Comments23/11/2016 #9 Deb HelfrichThe Starchitecture phenomenon is very interesting. It is natural to think big, bold, challenging, showy for public spaces, but really what matters to most of us is livability and that is in short supply when it comes to a thriving career for a great architect.
I would love for beBee to be the sort of place where we could have these kinds of discussions and have some folks from Malmo could chime in about their experiences living in one of his buildings or as part of the community affected by a tourist-quality residence.23/11/2016 #8 Miguel López de la OlivaIn my point of view, he cares more about the beauty of its buildings, rather than its functionality and usability, and most of arquitects priorize the second. Just let's see what happened with some of his buildings in Valencia or Canarias, some doors are impossible to be oppened or closed and everytime that rains, are collapsed by water.22/11/2016 #7 Javier Rojas Garcíaufffff, I don´t know really, I have to see the relationship between this two big buildings in the middle of New York. I liked Calatrava´s first jobs but now I think if you see one of them you`ve already seen all. Too big, too much money and very bad ageing of the buildings.

Comments21/11/2016 #1 Matt SweetwoodYou know, people like to talk badly about this facility. But I have to say it is stunning, functional and an amazing addition to Lower Manhattan. It's a fitting way to give the middle finger to the terrorists who took down the WTC on that spot. In America we are builders and I am thrilled to hear it was a Spanish Architect who did it! The design is brilliant. I shall tour you around next visit since much has changed since you were last here. The problem with the facility is the government / union control of the construction which went billions over budget.. They should have let Trump build it. He builds on time and under budget; HAHAHA

- 19/11/2016Planchonella House by Jesse Bennett Architect, Queensland, Austraila, Planchonella House was designed with a simple idea in mind- to create a series of joyful spaces to inspire and enrich daily life. Set in tropical north Queensland, the house embraces the heritage rainforest surrounds and utilises experimental passive design methods. The simplistic approach and use of Lo-Fi technologies results in a raw and honest dwelling. Contours of the site ridgeline have formed basis for the playful lines utilised in concrete profiles. As not to protrude out with the ridge, the profile is mirrored and cuts back in to the ridge. To read more go to :- http://www.caandesign.com/planchonella-house-by-jesse-bennett-architect/
