To encourage exploration of various architects and buildings, I will post an image of a new building on a weekly basis, so we may all play "Name that Architect and Building!!!". Sorry to be lame, but I'm sort of tired of hearing how wonderful Rem is or how everyone hates Gehry. Let's get some other guys on the table, instead of regurgitating the same thing. Anyway,
I hope this link works
and i know who it is, but not because i'm some scholar, i just stumbled onto it by mistake. someone else can field this one. plus, it ain't like this guy is some nobody.
whoops - overposting tuesdays....
phillip seymour hofman?
This was a basic image in our architecture history class. Seriously, are "you kids" not learning about VSBA these days? ;-)
Actually, the building was done by Venturi and Rauch.
so how does this work then? the first person to guess correctly gets to choose the next building?
Ah, thanks for the correction, supernal.
its a copy of my 'guess the lyrics' thread which was, in case you dont recall, wildly popular! first one to get it post a new building! go go go
i dont like the 'tude in that post... please ignore it
That sounds good, who ever gets the building and architect right first, moves on to post the next one.
Ready, set, go!
supernal, please post your contribution....
No one named the building yet--Columbus [Indiana] Fire Station.
Will post next image soon.
can you at least post a pic of a building that isn't flipping me off?
hint: one of the 'transformations'--structural form: expressionism 1962-71
mmm...guessing here but the above project could be from Gottfried Bohm?
that's not it, but very good guess. same language, but not same country. and to be honest I never even heard of the architect until recently
supernal, that's a tough one. i have a feeling whoever figures this out will have had to have visited the project. i'm eager to find out who this brutalist is.
Architect - Walter Maria Forderer
Congratulations! mdler reads drexler.
Actually, the project is in the July issue of Interior Design magazine...
conoid studio by george nakashima
i thought i'd figured out a trick, right-click and get link, but some of you were smarter than that...
i personally just recognized the furniture.
contemporary building obviously...it may have been published once
easy. my ex-girlfriend went to school there and i saw that whole thing go up. parked in it a few times too.
wellesley college police station/parking structure adj. to their new student center by mack scogin merril elam ...
oh. the pkg structure is actually known as "Davis Parking"
(sorry to interject, but just noticed jafidler's post above)
jafidler, you might be interested in looking through Arthur Drexler's Transformations in Modern Architecture (MoMA exhibition book, 1979). It's full of less well known 1960s-1970s buildings that look very inspiring today. Got a copy via eBay about a year ago and it's interesting to now look for images of the buildings online. I've been planning a 'reenactment' of the 1979 exhibition at Quondam for several months now. Looks like it will finally happen.
guess it's my turn? continuing on college campuses...
posted this on my blog any guesses?
'philia, is that by felix candela?
St. Louis Abbey (or the Priory Chapel)
Gyo Obata of Hellmuth, Obata & Kassabaum (HOK) with Pier Luigi Nervi, consultant
the image url is a give away
a center for ants?, can you provide more of the building? or should we just move on?
i'll post some images... but the URLs are giveaways so no cheating...
apologize for the large images...
i am trying hard not to cheat, but it smells like charles moore to me...knowing that it's in a college campus would be enough for me to do some research and find out if it's him, and what building is it...but i don't know if that would be cheating
so i know it's charles moore now..kind of new it at first..just couldn't
find an image to prove it.
so, what are the game rules...would internet research (without looking at your images url be considered cheating?), or do you have to know the architect and specific building by memory alone?
williams college museum of art by charles moore 1981 or so
and i didn't cheat with the url..i just saw the second image yesterday
when i was trying to figure out where the column image was from.
i think the fun part is bein allowed to try and do some research
going with a hunch and proving it to be correct.
lars...see...i recognized that pomo stench right away!
a building i admire every time i visit it...living architect..not in the u.s.
should be more like ' a building that i greatly admire and visit
whenever i get the chance..'
Storhamar Farm, Sverre Fehn ?
bravo lars. went there for undergrad. the capitals are roll-your-eyes attributed to the ironic" order.
Barn from Storhamar Farn--Hedmarksmuseet, Sverre Fehn
well that was quick...wasn't sure if that building was obscure or not..
lars, very obscure for me, sensed it was scadinavian so googled fehn (lucky guess) barn and a similar image showed up, followed links. very neat building; inside looks way cool.
now I think of whats next...stay tuned
it's a very nice collection of buildings actually...he's actually added
a couple buildings fairly recently that are also pretty nice.
hey Orhan, you have to guess correctly to post a picture. you're stepping on some toes here! ;-)
if I could I'd bitch slap you right now
I'm still posting my next pic!
btw, that building looks very reminisent of some school building Giurgola did in Italy in the early 1980s
