designed by two brothers from switzerland.
is that concrete made to look like stone?!?
something about the form and windows reminds me of schnieper architekten...
but the only swiss brothers i know... franco y paolo moro?
schneider & schneider architekten, wohnhaus mit pferdestallungen (stables, i think)
the garden (by kienast vogt) at this building was one of my favorite little urban gardens...
the nod to corb should be a good tell...
literally around the corner from this gem...
Ernst Basler + Partner's Office Block on Mühlebachstrasse, Zurich
Romero & Schaefle Architekten
I'm a newbie to posting, this is a terrific thread!!
yep. wow, i expected that to be a little tougher!
you are up, mix.
holz.box you left a couple of clues in that one so it became easier . I'll post in 2-3 hours.
ok here goes
ok hint: its a museum, pretty much the first project of the architect, in a fishing village - in the far east
a village in the far east - could you narrow that down, maybe?
the village is called Toba.
hiroshi naito - sea-folk museum - toba - 1992
Neiemeyer - Ibirapuera park auditorium, sao paulo, brazil
not bad for a 102 year old...
could someone else post another?
well here's a new thing, i have no idea who did this either.
spotted in antwerp.<img src="http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4092/4964338406_3cbd8d293d.jpg" width="355" height="500" alt="" />
crap, flickr doing weird things...or maybe its me.
if someone can post it i'd appreciate that :)
here is the photo of p2an's antwerp madness:
(hope it posts!)
I kinda like it - reminds me of bruce goff... other than that, I have no idea...
The impressions were originally meant to hold public art works, the city its located in is notorious for its "arts" industry.
I'm giving this a bump before it dies forever... want to reveal the architect and building archi?
I have no idea - looks like R&Sie applied to concrete, or could equally be a one off from the 1970's
Come on guys, I know we are all busy but lets keep this thread alive...
here comes mine:
The Pontificial Lateran University in Rome by King Roselli architects
okay so here's my selection. I've decided to be a real bastard and crop all the identifiable aspects of it. I'm throwing out the challenge to Holz, diabase, simples, phuyake' and the others.
I'll add a new pic everyday until it's answered. Guesses and hits allowed
image no. 2 - now I'm sure the hounds well get it
...my smell is not as good as Holz or others...but there is something that reminds me of Wright...US?
I DON'T CHECK IN NEARLY AS OFTEN AS I USED TO, BUT I AM GLAD THIS THREAD IS STILL ALIVE...AS AKIN, I THOUGHT OF WRIGHT, SPECIFICALLY THE Melvyn Maxwell Smith House IN BLOOMFIELD HILLS - BUT IT'S NOT IT...PLAY ON!
HERBERT JACOBS HOUSE I, IN MADISON WISCONSIN BY FLW...I FOLLOWED THE USONIAN THREAD AND THERE IT WAS!
next: please identify the building and architect for the building behind the sculpture:
oh, and no cheating by checking the image URL (which would be a dead giveaway)
yamasaki's michcon building.
but i only know it because i walked by it several times from our hotel during DEMF. there was a hoppin breakfast spot 2 blocks to the north/northwest.
you can kind of make out the ring @ hart plaza. good times.
this one might be tougher... i'll do the hard photo first. the easier one if more clues are needed...
one hint... despite the blue skies and glorious sunshine, it is in the pacNW
firm also wins for the most awkward job interview i've ever had.
Holz, I think you used another view of this house way back in this thread (specifically the cantilever shot..), but either way it's Eric Cobb's Eaton House.
damn I was going for Bercy Chen
phu is correct. and i am losing grasp of what i have and haven't posted. crap.
here is the better known view
I know, I feel like the down time in this thread doesn't help either.
To keep it going, the next (people who know my blog don't cheat):
bump before this falls off the main page...
some more images of this project, which consists of several structures over miles of road:
I have no idea - but I want to know!
One last hint then I'll reveal it if no one gets it; They're along Swiss highway A-16.
so, i am assuming these are vent structures for a tunnell...beautiful concrete work, but i cna find very little in searches for architectural tunnel vents out there...really intriguing though
In the sake of keeping the thread going; they are various tunnel vents and stacks designed by Flora Ruchat-Roncati & Renato Salvi
someone else feel free to post one
A softball to get this thread back to life
shim sutcliffe or aalto
inspiration or contemporary
Hint: Another project by the same architect:
