    Regarding #2: "Some readers have speculated that it’s popularity is due to the lady in red"

    Of course it is about the woman in red. She is freakin' hot! :)

    • Onkatinka

      Totally agree with you Zenza… she is sizzling hot!!!

  • so eclectic ! the lighting in all of these is really something and yeah it probably was the red dress girl that sold the first one – but really that lighting is JUST COOL

  • Azeem

    All of the above are excellent works, Keep em posting Dezeen!!

  • Is Kanye’s apartment west facing?

  • jake

    #1 is just magnificent

  • edward

    Just a casual perusal seems to show the projects with the largest # of hits to be the oldest. I would assume that when a project fell off the front page, hits would decline sharply. I wonder what this ranking really says. I didn’t think the first 2 projects were all that great.
