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.
- 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/

- New Forest House was built as a replacement for an existing structure in the National Park and as a result PAD Studio were limited to a 120m² area due to strict planning regulations.

Comments06/11/2016 #13 CityVP Manjit#11 There is another discipline that is akin to "school by doing" which is "action learning" - the important thing here is that doing is not a past tense, it is in the here and now, and Claire Cardwell can engage this right here or anywhere.
For sure getting to know how the Lloyds translated this to architecture is something you won't know unless we engaged in that school, but even me just discovering this as a reality has somewhat imperceptibly changed me. It is the appreciation of this awareness that matters.
Whether it is this discovery I had today about Taliesen philosophy courtesy of your buzz or visiting those who think about "action learning" http://www.wial.org/action-learning - the actual reality of this discovery is that both you and I can then operating in the school which we to belong even when it is a self-created school of our own online learning journeys.
This is why I especially really loved the affinity that I dug out of your buzz because it is kindred with how I personally want to relate to the WWW a.k.a. http://myhero.com/hero.asp?hero=T_BernersLee_MMUN_CA_07 and so I frame it as a "learning journey".06/11/2016 #9 CityVP ManjitWhat was personally relevant to me in this buzz was that I encountered the intellect of E.Fay Jones which informs my yellow hive, it contained the emergent and design aspects of architecture which informs my violet hive and it told the story of an educational institution for the Lloyd-Wright's vision of an architectural fellowship which informs my gray hive. When it comes to my own learning journey this buzz actually contained far more elements than simply directly appreciating the design thinking of the Thorncrown Chapel. Thank You for this buzz.06/11/2016 #7 CityVP ManjitDid not about Fay Jones. The one thing obituaries create is a doorway into a life, so I first accessed the NY Times page for his obit http://www.nytimes.com/2004/09/01/arts/design/fay-jones-83-architect-influenced-by-wright-dies.html?_r=0 There I also learned about http://taliesinfellows.org/i/taliesin-fellows/ so again something new for me but now I see the connection even more with Lloyd-Wright as an educator. That in itself is worth buzzing to my Gray HIve https://www.bebee.com/group/gray noting here that my hives are for my own learning journey, rather than a singular interest in the field of architecture. An obit of an accomplished person describes the key moments of a life and a person's work, .In Fay Jones it's describes a "chance encounter with Lloyd-Wright". Again another evidence point what @Sara Jacobovici and Reena Saxena on LinkedIn have been talking about regards the subject of synchronicity. I also note Olgivanna Lloyd Wright's contribution in enlightening Frank Lloyd Wright towards this vision that I learned today was Taliesian. What we attribute to greatness is a web of relationships that I am beginning more and more to recognize in my own learning journey.06/11/2016 #6 Claire CardwellIt's on my bucket list of places to go along with Falling Waters by Frank Lloyd Wright who was E Fay Jones's Mentor. I particularly love the fact about how E Fay Jones insisted that the chapel only be built with materials that could be carried by two men through the forest.

Architecture (Latin architectura, from the Greek ἀρχιτέκτων arkhitekton "architect", from ἀρχι- "chief" and τέκτων "builder") is both the process and the product of planning, designing, and constructing buildings and other physical structures. Architectural works, in the material form of buildings, are often perceived as cultural symbols and as works of art. Historical civilizations are often identified with their surviving architectural achievements.
