    One of the more interesting installations I have done was at a Peter Gluck designed residence in Lake George, NY. Click on the Inverted Outbuilding tab on this page:

    Yes, the siding is solid copper, and it did cost a fortune.

    That Idaho home was great.

    I'm mixed on the Greek Revival revival. I like the original style a lot, and can sympathize with the architect/owner's dilemma--existing Greek Revival farmhouses in NY are generally in poor condition and require an almost complete rebuild. But the "faux-timey" part is annoying.

    I think this property is beautiful but I'm definitely a swissophile.

    Does anyone have any pictures of beautiful universities that they'd like to share? I'm at UOttawa and this brutalism/concrete slab thing is getting on my nerves.

    The interior of this recently-built Greek Revival in the Hudson Valley will make Matt vomit. [​IMG]

    This is stomach turning, can't someone buy one of those and trash it to make their macMansions instead of the nice ones?

    That's pretty much what our library looks like, except more concrete and less open spaces.

    Glencairn, a "castle" in Bryn Athyn, PA. Fascinating building.

    what's the point of building a castle when it's so obviously not defensible?

    That reminds me of the California house in the last season of Mad Men.

    I was lucky enough to visit Case Study #22 when my wife was in grad school for architecture at UCLA. Loved it.

    What is the purpose of this building? Looks almost like a hangar for small aircraft.
