Todd Eberle Photography

Although I’ve never seen the photography of Todd Eberle, it’s obvious that he’s been around for a very long time.  I’ve linked to his architecture pictures, but he’s got quite the oeuvre of portraits and other categories.

The International Association of Architectural Photographers

If you have ever wanted an architectural photographer but haven’t known where to find one- you’re in luck.  The International Association of Architectural Photographers is a website that introduces architectural photographers from around the world to potential clients.  There are also forums for discussions on topics ranging from “how to use a small flash” to “hardware” and “software.”  It’s a great resource for photographers and those looking for photographers around the globe.

Throwback Thursday: The Eight "Greatest" Buildings

Pictured above are (according to Architecture: A Crash Course by Hilary French) the eight greatest buildings of all time.  She admits that the task of pinning down the eight greatest buildings is impossible to completely fulfill, but I found her choices very interesting.  Her choices are (from left to right):

  • Hadrian’s Pantheon
  • Joze Plecnik’s Church of the Sacred Heart
  • Denys Lasdun’s Royal College of Physicians
  • Adolf Loos’ Muller House
  • Marcel Breuer’s Whitney Museum of American Art
  • Louis Kahn’s Kimbell Art Museum
  • Kevin Roche and John Dinkeloo’s Ford Foundation Offices
  • Le Corbusier’s Notre-Dame-Du-Haut

I’m eager to get some feedback on this.  What are your choices?  And what did she miss?  I would add Walter Gropius’ Fagus Factory, but I have to admit that I hadn’t heard of some of these buildings.

Still Obsessed with Brutalism

I ordered this book off of Amazon and have really enjoyed it so far.  I’m not familiar with most of the buildings because they are all from England, but it’s obvious that post-war reconstruction of Britain was heavy on the side of Brutalism.  If you’re looking for a good intro to the subject, I recommend it.  Does anyone have another book they recommend on Brutalism?? I’ve been looking with little success.

Built from 1951 – 1956 in Ahmedabad, India, this private residence is a knockout.

Ezra Stoller is my latest hero.  What beautiful images.  It sealed the deal when I saw the shot of Richard Meier’s Douglas House.

Rafael Viñoly’s International Airport at Carrasco, Uruguay.  Interesting to me that there are no lights on the ceiling- it’s such a clean look.  Thanks Nate!

Throwback Thursday: Lloyd's Building

Lloyd’s Building by Richard Rogers.  It’s not too far back to 1978, but I love the building so much that I threw it in anyway.  Most of the mechanics of the building are placed on the exterior to keep the inside as open as possible.
