Roger Stevens Building, and others, from the complex at University of Leeds.  Brutalism is my latest obsession.

Habitat 15 by Predock_Frane Architects

December 14, 2010 · Posted in Architects, Architecture Around the World, Modern Design · Comment 

Predock_Frane Architects nailed this one on the head.  I’m such a sucker for anything white that some might discredit my opinion, but these condos have won the 2009 AIA Design Honor Award and the 2010 Westside Urban Forum Award.  They’re located in West Hollywood and it looks like there are only 3 units left- between $600,000 and $750,000- so if you like them, you better get a move on it.  More info at Habitat15.com.

1 Billion Dollars, 400,000 Sq. Ft. and 5 People

December 6, 2010 · Posted in Architecture Around the World · Comment 

One of the world’s richest families has moved into their new home.  It’s not a few of the levels though… it’s the whole building.  There are so many rumors about the, estimated, 1 billion dollar residence that it’s difficult to know what’s true- one report said there is a BMW service station inside the 6-story garage.  I did find some legitimate renderings on Forbes.com, but 400,000 sq. ft. could make for a wicked game of hide-and-seek.

We can officially add Andrade Morettin Architects to the list of amazing Brazilian architects.  These are only a few images of his beautiful portfolio.  For more info, check out his website.  I can’t get over the staircase in the bottom picture.

American architecture could sure use an herbal infusion of Scandinavian ideology.  This video is a pretty decent college education, packaged in an 18 minute box.
