Did you hear about the cave house for sale on Ebay? It may be almost as good as living in a secret tunnel. Maybe.
Just in case you've never heard of the Sedlec Ossuary in the Czech Republic, aka the Chapel of Bones, I thought I'd post these links. And a warning - when I say bones, I don't mean Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz getting zany.
I've seen this Prayer Chapel in Phoenix by debartolo architects in a few places and I've gone back and forth on what I think. I saw it recently on arch daily here and in Faith & Form, where it was given an IFRAA* award (online here. While I posted what I think is the nicest photo (of course - I'm an architect - I like things to look good!), in the end the project just leaves me cold.
