195 Melbourne Street

While I think this is a beautiful project by Tridente Architects, the one element that stands out to me is the wooden thermal screen.  This is a technique that is seldom used in the United States. We tend to put screens on the inside of the house,…

Toys for Architects

Bloxes are corrugated cardboard building blocks – “blocks” + “boxes” = “bloxes.”  They’re really strong, lightweight, and naturally dampen sound.  They come in packs of 20 pre-cut cardboard pieces, each…

De Beers Ginza Building

In the vein of my previous post I'd like to reinforce the importance of simplicity. In the words of my professor, it's often counterproductive to reinvent the wheel. Take what you know and add a little flare to it. This project by Jun Mitsui & Associates Architects is a great…

A Concrete Playhouse

Not surprisingly, the slide in this home (from the child’s bedroom into the kitchen) is what initially caught my attention.  What has kept my attention is the challenge created by the material of choice: concrete.  Playhouse, by the architecture firm…

Salvador Dalí Museum

Context in architecture has lost some momentum in recent years. It's a discussion that for some, has just gone on too long. Yet I believe that you can't do away with it completely. This project by HOK, the Salvador Dali Museum, is an…

Sunrise Mountain Library

Over the years I've often wondered exactly how much a material it takes to make you feel that you're inside something. Architects often feel that unless we're totally enclosed by the architecture then we're not really inside. This library by…

Sunset Community Centre

True to it's name, the Sunset Community Centre by Bing Thom Architects becomes most dynamic when approaching the evening. This architecture plays with light as it enters the building from all different directions. The wavy form of the structure…

Bridging Tea House

When I used to commute, I would often get caught in traffic. I don't know of any other condition that generates such angst within the human soul more than traffic. I would curse both the people currently causing the traffic as well as those who designed…
