The language used to describe their project is so ridiculous. It's a very elaborate way of saying that the clients wanted something 'designer-ish'.

I dunno. I could live in a place like this. For maybe a week. But SH will most likely spend most of his professional life working on projects like this.

Not likely, I expect he would do quite the opposite. Someone with confidence in their own aesthetic, with strong feelings about it, is likely to communicate that to their client or turn the client down.

That also has its appeal, many people do not want to hire an architect who will take on every job. They may admire one who will communicate preference and stand fast for their beliefs.

How old are you?

 

 

Here, here's another one.

Can you imagine coming home to this? It's like a Thomas Kinkade painting, except the house is kinda modern. 

 

I especially like the bath:

 

 

I guarantee you that at least one member of the couple who commissioned this house has fake boobs. If SH ever wants to settle down similarly, he's going to have to design a lot of houses like this.

And your reason for asking?

Also, from the sound of it SH works on commercial projects, which is where most people who want to make a living in architecture end up.

Right. And the fact that you spend most of this thread reminding us of that in the most obnoxious and supercilious manner indicates to me that you are doing just that.

 

When some noob recently necro'd CConne's original post, I decided to scan through the whole thread. My finding is that it was more interesting before SH decided to assert himself as resident expert. The butthurt war with LabelKing was especially telling, Especially if you read it along with SH's trolling of foo's apartment thread. 

 

In any case, it is what it is. The future.

Maybe I'm just betraying my ignorance of the field, but I'm not sure I know what this means - except on the level of a meaningless platitude. Obviously, choices about the exterior of the building can effect the livability of the interior. But if we are talking about external shapes and materials like that wing, we're generally talking about choices that are 95% (I made that number up, obviously, but you get the idea) aesthetics and 5% function. (Assuming other considerations like cost, structural stability, etc. are constants.) Your statement almost seems to suggest that design elements that don't make life more convenient or comfortable for the residents in a concrete way should be eschewed, but I don't know that you actually mean that. At the very least, many people do consider aesthetics to be a meaningful factor in whether or not they find a home comfortable or pleasing.

Either Hayward leaves teh Styleforumz or I leave teh Styleforumz. Discuss it among yourselves and let me know what decision you come to. As long as he's still poasting, I'm not.
post #2741 of 3571
I don't care much who does or doesn't post, but if one of you decides to leave can you please go out in a blaze of raving spleen? I always find it entertaining when people do that.
