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...

ok hint: its a museum, pretty much the first project of the architect, in a fishing village - in the far east

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

The Pontificial Lateran University in Rome by King Roselli architects

Dec 1, 10 7:04 pm

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

Dec 1, 10 7:15 pm


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?

Dec 6, 10 4:59 am

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!

AH HA...

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.

Dec 9, 10 7:01 pm

damn I was going for Bercy Chen

Dec 9, 10 9:05 pm

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):

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

Dec 14, 10 6:23 pm
phuyaké

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
