Just came across the work of the Chapuisat brothers via the blog floresenelatico
For instance this
nam - what's going on in that first pic?
that link has some awesome stuff, btw...
loving this little visitors center and restaurant i recently came across by frundgallina architectes (more here):
toast not sure. I think someone is crawling into a spatialized/hollow wall.
@phuyaké that is quite lovely..
The NYT T Magazine Fall Design issue features and article Welcome to Smallville which talks all about how the new it trend is for small houses, not big ostentatious McMansions etc.
I thought the analogy by one person quoted therein that just like no one wants tto be seen driving a Land Rover anymore and everyone has a Prius, similarly no one wants a non-green big house...
A couple of pretty nice projects (some like the W House) i think have already been featured on this thread.
Given it's approach of reuse of an existing site, it's "small" intervention into existing building fabric what about
'bunker 599' by dutch firms atelier de lyon and rietveld landscape here
the small projects effectively divorce great architecture from big clients, there is a lot of hope in that, I think, given the sick values of so many big clients over the past decade. maybe the ultimate form for small projects is D.I.Y.<img src="http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1431/1244185274_02f8c02ed7.jpg" width="473" height="500" alt="christiania, glass house, august 2007" />

holz, yeah i think so i my memory serves...

The Habitable Sculpture by Miguel Arruda
anyone else besides me have anything to post??
Sara over at TC pointed people to [url=http://www.archinect.com/forum/threads.php?id=33434_40500_42_0]this[/url example of a small project. Dai Haifei, a 24-year-old architect in Beijing, China, found an ingenious solution to live rent-free. He built himself a mobile egg-shaped house that is powered by the sun.

Reminds me of something I saw in the current AR. But this is fuzzy, isn't it -- are those Chia tiles ? Moss ?
Bernardo Bader & Paul Seurer's Moor Room in Krumbach
love that 1st image. nice timber project. wonder if word was sourced locally?
thanks for not forgetting about this thread!
Lovely. Do you suppose those sticks are doweled to each other -- at the finger-joint corners, at least ?
guessing most of the wood is locally sourced, or at least from AT. i have no idea, about the construction, but it is stunning - you could always contact the carpenter:
It's like watching movies; I'm always asking myself "how did they do that ?"
Hmm -- is that the "Fifth Column" wittily illustrated in the portico ?
And how about that "porch light" in the second image. Do we have a theme going, here ?
i like the inset vase/decoration.
Every building should have a built-in flower holder. If it's good enough for the Beetle . . .
Gaudi it isn't. What is it ?
It's a house by a local Santa Barbara, California architect named Jeff Shelton. He's taken the ubiquitous Santa Barbara Spanish vernacular and created his own hallucinogenic, Dr. Seuss meets Gaudi version. I love his buildings.
So, that's recent ? Wow . . .

That plan is straight out of my undergrad residential studio project.
I guess they don't have ADA-type restrictions in China?"a single open stairway provides access to the upper gallery, housed within the off-white
corrugated structure."From this photo-essay on Steven Holl's new Nanjing Museum of Art and Architecture
Also can I just say how good looking the small projects thread is on Archinect 3.0!!!!
This picture seemed a perfect encapsulation of the small project idea. look at the person scaled to the building, although I will acknowledge i think the perspective is off.More via
looking back at last few posting guess it's just me :p
this one isn't even a building just a site and an elevated catwalk.. 'open architecture' by japanese practice yoshiaki oyabu architects,
oh what the hell...
H3T architects: bike sauna
"able to accommodate up to six people, the sauna is encased in a cylindrical volume clad in translucent panels. featuring a fully-functioning fireplace that expels smoke through a tiny protruding chimney, the interior is outfitted with a set of wooden benches." seems an awful tight fit!
how about Flying Mud Boat by Terunobu Fujimori (2010)
via ja+u (Japan Architecture + Urbanism) recent post ft 13 works of architectural anime.
my only thought was i was a bit dissapointed, chiefly cause i had *had hoped to see architecture from anime not like anime...
best thread ever!
moskow linn architects: swamp hut
what a cool project.
Can we update this thread regularly? I feel there has been too much cynicism in architecture lately. Don't hate, celebrate.
All of the infrastructure I've seen built in strong materials.
It is good for a building or a house that undergoes testing if it passes standard quality.
It's for the safety of all. Right..?
@kubo have at it. I was updating pretty regularly but no one else was...
Any info on the photo/project you posted? Is site in Australian Outback or American SW?
although this project is seven-storey talls, in spirit it seems like a small project. in the way it is a thin slice as it were..

thanks nam. that's far better than threads about how architects shouldn't have to be paid.
