    I like it, but I also recall a comedy program where they profiled the project and interviewed two "residents" who had box-shaped heads...

    Hideous. Like a gigantic pile of rusty front loading washing machines. Cool project though.

    I do think that some of Hayward's photos could have been chosen with greater care, as there are a couple that don't show much, and at least one that doesn't show any architecture at all.

    However, I thought that some of them were nice - examples of buildings that are clearly used by people for work or living, rather than the generally very sterile, museum-like spaces that are often depicted in this thread.

    Don't get me wrong - some of the places that have been posted in this thread are breathtaking, but the vast majority of them look brand new and entirely unused (and I can understand the reason for that, as it makes sense to take photos when the place is first finished) and thus are largely without any sort of context (in my opinion, at least - others may disagree).

    Hayward's photos, whilst rather scattergun-like in approach, at least show buildings in use, surrounded by other buildings, some in states of decay or decrepitude.

    Thank you.

    All these pictures were taken by me personally. They represent the best views that I could come up with of spaces that impressed me in their context. Ultimately, buildings are places where people work, live, play, worship, etc.

    Unfortunately, I never got large-scale view pictures of Zucotti Park during Occupy. Nevertheless, the blue tarp tents are buildings, albeit temporary ones.

    Have you been inside Beth Sholom, Hayward? I'm ambivalent about the exterior, but maybe the interior justifies it.

    I'm afraid not, but it looks like the exterior reflects the interior:

    I have been inside two of Saitowitz' residential projects. He does seem to get the concrete thing right. Though on one of them I noticed the BMR unit had a clear view from the street into the bathroom.
