/// a hyperbolic geometry view





Here are some abstractions reminiscent of a kaleidoscope of a Japanese city / buildings created by architect and photographer Kazuhiko Kawahara. I am compelled by this type of imagery which they are not real in our minds but that is how the artist sees it.

/// i've been framed


I got the experience on walking thru downtown on Sunday and found a couple of really interesting things like this custom frame shop, there are so many things that get lost when only driving around.

/// shelter



"Homeless Chateau"



The idea behind this "chateau" is a prefab one person self-contained living module that is to be held inside a building where it can be connected to utilities, When I came across with this art piece by James WestWater it brought me back to my first year in architecture school and one of the last projects of that semester when our teacher instructed us to build a small shelter for a hurricane. I was still in my first year of school and I really didn't understand the idea of building something real at the time (the first years is when your imagination grows wild in architecture).

/// all that i loved


From childhood's hour I have not been
As others were — I have not seen
As others saw — I could not bring
My passions from a common spring —
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow — I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone —
And all I lov'd — I lov'd alone.

Edgar Allan Poe
