Standing tall at almost 13 inches as it is based on MJ’s official height of 6’6’’, this limited edition model is from the toymaker’s Real Masterpiece collection – a range of accurately depicted, lifelike figurines that focuses on some of the most recognizable faces in the world. Taking us back a decade or three, this “museum-like representation of Jordan” features his iconic red Chicago Bulls uniform accompanied by three of his famous signature sneaker models: the Air II; Air Jordan X “Steel Grey”; and Air Jordan XI “Concord.” [See & Read More]

The Winged House is a remarkably triangular private residence located on the tropical island of Singapore. Its architectural frame features two adjacent trapeziums on a triangulated plot of land. These embracing forms open towards lush greenery at the back of the site, at the same time carving out a cozy private garden in the middle.
