Green Limousine

In the cities, the car’s insatiable appetite for space crowds out bikes and pedestrians. Today’s cities where every corner is invaded by cars, can you imagine any road sides not full of parked car rows leaving no gateways to padestrians? You could not, could you!

Auditorium & Congress Palace Infanta Doña Elena

I grew up near the beaches of southern California and remember sifting through all the stones on the shore and in the water. I would always look for the prettiest stone, one that looked apart from the rest. This project by Estudio Barozzi Veiga reminds me of those unique and beautiful…

I studied the classical orders in college just like every young architect, and I'm sure like many others, I found it a little monotonous. The one aspect of classical architecture that I still find very refreshing is the skill and craft required to bring them to…

I remember cutting out topographical models as a student. I really hated it. It seemed like so much work for so little benefit. Looking back on those crude models I realized how useful they really were. Even if they didn't look so great, I was forced to intimately understand the characteristics of…
