A madcap proposal for a concrete house inside a cliff went viral last year - and now it's set to be built, thanks to the internet.
Dutch practice OPA designed a home wedged in a mountaintop, topped by an infinity pool that doubles as a skylight for the underground lair, CNN reports.
In the wake of the media interest, a client who wanted to make the concept a reality came forward and the project will now be realized 1,600 meters (5249 feet) above sea level on a cliff in Lebanon.
Ando Vassilou also recommended other emerging architects do the same by promoting their projects online.
"By chasing the viral idea at least you sharpen your skills and strengthen your portfolio with interesting projects," he said.
