Just for reference, this is the new BIG project 8-tallet in Copenhagen (one the left)

Nevermind. It looks like Nouvel took his tower to Sydney

That's one of my "concerns" if they aren't deep enough or haven't been made properly, the concerete will be destroyed by the roots.

Valerio Olgiati
Atelier Bardill
Scharans, Switzerland
2007

Quote:
The Atelierhouse Bardill replaces an old barn in the protected centre of the village Scharans. The building permission was granted by the local authorities only under the condition that the new building would have exactly the same volume as the old barn. The client, musician Linard Bardill, who lives in a house a very short walking distance away from the site, needed only one single space, a room to work in. This working space occupies not even a third of the stipulated volume. The rest of it constitutes a courtyard that is monumentalized by a huge round opening to the sky. This is where the house expresses greatness and clearness in contrast to the arbitrary geometry of its external appearance and to the small-scale environment of the village.

New renderings and video of the San Francisco MoMA expansion from Snohetta. Kind of exciting, but it feels a little clumsy in the details and materiality. A section would be nice.

Are those the Burghers of Calais? That statue always ends up next to some modern building and it ends up looking like a bunch of poor peasants bemoaning the state of modernity.

It's Rush Hour by George Segal, so yes, they're bemoaning something.

The luminosity of the KC museum is very appealing.

That kitchen counter/outdoor table deal is inspiring.
