In order to understand any project takes a bit of self introspection. Since architecture is a somewhat subjective art, you can't expect someone to understand it if that person can't also internalize it. One of the first thinks I look to when I observe a project is the title. A title…Continue

Environmental house appears when human beings appear, just as a man named BRAIN has said (not original remarks), when man first walked the earth, they lived in cave and underground houses which provided safety.

Today I surfed on a forum and saw a topic like this "Can anyone point a name of a famous architect known for his work with cool concepts?" The architect I first thought of is Zaha Hadid.

I wrote an article a while back titled Every Architect Needs A Hero, which is one of my favorite topics to theorize about. It's not a terribly new idea. I would say it's fairly dated,…Continue
