so, self involved architecture blog #3.
today, 2 houses. i know nothing about either house, apart from the fact that one is older and the other is brand new (remember: i dropped out of suny purchase).
the older house is, for some reason, one of my favorite houses in my neighborhood. i love it’s simplicity, and it’s marcel breuer-esque (yes, i just wrote ‘marcel breuer-esque’, i’m very pretentious) proportions and lines. i also love the brutalist use of concrete, and the way the slabs cantilever off of each other. i don’t know if it was built in 1942 or 1982, but it’s a pretty perfect modern house.
the other house is new (and a color picture, which is kind of heretical, i know). i love how it’s situated in it’s environment. an elegant modern house that in any other city would sit in between other modern houses. whereas here it’s smooshed into the side of the hill, with only coyotes for neighbors.
