Look ma, no walls!

Where can I find more pictures of houses "without" walls like the ones in this link? Also, it would be awesome if I could get some names of architects that share a similar style.

Hidden Rooms and 'Dead' Spaces: help me find more pictures of this sort of thing!

I've recently become fascinated by (a) long-forgotten "hidden" rooms in houses and other buildings and (b) "dead space" in houses, e.g., large unfinished areas behind walls that are only perhaps discovered years later. Help me find more examples of this sort of thing -- preferably examples with pictures! [more inside]

Coral Castle

Ok, I saw a post here in the past year or so about some strange house a guy built. I believe it was in Florida and has something to do with mystery spots or the like. What I remember is that to this day no one can understand how he built it as some of the doors are 5 ton boulders that swing open with the slightest touch. Google search is coming up blank. Anybody remember the post?

Methodology behind traditonal japanese house proportions

I am working on a house project and feel it would benefit from the quietness and openness I've seen in traditional japanese houses. I understand that their proportions were based on the size of tatamis, both in plan and in section. Does anybody know where I can see a graphic explanation / example of this? A good online collection of traditional japanese interiors and gardens would be much welcome as well. [more inside]
