Klimcentrum Bjoeks in Groningen, Netherlands sports the world’s tallest climbing wall at just over 121 feet tall. Here’s a cool photo gallery of how it was built, section by section. My dad would see this and say, “Eh, I’ve seen bigger.” Photos above by Eric Kieboom. (via presurfer)
Salvaged Landscape is the result of a collaboration between artist Catie Newell and the non-profit Imagination Station that is working to reclaim blighted areas around Detroit. Catie transformed a building that was victim to arson into a new, potentially viable space. It sounds as though once they obtain more funding the remaining charred building will be torn down around Catie’s structure and a new building could be erected to incorporate it. (via core77)

Several bizarrely striking structures by Michael Greaves, photographed by Swiss photographer Mario Del Curto in Quebec.
About the objects he assembles, he has written, “I very much liked and observed old objects, used objects, objects worn down by the force of time and human history. I am a being that has served, been transformed, an object that wants to be understood and enlightened, and that likes to be used.” He has also built cabins and houses out of wood. Defying the laws of gravity and perspective, they resemble houses of cards on the brink of crumbling and create points of view that border on the fantastic.
