The graffiti is a nice touch.

Insert obvious Darth joke here. I really like the atrium space, and how everything seems to open up towards it.

The Rookery in Chicago is another non-residential work by FLW:

I'm sure all of you have seen the bird's nest by now, but most of you probably haven't seen herzog & de meuron's other fine works:

prada aoyama, tokyo


40 bond st, nyc (not really that great by their standards, I just think this ornamental detail is cool)


de young museum, san fran



hospital pharmacie, basel


signal box, basel


not the most photogenic architecture mostly because of their emphasis on materiality and detailed facades but if anyone's seen any of their work in person, please share your experience (I wanna know!)

Saarinen's terminal at Dulles Airport, Virginia:












Also of note just up the airport access road is the interesting Gannett/USA Today headquarters:



Few places manage to be as warm and as comforting as Dulles. I've had the pleasure of driving into it a couple times and every time I get excited not just to fly, but to walk inside!

Just to clarify, the Rookery is a Burnham building, the lobby as pictured is a FLW remodel

How about another house, because that's what the thread was supposed to be about

I certainly agree with this, it is my favorite airport to visit. However I have also heard from others that they dislike all the concrete, I don't think it would be the same without it.

House in Phoenix:

Meh. This doesn't look like a fun place to live. I'm trying to imagine sitting in the living room in my pyjamas on a Sunday morning and reading the paper. Can't see it. But maybe that isn't the point of the place.
