Top Design Destinations

Its that time of year again where many of us are planning our summer holidays. After scouring through the pages of budget travel and the likes,over the last couple of days, I have decided to embarking on a design destination instead. The world is full of inspiring destinations for travellers wanting to discover the creativity which has shaped many countries throughout he globe. From scuba diving in an amazing underwater art installation in Mexico to staying at a modern designer hotel that towers over NYC’s iconic High Line park to meandering the world’s largest wooden structure recently designed and constructed in Seville.
Below is my list of the top design destination around the world well worth a visit this summer.

Scuba divers in Mexico have always had much to delight in. The colorful marine life, mammals, fish and foliage are top on any divers list at any time of year. However, off the coast of Cancún there is a little more than fish and foliage to see.
"The Silent Evolution" is a unique must-see underwater art installation by Jason deCaires Taylor, consisting of more than 400 pieces in it.


Parc Guell is an architectural garden complex situated on the hill of El Carmel in the Gràcia district of Barcelona, Spain. It was designed by the architect Antoni Gaudí and built in the years 1900 to 1914. It is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site "Works of Antoni Gaudí".

The Las Pozas sculpture garden is a Surrealist fantasy that lies hidden near Xilitla, Mexico. Constructed in 1962 by English poet,artist and patron of the Surrealist Movement Edward James.
