Leaf House

There is something I find so exquisitely graceful about trees and leaves.  I’m drawn to them, and I’m drawn to everything that resembles them.  Leaf House is a pavilion for a private residence in northern Sydney, Australia.  A design by the London-based firm…

Museum of the Moving Image

I would say it's easy to grasp how one would design architecture to house human activities, but very difficult, on the other hand, to design architecture that is built to house images.  I think if you take a look at any given movie theater you'll see…
