I do like it... though I'm a Russian history buff, so I do look at these with some bias.

Pretty cool. It's so hard to find to find good architecture videos. I love the little side story of talking to the Yakuza head.

I went to Rem's speech on Milstein and it was pretty funny. After 20 mins. of the Q&A session Rem goes "pls, can we now have some positive comments only"

I figure this is the thread for random architecture questions, so here goes. Why is siding so popular? Is it just a cheap way to weatherproof a house? It seems both decorative and protection, but can't the house's walls just be made weatherproof? I was struck today by the fact that I don't know why it's on so many houses.

Yes, wood, composite, metal, etc. siding/cladding is an inexpensive way to weather-proof framed exterior walls.

Exterior cladding depends on the structure/framing of the building. A wood- or steel-framed building requires some form of exterior cladding (some type of siding or plaster over panels, typically) that a concrete, masonry, etc. wall structure does not (although those wall types may also use exterior cladding for further protection or decorative purposes).

Q: What's the perfect house for a summertime underage drinking party? A: This.
post #1061 of 3574
It's a great house, though I like the outdoor aspect more than anything else. Or was the post a chuckle at the immaturity of it, or something like that? Either way, I love the indoor/outdoor/pool as one thing going on.

The house is great. The materials are incredible. They've just put some tacky crap inside it. Like those staggered picture frames. :vomit:
