The Ribbon Chapel - one of my favourite buildings - Part One

The Ribbon Chapel designed by Hiroshi Nakamura and NAP is one of the many buildings on my list of places to go and see someday.  It takes its name from the pair of timber clad staircases that wind around the exterior of the glazed wedding...

Flint House: the building that must be stroked

Flint House: the building that must be stroked

It’s a miracle house that shows the whole of geological evolution. And it’s the most tactile part of the mighty Waddesdon Manor, home to Europe’s richest banking family (not to mention giant bronze gorillas and Jeff Koons eggs)A five-tonne...

Currently travelling, Claire but have marked this one for future reading and comments, as I don't want to be hasty. Thanks for the tag, Gert Scholtz

Architects I admire - Part 4 - John Lautner

Architects I admire - Part 4 - John Lautner

I wrote a rather tongue in cheek piece recently called Bizarre Buildings Part Two - Space Age Fantasy where I picked out some of my favourite futuristic buildings from around the world.  Four Architects I came across made a point of specialising in...

I do agree with your statement about designers keep rolling out variations of the same building. Even the most famous architects do that often. Thanks for the link. Interesting article indeed. Round building doesn't mean to have round rooms. Rooms layout can be identical to a conventional house, but rooms can have a beautiful panoramic view, something I especially appreciate.

Jerry Fletcher - I would love to live or at least hang out in one of John Lautner's houses! Two of my favourites are the Segal House and the Stevens House - both are in Malibu, but at prices of $15M and $11M each they are definitely beyond my budget! Good luck with the downsizing - it's a chore moving, but downsizing is a whole different matter! Here's a video of the Steven's House which was recently bought by Edward Norton :- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=doDDJnus8Es

Architects I admire - Nico van der Meulen

Architects I admire - Nico van der Meulen

I first met Nico van der Meulen in early 2011 at a CPD course on Marketing in Centurion.  He was late, I was on my way out of the door.  It was clear to me that the course was about Marketing Theory as opposed to how to make your practice money....

David B. Grinberg - Nico is expensive, but he's worth it. I am a wee bit too cheap for my own good and am busy putting up my prices dramatically. I do have to pay for my RIBA course after all. 2.5K Pounds is not a lot of money, but when it's translated into Rands it's nearly R50K which is very expensive!

How I got started in Architecture

How I got started in Architecture

Many people over the years have asked me how I got started in Architecture and how I managed to run a business in the Construction industry with very little experience.  About a 100 years ago I worked for the Financial Times in London.  I was a...
