A Belgium events-planning firm, optimistically called Fun Group, has designed a restaurant – or board meeting, or conference room, or work-desk – in the sky. It’s a space, it’s a thrill-ride, it’s a spectacle – it’s 7,900 euros for 8 hours. (That link is a PDF).

Buildings that incorporate helicopters. The airplane as architectural extension into the stratosphere. More gondolas.
