I believe the purchase price was $1. My nephew proceeded to dismantle the house, wainscot by architrave, brick by numbered brick; a vacant block near the river has been purchased, and following the pouring of new footings, re-erection of the entire dwelling is about to commence this month.

 

Curiously, the purchased land is part of a site on which used to sit the brickworks from which said house's bricks originated. The house is coming home, as it were.

 

Placing an old building inside a new building is not a uniquely North American phenomenon. Here is the heritage-listed Coop's Shot Tower, now found entirely inside Melbourne Central shopping centre:

And while we're on the subject of moving heritage buildings, here's the Shanghai Concert Hall. To accommodate the construction of the elevated road visible in this photo, the entire concert hall was moved some 66 metres south, en bloc. They dug under it, constructed some kind of foundation and tracks, and slowly and carefully trundled the entire thing into its new position, millimetre by painstaking millimetre. An extraordinary feat.

Shanghai Concert Hall being moved

 

I'm in the rather singular position of having performed on its stage, both before and after the move.

In Sweden we are actually moving a whole city: https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/architecture-design-blog/2014/oct/22/kiruna-sweden-town-moved-east-iron-ore-mine

 

As can be read in the article, the move is by necessity and nothing else. Admittedly most of the city will actually not move, instead people will move into a new city built nearby. But there are a number of culturally important buildings that will be moved, including this church which is one of the most famous churches in Sweden.

1979 - Australian Youth Orchestra

2010-13 - Shanghai Baroque Chamber Orchestra

 

I know that the interest in period instruments is growing also in many Asian countries. Is Shanghai Baroque a HIP ensemble?

Not sure what HIP stands for. SBCO aren't really a dedicated baroque orchestra, it's just a name. They are completely private, without government support or major benefactors - an extraordinary feat in China - and play whatever gigs they can get.

 

I didn't get the impression that "authentic performance practice" was much of a thing in China while I was there. Hopefully that's changing, if slowly.

Nice photo. You need to check that weed. That doesn't look like corn, especially not in this time of year smile.gif

Oh, and I don't think that tie belongs in the countryside, but that could be just me.

I agree that a different tie would be better especially with that pocket square.  I think the tie could work with a different pocket square.  I think the tie is fine in the country in as much as a suit is fine in the country.

I think it's barley or maybe wheat? But i'm not an expert and the photo was taken a few weeks ago.

If it's Bavaria (did you mention once you're from Bavaria?), it's probably barley. Wheat should be gone by now, I think.
Nice that it's Europe. In 'Murica you'd get shot for taking pictures in other man's property wink.gif
