    Ever wonder why there are never any people in these contrived AD type archiporn pix?

    Dwell frequently throws people in their photos. There was a particularly creepy one maybe 6 months ago with a little girl standing on a stairwell wearing some sort of fuzzy frog monster mask.

    Thanks for that link. To me it's not entirely clear if the site is a critique of revisionist modernism in domestic architecture. The name says "yes," but the commments and photos say "sometimes."

    I couldn't find the mask shot, but the people in the shots do complicate the reading of the architecture- as they always do.

    This conversation is a bit too cerebral for my tastes. If anyone needs me, I'll be translating Jean Cocteau scripts into Latin.

    The original article was from "Dwell", but the bizarre frog-mask photo was reproduced on the "Unhappy Hipsters" website. I enjoy reading the latter, as it's not only amusing, but also packs architecture shots from a number of different sources into one place).

    Make that four projects. He designed this memorial for persecuted witches with Louise Bourgeois in Norway. It will be done sometime this year.
