    Madison House is a curving, one story, single-family residence by New York-based architecture firm Thomas Phifer and Partners.  Located in a wooded area that was formerly a garden for two residences, the home resembles a garden wall.  Built from an assortment of reclaimed bricks, the free-flowing plan represents the clients' simple and uncluttered life.  Four wings with cedar floors and white walls emerge naturally from the sinuous form.  Frameless windows are set forward of the brickwork and finished in mirrored glass that opens the interior to views the surrounding garden, while still maintaining privacy.  Circular skylights are organized informally throughout the home to bring natural light to very particular areas.

    Swiss artist Zimoun has put thousands of packing peanuts (or, "chips," as he refers to them) to work in a mesmerizing installation that's sure to put you in a trance. His newest installation, "36 Ventilators, 4.7m3 Packing Chips," lives inside of the Museo d'Arte di Lugano in Switzerland and depends on 36 fans (which are, of course, continuously blowing) to keep the cycle going.

    Even though you may not have the time (or funds) to make it over to Switzerland to see this one for yourself, an excerpt from the exhibition's catalog does a pretty good job of putting you in the moment:

    Even though the swirling of the polystyrene in the depth of each of the windows is actually limited to that space, we have the impression that the movement is propagating to the whole length of the Limonaia. To the visual effect adds the ticking of chips on the window panes, which could remind a thin but insistent rain. If, instead, we cross the threshold and get inside the space, the perception produced by the ebb and flow of the chips changes radically becoming more abstract; the movement appears mechanical rather than natural, the buzzing of the ventilators covers up the ticking of the polystyrene on the windows and thus reveals the artificial origin of the motion.

    Check out this video of the installation at work:
