A bit obsessed with these images, would like to share them all! ✨ #repost@nasa
Happy Holidays & Merry Christmas! This @nasahubble Space Telescope image of a bipolar star-forming region reminds us of a soaring, celestial snow angel. The outstretched “wings” aren’t snow at all, but are actually twin lobes of super-hot gas that glows blue. Additionally, a ring of dust and gas orbits the star like a belt.
Just admire the space-angel that lies nearly 2,000 light-years from us and appears in a relatively isolated region of the Milky Way galaxy. A massive, young star is responsible for the furious activity we see in the nebula. Hubble's sharp resolution reveals ripples and ridges in the gas as it interacts with the cooler interstellar medium in this February 2011 view. Visible narrow-band filters that isolate the hydrogen gas were combined with near-infrared filters that show structure in the cooler gas and dust.

Inspiration 🌟🌟🌟 #repost@nasa
Shimmering like gems strewn across the sky, this cluster of stars is one of the largest of its kind. 🌟
Messier 2 is a spherical group of stars tightly bound together by gravity. The globular cluster is populated with 150,000 stars and is located 55,000 light-years away in the constellation of Aquarius. It is captured by the one and only @nasahubble.

MAA architectural design approach aims to create dialogue in between nature, technology and architecture. We believe that ‘Nature’ is a wise and profound teacher. We learn from nature and apply what we have learned into architecture by collaborating with technology. Once you discover the unseen logics behind the systems then you can work on multi-disciplinary platforms. Designing projects in different scales and typologies in different countries is developing an important perspective on how you can respond to different social, political and architectural design problems. As the scale of the project grows, our task in between the design and interdisciplinary coordination network expands into a role of an orchestra conductor to achieve the desired result for all parties.
