Visitors to the recent Piece by Piece: Renzo Piano Building Workshop at the Power Station of Art in Shanghai were engaged in the evolution of the famous architect&rsquo;s key works through multi-media presentations.&nbsp; Various study models made of wood, foam, morphed plastic, and even pantyhose provided insight into the limitless and unpredictable avenues of the architectural creative process. &nbsp;Suspended models of various scale and detail hovered above viewers as informative construction process documentaries played on the wall. &nbsp;</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/8v/8vwyqvgqly0stwaq.jpg"></p><p>The entire the exhibition space pulsed with creativity.&nbsp; It was as though visitors were inside Piano&rsquo;s brain.

With eighteen magazine-ready spreads, Hill matches shots of each house as a &ldquo;dyptych&rdquo;, often aligned to show how one house&rsquo;s element can be extended into the other, but with clear atmospheric differences. Other shots are paired by their similar perspectives, or proportional beauty &ndash; the hinge of the dyptychs serving as the axis of symmetry between the two houses.</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/ez/ezcwiqlslotizu3n.jpg"></p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/un/un9utppx331ao6pe.jpg"></p><p>The gaze in these photos isn&rsquo;t critical &ndash; the goal doesn&rsquo;t seem to be to declare a winner in the Glass House battle.

Don Justo, who never had any training as an architect or a builder, was "left with [nothing but] the strong conviction that God wanted him to build a temple." And so he did. The year was 1963 when Don Justo first laid the foundation of the Cathedral in Mejorada that he continues to build today.</p><p>Perceived by neighbors as "The Lunatic Builder" because he was building without any authorized permission, Don Justo remained steadfast in his spiritual mission&nbsp;&mdash; with the help of public donations and technical advice&nbsp;&mdash; to keep working on his temple until "the end of [his] days".</p><p>Sounds like a movie, right?</p><p>Well, director <a href="http://jamesrogan.net" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">James Rogan</a> created a short documentary in 2010 based on Don Justo's ongoing story called <a href="http://www.cathedraljusto.com/home.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">"The Madman and the Cathedral"</a>.
