Scarpa, I presume . . .

Who wrote a book called "Rich and Strange" . . . ?  That's "strange" in a good way, not in a yucky sort of way (Dame Edna).

. . . Constructivism married to graphic design, of exotic yet earthy material ?  

Was this travertine door meant to blend with its wall rather than stand out, as a wood or metal one would ?

yes Scarpa.

"Constructivism married to graphic design" NO.  I would say it's understanding materials, but I didn't design it.  was Scarpa carving the materials on paper.  I think if you call it Graphic Design it kinds of looses it essennce?

Yes -- Scarpa deserves a better description than mine.  The differences between him and an earlier architect he apparently admired -- an American whose work might also be called "rich and strange" -- would make a good research paper (as a college acquaintance used to say).

Any architect's work could be said to have an element of graphic appeal, I guess; we call it "composition" ?

This thread makes me breathe more deeply.

I'm bumping it today for reasons that will become more clear soon.

I like the dirtyness of that drawing.  Needs coffee and guinness stains.

I honestly miss the days when this kind of thread was what took up most of our time on Archinect. 

Hi phuyake!

So do I, Donna.  Having fallen off the radar, I'm no longer in touch.  Wasn't there a not-too-radical reworking of the site, a while back ?  I guess that's when I lost it . . .

I'm as fond as ever of minimalism.  I'm working on a lamp.  4" paper study model:

Love that, Nam.  I like the way the vertical panel returns.  Could almost be two materials -- wood and stone, maybe ?  

You see that reveal a lot nowadays.  Nice way for two elements to (almost) meet.  Requires just as much craft as a tight joint, I'd say.
