Designer Athanasia Psaraki, of Archivirus Architecture and Design, was tasked with creating a “skateable habitat” and she did just that, erecting ramps and bowls for nearly every structural element, rather than just walls and columns. Shaun White, I think we’ve found the architect for your dream home. More pics at AR Plus.
