Slow Food Nation

Often the most interesting designs are not something new, but something old viewed through a new light. A familiar point of reference is often the best way to help others understand architecture.  This information booth for the Slow Food Nation event is a wonderful example…

Fogo Island Studio

If you've ever worked in a design studio before, you know that given enough time, it begins to consume you. This is true of almost anything. The mind begins to forget that there's a world outside your obsessions. Designers (myself included) tend to fit this mold. We get passionately…

Kona Residence

I can't speak for all architects, but I find myself drawn to the more impractical architecture in the world. Buildings designed less to fill a utilitarian need and more for the sake of self-actualization. I would almost say that this project by Belzberg Architects is…

O-14 Tower Dubai

While I believe the main purpose of a tower is to be tall, I must admit that building facades for these types of structures are in dire need of some imagination and creativity. What makes this facade by Reiser + Umemoto Architecture particularly interesting is that it dispenses with the vertical…

Hanoi Museum

This brilliant museum makes a not-so-subtle point that every architect needs to confront at some point. Sometimes you just need to flip architecture on it's head to make sense of it. While this project by GMP Architekten is the most literal iteration of…

Bangalore International Convention Centre

I think there are many out there that think of architecture like a compartment. We hear a lot of this in terms of planning and use, but I would also argue that we think of architecture itself as compartmentalized. Each architecture is a box separated distinctly from…

Henning Larsen Architects Umeå School Of Architecture

I had a professor one time that would joke with students running into the classroom at the bell for a pinup that their projects still had wet pixels. It seems as though this project, the Umeå School Of Architecture by Henning Larsen Architects, is more proof…

How To Train Your Architecture

An athletic stadium is a very peculiar architecture. It's design is aimed at focusing all attention to a single point within the structure. The Berlin Olympic Stadium by GMP Architekten truly makes one feel that the event is the…

The Arboreal Exedra (Esedre Arboree) at Victorian in Rome: admirable work semi-forgotten



The Pines of Rome, the landscape of Rome. In 1924 Respighi dedicated his symphony to this Mediterranean species which is identified with the landscape of Rome. The pine trees are an invention, however, a landscape design. The pines have always been here in our capital? Absolutely not, Rome and his campaign have been covered by meadows bare dedicated to goats for at least a millennium. The… Continue
