I love the lines of the teeny homes and how they use space. I do enjoy having more space for myself personally and an lucky to be able to that, but as art I really enjoyed looking at these, especially the concrete ones.

Though one could not possibly tell from my house now, I love Utilitarianism and the Bauhaus.



I love this dog house!

Big fan of cathedrals and visited a few great ones over in Germany. I prefer high Gothic cathedrals next to Romanesque. What I love is wandering around the cathedrals trying to find builder's marks carved into the pillers, looking at built in guild symbols etc. I remember the first time I saw the cathedral in Köln, though. One of the most awe inspiring moments of my life. I was coming out of the u-bahn with a group of other Canadians. Suddenly we look up...and up...and up. It really was reaching for the heavens. Probably the most spectacular building I've ever set eyes on.

Köln


Freiburg interior


Aachen/Aix-la-Chapelle interior


And castles:

Neuschwanstein - Was living in Schwangau and Füssen for a little bit and so only a short distance away from the castle. Really beautiful in spring/winter. Though, honestly, I think the mountains are far more spectacular.

" . . .Rietveld’s career proceeded uninterrupted until 1943. He then was subsequently barred from practising as an architect, due to his refusal to join the Nazi-controlled Kulturkammer. After the war, the country and Rietveld gradually returned to normality, and Rietveld continued his work until he died at an age of 76.

Among his numerous furniture models, The Zig Zag chair, The Red and Blue Chair, the Schelling and Military series remain as eternal design icons. Gerrit Rietveld’s designs are to be found in the most important museum collections over the world.. . "

Man, I love architectural stuff!


I came across this recently and found it very interesting.
I have a deep interest in preservation of cultural artifacts, architecture, anything of historical value ...

This link is to one of my favorite threads on the internet: People from all over the world post pictures of "Public Housing / Tenements / Commie Blocks / Projects / Housing Estates". I can't say I "like" most of the architecture in the thread, in fact much of it is horrifying. But grouping these architectural images by function reveals much -viscerally and aestetically- about the humanity behind that function. These aren't "pleasing" revelations, but they are stunning.
I've done an atrocious job of explaining my attraction to this thread but here it is if you wanna check it out:
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=247127

(Long story short: we don't have to "like" design for it to be revealing and compelling). (Blah Blah Blah).

Check this hotel out. It is in Berlin and is designed in the style of the DDR, Communist East Germany.

Stark, utilitarian and funky!

I was just reminded of an article I read a while back about this family that decided to dedicate themselves to sustainable living, and built their house into a hill side. I'd seen people do this for sheds or mine entrances in eastern Canada and Germany, but never saw anyone build their house this way (other than in LotR ).







Their website: http://www.simondale.net/house/index.htm

On that note, my cousin is actually building house with his wife and two young sons way out in the north. A log house with only straw as insolation. We'll see how it goes and may post some pics once they're done. I've always wanted to try building something more in the style of viking longhouses, like up at L'anse aux Meadows (viking ruins in Newfoundland) here in Canada.



Edit: just wanted to say that I'm really loving this thread! Great pics from everyone!
