this may be too much of softball, but i think we need an easy one after many of these.

Aug 22, 07 8:47 pm

Bravo. I see you did look in the book, because the architects name correctly is Brasini, Armando. Anyway, Orhan first mentioned contradiction, so, you get close and the clues get better.

I wanna see what you're gonna post!

Aug 22, 07 8:49 pm

SOM?, something on Park Avenue?

nice job, beefeaters. i think bunshaft was the head designer.

now admit it, did you cheat to know that natalie de blois worked on it with bunshaft? i didn't know that till i found the image.

nice, beefeaters. sounds like a great course.

Aug 22, 07 9:23 pm

finally, one i know!!!

beefeaters, that's an escalater in spain by elias torres.

Aug 22, 07 9:39 pm

Orhan, if you keep this up, you'll have to be sent to the prinicpal's office!

i know supernal knows the answer. but i am just curious how he is gonna put it out.

Aug 22, 07 9:52 pm

Orhan, I'm pretty sure that's someplace in the back of Steven Holl's mind.

Orhan AyyüceOrhan Ayyüce

and in the backs of many other's minds.
clue;
it ain't machine but sure is a good livin'.

techno is correct right? do you have the next image ready?

Aug 23, 07 9:19 am

this game is great. i'm so impressed whenever anyone comes up with the answer to one of these.

and i think i would take "someplace in the back of Steven Holl's mind" as a correct answer. ha.

keep it coming, techno.

Orhan AyyüceOrhan Ayyüce
Aug 23, 07 10:52 am

yes, it's techno's turn.

Aug 23, 07 11:09 am

Wait, Cris guessed "escalater in spain by elias torres" correctly. I was waiting for him to post a building.

Aug 23, 07 11:11 am

i guess whoever can post first - techno or cris.

I love this thread!

Orhan, you know you won't get in trouble for anything you choose to do around here. As long as Brad Pitt doesn't hear about it, that is.

i'm learning something!

ok, this one is probably too easy, but let's see who knows.

Casa Barragan - Luis Barragan - Mexico City

Aug 23, 07 12:14 pm

that's correct.
Joseph D'Urso did a very similar staircase in a NYC apartment in the early 1980s.

Dang, I know this one.....and I can't think of it....so I'm going to throw out Alvaro Siza even though I'm 99.9% certain it's wrong.

Aug 23, 07 1:51 pm

I know what it is because I cheated. Not Siza. It's in Uruguay if that helps. 1958-60.

yeah this thread, that's where I remember seeing it

emaze
Aug 23, 07 2:04 pm

phuyaka can have the credit, I just named the architect and not the building (can I have reserve 1/2 the right to post when the thread remains unresponsive for two or so days?)...

Aug 23, 07 2:11 pm

Yay Dieste is correct! Oddly enough, a Siza building was my other choice...
Continue!
