holz, you're out of control....but we're reaping the benefit so, um, carry on!

that eberstadt project is remarkably similar to one i did in undergrad, except that my little box was hung from a parapet instead of sticking out of the wall itself, meant to be a sort of parasitic building for a voyeur-type. cool to see something so similar as an actual construction.

what i like about the projects you've been posting is the variety. i'm not one to criticize the cool refined modern box projects (several of which we've seen on the 'name that...' thread), but they do start to run together. here you've posted such a range of forms and approaches to texture and materiality that it's much more exciting.

studio granda: always a favorite.

when are you going to have a blog, by the way. get these things out there. i'd also love to hear what you'd say about them because you've obviously got a discerning eye.


Jan 18, 08 7:19 am  · 

Wow i really love that car park-mailny because usually they suck and that pool is pretty!

Also, regarding the RuckHaus...Doesn't it have furniture that folds out from the walls. I thnk you can see the outline of the table etc on the wall.?

are you familiar w/ this project?
Kortknie Stuhlmacher Architecten

no clue on the website, i've been pulling 55+ hour weeks and working a comp for a while now with no end in sight, but i'm on it.... as soon as i learn flash...

and the eye might be discerning, but the ability to detail as such still lacks

i love the ruckhaus, and yes, the furniture folds into the wall for great effect. i'm not digging the latent swastika on the outermost facade, however...

yeah, holz. i know the rotterdam project, saw it when i visited and also loved that it had the same 'parasite' connection. i think i saw that it's been taken down now?

anyway, i love this:

the mt fuji studio i love.

the muziekbox starts to be a caricature of the minimal wood box type.

man, this is fun. i don't know how you have the time to absorb all this stuff, holz. hope you keep an archive in higher res of everything. you're on your way to a barnes & noble coffee table book: 'small projects'! ; )

I keep telling people that architecture is alive and well. These are the examples. . .

Wish I had kept in touch with this thread -- looks like I missed a lot of pics. But who can complain about quantity. . .!


Feb 14, 08 12:03 am  · 


if anything, i don't know enough (small projects) so anytime i find one, i feel i have to share it.

anyway, i feel like this is a great time to be an architect (outside of the looming recession - impending doom impending doom!) especially with what is going on overseas. the number of outstanding architects humbles me daily.

MacRoen, do you have these pictures ordered on architect?

Feb 14, 08 3:20 am  · 

ordered on architect?!?

Feb 14, 08 3:30 am  · 

hmmm ok typo sorry.... what I tried to say: do you have all these pictures categorized / downloaded on your computer?

Feb 14, 08 4:23 am  · 

oh. yes, i have a pretty extensive image library, with these projects holding a special place. i'd love to work on a book at some point. but i'm not really experienced with that, don't know where to start and am probably too opinionated to be a decent author.

still throws me off to see my garden shed project tossed into this mix...

anyways I just stumbled across this one at the IaaC blog

House of Dance and Feathers, Lower 9th Ward, NOLA:

University of Kansas's Community Garden Pavilion, NOLA:

I don't have any good pictures of it in my Flickr, but Tulane's Prototype 1 House in NOLA is nice as well, I'll try to grab some nice shots next month when I'm down there

guesthouse for an anthropologist

Feb 15, 08 11:25 pm  · 

yowza! apparently an anthropologist in a place where it never gets cold, gets hot, or rains.

i love how sexy architecture can be when climate issues aren't part of the equation! you can imagine how exciting it was to go to l.a. and see so many wonderful things that couldn't work here in ky.


ok, here's one from me, a temporary exhibit structure in a downtown park. meant to house two exhibits, one the career work of a local architect, the other the development of our waterfront over thirty+ years. i organized the competition for the design, winning design by local architect patrick blackburn, but then i ended up doing all the drawings that got it built, helped get free and in-kind donations of material and labor, and did c.a. done about 1995-96?
