    LOve this house. WHats this style called? any other examples like that (im sure theres tons but still)

    Will this look dated in years for example?


    I like the concept, which is mid-century modern (look up modern houses in SoCal, especially Palm Springs and architects like Pierre Koenig and Richard Neutra), and won't look dated, but the execution and detaiiing, especially on the inside, is over the top, and will be dated. I also wonder if that's the same Gullwing that I've seen rolling around town occasionally.

    In other news, Broad has officially decided on downtown LA for his art museum, with DS+R designing it:

    Good luck figuring out. Former Soviet satellites are knee deep in that shit. I'd google "Ukraine Brutalism" or "Soviet power station" or other terms like like that and filter for black and white photos. You might get lucky.

    Nice. Where did you find that pic of the last place you posted? The haunted looking place.

    In a bizarre turn of events, Phillipe Starck has done something really tasteful and modest.

    It looks quite CG, especially 1st and 4th picture, are you sure those are real?
