On one end of the spectrum is a super slim condo that doesn't take up too much space in the neighborhood but manages to provide a roomy abode for residents.

Yet on the other end are experimental houses that focus on atypical structures, materials and more. One of the homes featured in this collection of October 2014 architecture ideas is made entirely out of concrete and takes happens to resemble the form of an AT-AT Walker from Star Wars.
