yup. i figured it'd have to be an east coaster who got that one.

A little Brian Healy story;
When I was in high school I was introduced to him by a mutual acquaintance, and he had me over for diner at his own personal beach house which happened to be in my hometown. I was sort of on the fence about architecture as the college application process started, but after hearing him speak about I was sold. I definitely credit him for inspiring me to pursue architecture. Great guy, but no response when I tried to apply with him after graduating.

you're up Lars

he is a good guy...i used to know two guys that worked
for him...and i've followed his work pretty closely. he was also
on a jury for the rotch competition which i was a finalist on...

his models and drawings are really nice..

yeppers...

Aug 23, 07 3:59 pm

Church of the Autostrada is in Complexity and Contradiction...

...here's a competition entry from 1971, prototype for an Esso Filling Station (obviously). Curious if anyone knows the architect. Otherwise, just want more people to know the project.

sorry again. The architect did have a 1970s a+u devoted to his work, but seems to have faded into obscurity since then. Tafuri notes this work.

Feo+Aggarbati+Saggioro+Vigni (via Tafuri) Not getting it right the first time is embarassing though...

Bravo!

Guess what, this is another on the Transformations. I told you that book was good.

from the phantasmagorical scale I would almost guess BIG but somehow it doesn't look right...

Aug 23, 07 5:52 pm

the "so very close" tipped me off, I hadn't seen that project yet. why did Plot split again?

here's one:

Aug 23, 07 6:04 pm

I'm still trying to figure out why WHAM! split up.

on a recent flight i watched the "blades of glory" movie with will ferrell & jon heder as a male figure skating pair and the movie actually included the habitat project from the 67 world's fair...or something like that

this thread reminds me of that movie

Aug 23, 07 6:51 pm

ok before i leave for the day I'll leave this hint since there's no takers yet:
the building and architects are located in the same city, which rhymes with Shmienna, in a country that rhymes with Baustria

sorry I was away, I'll search for a good entry.



whose this??

Aug 24, 07 11:50 am

After trying all night to figure out the identity of Viennese building and also being side-swiped by pixel blur building, architects collape from exhaustion.

Quick, call ARUP for unprecedented structural solution!

Aug 24, 07 1:45 pm

ok i'll cave since no one got it yet.
It's Henke + Schreieck Architekten, the "Vienna Loft" apartment building. I'll have to look the date up but I believe it to be late 80's - early 90's. They're more well known for their K-47 office building in the heart of the city:

Aug 24, 07 1:54 pm

phuyaka, post another building if you don't mind.

larslarson
Aug 24, 07 1:56 pm

phuyaka..even knowing the firm's name i still can't find pics of that building...although i do remember it from a book i had on 'contemporary european architecture' that i got in 94 or so.

larslarson
Aug 24, 07 1:56 pm

of course that was before i looked on the 'images' side of google...

brian buchalski
Aug 24, 07 1:57 pm

i know it's in brasilia...i know it's part of the congress buildings (or right next to)...in between the congress and the justice palace...so i could guess say it's niemeyer, but i'd think it's a trap...but it's in brazilia for sure (i remember seeing it in pictures)
