“Homeowners of the Dahl Cottage will enjoy the comfort and coziness of the home. With its unexpected views, porch options, and the fact that each bedroom has it’s own bathroom, this will enable someone to live their best life.”
I’ve always admired the Glenwood Park neighborhood design. A walkers paradise. An urbanist’s dream. Nicest hood in Atlanta...if not second to Inman Park. A precedence has been set. #weloveatl#newurbanism#webuildatl 👌🏾
In my new home, there are so many things to learn. My dreams have been a strange jumble of people and places, familiar and unknown. When I look at the surroundings, I realize that my inner dialogue is constantly storytelling. I piece together time, context, systems and the people through fragments and visual cues. The story comes as quickly and as instinctually as my emotions. So how much is truth and how much is projected is the mystery, as with all things perceptual.
I love the angles, the dynamics and the feel of activity that this station translated although it no longer seems in use. There was a low, concrete bench with a glass wall that keeps us out, and it looked like it may have been a stairwell in the past.
$20 Billion dollars investment Hudson Yards, the Highline, the Shed, the Vessel, Chelsea Galleries, Whitney museum, Chelsea Market, Google NYC HQ, HBO, TimeWarner, CNN. "The new heart of new York City". And how much affordable housing? Jobs for the cultural-petty-bourgeoisie. #spatialfix#newurbanism
Exploring some ideas (on a napkin in a sushi restaurant while travelling through Germany!), for a new town centre we are designing in Melbourne.
I’m applying ideas after studying the 900 year old village squares in old towns like Rothenburg. They were designed so long ago, yet they nail key urban design principles that make it such an appealing place to be in, which too often are missed on new projects today. Highly walkable, mixed use, terminating vistas, density and scale, textural, quirky and just enjoyable to be in. The squares are the heart and are always so well framed...they capture the unique identity of each village.
I know it’s a very different context to Australia, but the principles are universal.
It’s a little quite in the pics as it’s so cold it started snowing. ⛄️ #architectslife#alwaysthinking#walkableplaces#newurbanism#rothenburg#creatingvibrantcommunities @clarkehopkinsclarke
"...the spectacle of clown civilization. Sustained on a clown diet rich in sugar and fat, we have developed a clown physiogonomy.
We dress like clown.
We move about a landscape filled with cartoon buildings in clownmobiles,
absorbed in clownish activities.
We fill our idle hours enjoying the canned antics of professional clowns.
We perceive God to be an elderly comedian.
Death, when we acknowledge it, is just another pratfall on the boob tube.
Bang! You're dead!" (Kunstler, 1996) #interruption#rethinkingdwelling#newurbanism
