If you're going to live by the sea, you should live like a high-rolling sailor with a penchant for fancy futuristic architecture. That's the idea behind the aerodynamically-shaped hotel, 10 apartment towers, and 2.4-hectare "Aqua Park" that will comprise Regatta, the new lux complex on the Java Sea coast in Jakarta, Indonesia.

When completed sometime in the next few years, it will feature buildings named after other lux port cities like Dubai, Monte Carlo, Miami, Tokyo, Acapulco, Sidney, and Rio de Janeiro.

I'd have to say that the architecture posts are my favorite part of this site. You guys ever think about spinning off an architecture blog, with info on the environmental advances and other cool technology that goes into these buildings/bridges/etc?
