architettura a Verona
Se dovessi insegnarvi architettura? davvero una domanda difficile… Inizierei proibendo gli ordini, mettendo la parola fine a questa incartapecorita stupidaggine degli ordini, una incredibile sfida all’intelligenza. Insisterei su un vero rispetto per l’architettura. D’altro lato, racconterei ai miei studenti come siano commuoventi le cose dell’Acropoli di Atene, di cui comprenderanno in seguito la superiore grandezza. Prometterei di spiegare la magnificenza di Palazzo Farnese e del vasto golfo spirituale che si stende tra le absidi e la facciata di San Pietro, ambedue rigorosamente costruite con il medesimo “ordine”, però una da Michelangelo e l’altra da Alberti (sic) -e parlerei di molti altri fatti, i più semplici e veri dell’architettura, la cui comprensione richiede una certa competenza. Insisterei sul fatto che nobiltà, purezza, comprensione intellettuale, bellezza plastica e l’eterna qualità delle proporzioni rappresentano le gioie che l’architettura può offrire e che ciascuno può comprendere.

Maurice Smith (1926–2020), Architect of Complexity
It’s fitting that long-time MIT architecture professor Maurice Smith, who died this December at 94, had been, in his youth, a New Zealand ping-pong master because everything he taught in studios for over 40 years was nuanced with spin, subtlety and intellectual swerve. Out of his own asymmetrical spirit, in his own oblique language, from his richly layered thought system, Maurice—as everyone called him—taught students to think different. Why design a conventional three bedroom apartment when, after all, a group of Highland bagpipers might want an apartment with a figure-8 circulation?

The article delves into how the structural design helps tell the story of the ground-breaking research that will happen within. With themes like transparency and objectivity which drive the scientific process, the exposed structural steel and concrete reinforce these themes throughout the interior and exterior.
Jenaro Pindú (1946–1993) was a prominent cartoonist, sculptor and architect of Paraguay. He was a student of Hermann Guggiari, one of the best-known Paraguayan sculptors of the twentieth century. (via Wikipedia)
The Vessel, the spiraling staircase at Hudson Yards on Manhattan’s Far West Side, was closed to visitors on Tuesday, a day after a 21-year-old man jumped to his death in the third suicide in less than a year.
It was unclear when the 150-foot structure, the vast development’s centerpiece, would reopen to the public. A spokesman for Related Companies, the developer of Hudson Yards, said that the structure was “temporarily closed” and that the firm was consulting with suicide-prevention experts, including psychiatrists, about how to limit the potential for more suicides.
Tadao Ando’s Bourse de Commerce — Pinault Collection
“The Bourse de Commerce features ten exhibition galleries, as well as reception and mediation spaces,” explains the project description. “They can put on different presentations or else work together in a continuum. A 284-seat Auditorium will host talks, encounters, projections, concerts, etc. The Studio, a vast ‘black box’ in the basement, will be ideal for the presentation of video and sound pieces. The Foyer, around the Auditorium, will also be able to put on performances, installations and free forms.”

Illusory Street Typography Pops Off the Wall in Bold Murals by Ben Johnston
Toronto-based designer Ben Johnston plays with color, shadow, and perspective to create typography that appears three-dimensional in his site-specific murals. He’s a self-taught designer, spending time in the agency world of South Africa before moving back to his home country of Canada to pursue a freelance career focusing on branding and typography.

Lava and ash billow out of Raung, one of the most active volcanoes on the island of Java in Indonesia. Raung towers more than 10,000 feet above sea level and was captured here during a powerful eruption in 2015 with a short-wave infrared satellite camera. The ash produced during this activity forced the closure of numerous airports on the island.

Inception Chair Vivian Chiu
From the designer:
“Taking the chair archetype and placing within it chairs that are progressively smaller. Each chair has hand cut grooves on the inside edges of its seat frame as well as notches in the seat back. These grooves range from 1/2” wide to 1/8” wide. The mechanism works so that the pegs fit into the grooves of the chair one size bigger and slides into place so that the horizontal edge between the chair seat and back line up. The simple mechanism allows the chairs to be taken apart and put together with ease.”
To all those followers out there, I know I haven’t been posting much lately. Work and life has been upended this year by the pandemic, we are all in this together, and tumblr was relegated to the non-essential category. Still, I love the connections and friendships that have come out of tumblr and always hope there will be more time tomorrow for more.
My wish for 2021 to be the year we come out of this hole and start rebuilding a better tomorrow remains and I hope the same for all!
Castle in the Cloud Adam Bulley
From the artist:
Epic conditions last night from Arthur’s Seat.
From my kitchen window I could see that the fog had set in for the evening so it was just a matter of choosing where to go from a long list of locations that would have worked well. I had visualised a shot of Edinburgh Castle surrounded by the haar for years so I headed to Salisbury Crags in the hope that it would be high enough to get above the fog and view the Castle. Arriving I initially thought that the visability was too low, but I decided to walk up anyway. After a couple of minutes of walking I suddenly saw the Castle standing proud in a sea of clouds.

A 5-story building in Shanghai ‘walks’ to a new location
An 85-year-old primary school has been lifted off the ground – in its entirety – and relocated using new technology dubbed the “walking machine. "In the city’s latest effort to preserve historic structures, engineers attached nearly 200 mobile supports under the five-story building, according to Lan Wuji, chief technical supervisor of the project.
Blue Haze: Beautiful Desert Photographs By Mariyan Atanasov
From the artist:
The project Blue Haze is from the Sahara desert and more specifically Merzouga, Morocco. I couldn’t have a chance to travel abroad this year because of the COVID and the idea of this project was born while I was checking my photo archive – those pictures are from my trip to that destination 2 years ago.
I spent a couple of days in that part of the country and despite that, I didn’t take a lot of photos there, therefore I decided to create some small case study about it. My first idea was to present it in a more natural way, but in post-processing, I just started to play more with the colour channels and I liked what I got as good colour combinations so I decided that it is more interesting to represent it in a non-standard way. At the end this is the result.
The Air Yakusha Design
The idea behind this project - to create a feeling of instability and futility of such an architecture. From the equilibrium point of view, the volume is mounted on a vertical wall, which at the same time, not only stands on a rock but also stands in front of it.
Azulik Uh May Art Center Roth-Architecture
AZULIK Uh May is a new multi-faceted art center in Francisco Uh May, Mexico, due to open at the end of November. It is the latest project of Roth (Eduardo Neira), the founder and designer of luxury resort AZULIK, and the adjacent art space IK LAB.
These anthropomorphous structures have timber canopy-like roofs and appear to naturally grow from the ground, with various rooms connected by floating bridges and meandering paths guided by the spaces between the trees.
AZULIK Uh May will encompass an array of creative spaces, including an innovative art space, a lab dedicated to fashion and design, a state of the art recording studio as well as residencies for artists. At the heart of the center, a school focusing on the universal language of art and craft will bring together the local Mayan population, artists in residence, international students, and scholars.

Pirouette House Wallmakers
The Rat trap bond is a brick masonry method of wall construction in which bricks are placed in vertical position instead of conventional horizontal position and thus creating a cavity within the wall that increases thermal efficiency, cuts down on the total volume of bricks used and is ideal for concealing structural members and service ducts.
The idea was further developed to form a series of slanting walls that danced left and right, converging only to support the ferrocement shell roof. Each staggered wall has been tailor-made to suit the issue of deficiency in space that this residence posed, aiming to create larger volumes and a feeling of privacy.
