Re: Architecture and Urban Planning.

I'm interested in the interaction between architectural landscape and culture, urban planning, renewal, things like that. On a lesser level, I appreciate the aesthetics of architecture for itself, in particular how it translates to film, i.e. what makes a landscape photogenic in pictures and on film. If anyone wants to comment on this I'd be very interested to hear. (You can PM or something if you're shy. )

Starting on some Jane Jacobs reading, and also in the process of getting some things from Koolhaas.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Re: Architecture and Urban Planning.

As form must follow function I like houses like the below (on Golf Club Drive, in the Philly suburb on Langhorne, PA) where snow will tend to run off the roofs, for example. An omission IMO though is that they don't have solar panels on the roofs. Which can be made both break-resistant, and not too reflective (so as not to interfere with the visibility of birds and helicopter pilots, even drivers where a 2nd story or lower roof slopes enough).

Re: Architecture and Urban Planning.

Studying Urban Planning at the moment , still a while to go before I can get a job. Have to do some architecture subjects due to the structure of my course. I can appreciate architecture, but I absolutely loathe doing the subjects relating to it. Such a ridiculous workload.

Spend too many hours lurking on skyscrapercity, just looking at photos and wishing I could travel freely.
Unfortunately being a pov uni student and living all the way on the other side of the world creates some limitations.

Re: Architecture and Urban Planning.

Nice 2C some recent Safdie work, though I rather dislike the urban density of skyscrapers. His Habitat 67 work (as in my last post ITT) is adventurous, without shutting out the sun from neighboring structures, or exceeding the approximately 10 story height of most fire department ladders (when fully extended). I especially like the below. (More "fascist uniformity"). Seriously, they're far more energy efficient than the "staggered boxes" of his in my last post.



I'm surprised that Bucky Fuller isn't represented ITT yet. (Personally, I think geodisic domes and dymaxion houses are fugly, though they might make academic sense).

I'm more of a Frank Lloyd Wright fan:

While I am not religious, houses of worship are often creations of absolute beauty. And thanks to Wiggly for starting this thread.
