Portugal is home to artist Janet Echelman's 'She Changes', a 160-foot-tall waterfront netted wind sculpture suspended above a 3-lane highway roundabout, which received the IFAI International Achievement Award and the Public Art Network's Year in Review Award. It is a monumental, red and white, membrane-like sculpture at the Praca Cidade San Salvador in the town of Matosinhos along the shoreline outside of Porto.

Through her art, Janet Echelman reshapes urban airspace with monumental public sculptures that respond to environmental forces including wind, water, and sunlight. "I am a sculptor who shapes urban space. I prefer the immediacy and challenge of transforming sites that are either unnoticed infrastructure that have faded from public memory, or iconic landmarks that are so overexposed they become habitual background."

Amazing kitchens! I am having marble in my next kitchen, without a doubt. Why is it every house in Houston seems to have dark wood cabinets and granite (including mine)? I'm so over that look, but Houston is way behind the kitchen design curve. None of my neighbours can fathom a white kitchen with white marble. I just don't get it!
