I always get mixed feelings when a space designed for a specific purpose is turned into a self-referential, frozen-in-time ‘monument’ in the name of its historic, architectural and artistic value. Regardless of my personal and questionable opinion, everyone hail to Carlo Scarpa, for he was a damn brilliant creative mind, which nobody can deny 💪🏻 #1958

This incredible building just north of Hoxton Square on Pitfield Street was once the Gaumont cinema which opened in 1914 with a capacity of 866. It closed during the Blitz but re-opened in 1941. 15 years later, it was sold and in the following years housed a meat packers, delicatessen, importers and wholesalers and an artists studio. After close consultation with the local community and planners Waugh Thistleton architects helped deliver a scheme that combined reconstruction of the original 1914 Gaumont facade with the construction of a contemporary black-brick, green-roofed building. We have a 2 bedroom apartment for rent here. #londonfacades #londonproperty
Gio Ponti had birthday yesterday. It is 127 years from his birth. I am super excited to go to Paris this week to visit his retrospective at Musee des Arts Decoratifs. This is my favorite moment from Parco dei Principi hotel, designed in 1960. It is just blue love! #thespacesilike #gioponti #ponti #modernistarchitecture #italianmodernism #architecturehunting
Arthur von Schmalensee - Kanslihusannexet 1945-1950 - In order to meet the growing demand for workplaces at the Swedish Chancellery, an annex was planned in the nearby Cephalus block in the 1940s. To make place for the new facilities, older buildings had to be demolished, which sparked a controversy among the public. In an attempt to respect the local spatial minutiae, von Schmalensee adopts the formal language from the existing 18th century chancellery building of Adelcrantz and Tempelman across the street. - Classicism seems to present many useful devices in reconstruction of the block. For instance, the public circular courtyard not only creates a clearly legible space, but also connects the new construction to the preserved buildings and allyways of the main street Västerlånggatan. The circular form reappears in curved corridors and provide a rational plan solution that sows the entire complex with the existing urban fabric. The chamfered edge of the block facing Riddarhuset, becomes the main facade and perpendicular to it a mirrored axis gives a false impression of a completely ordered symmetrical building. - Despite being heavily criticized by his colleagues for his historicist approach, von Schmalensee succeeded in a building that respects the cultural importance of both the site and the program, creating a continuum between old and new. - Swedish Disgrace #arthurvonschmalensee #schmalensee #ivarjohnsson #1950 #kvarteretcephalus #gamlastan #classicism #swedishdisgrace #swedishgrace #architecturedetail #courtyard #alley #urbanism #urbanismo #urbanrenewal #medieval #context #modernism #byggnadskonst #baukunst #architektur #architettura #arquitectura #plandrawing #grundriss #facade #archilovers #architecturalphotography #architecturehunting #thespacesilike

@okoloweb - - - - - - I will talk about photography of modernist architecture and its social media influence at 18.00 at @ghmp.cz in Prague today, mentioning great work and passions of my dearest friends and great professionals like @pierluigiserraino , @modarchitecture , @misterngo , @clementevb , @shftoptplus and others. I will also show some of my favorite visits and shots I took recently, including this amazing terraced housing Wyldefel Gardens in Sydney, designed by John Brogan in 1936.

Finally in Nancy to show our Objects of Refinement exhibition at My Monkey gallery and explore work of Jean Prouvé. This is my very first post on his work. This door he designed and fabricated for L'ancient Institut de zoologie in 1930, building, designed by Jacques and Michel André. #jeanprouve #frenchmodernism #nancymodernism #jacquesandre #thespacesilike #architecturehunting #modernism
Again on the road. Today at Weissenhof estate admiring works of heroic time of modernism including this Le Corbusier's semi detached house, built in 1927. #modernistarchitecture #thespacesilike #architecturehunting #lecorbusier #weissenhofsiedlung #modernism #deutschewerkbund

La vecchia filanda - Dignano Swipe through to see the garden of my dreams 🌳👀🌳 . On our way to Arta Terme we stumbled upon this stellar piece of industrial architecture. We drove over a bridge and spotted the three oculus windows so obviously we had to turn around and find it. Operating from 1857 up until the 1950‘s this building has almost 100 years of stories to tell and take my word for it, you can feel it on site. This is the beauty of traveling without a strict curriculum, sometimes you just find exactly what you want without even knowing that you were looking for it. . . #architecturestudent #travel #architravel #industrialarchitecture #architecture #italia #lavecchiafilanda #lostplaces #theplacesIlike #exploremore #ruralexploration #architecturehistory #architecturehunting

"Jednom ću otići,sigurno.Otići ću i više se nikada neću vratiti. U ovaj grad,niti ću više ikada hodati ovim ulicama. Doći će dan kada ću spakovati svoje stvari u neke velike kofere i samo otići bez oproštaja. Možda ću u nekom drugom,većem gradu biti bolji,sretniji čovjek. Ovih ljudi mi je preko glave. Ovih licemjera.

Bengt Lindroos - Kvarteret Drottningen 1984-1985 - Kvarteret Drottningen is an interesting example of an urban intervention in historic Södermalm and a rare case of contextual postmodernism in Stockholm. The project consists of several interventions. It is ambiguous in terms of authorship and time, often concealing the difference between old and new. For instance, the newly built red wooden house to the east, resembles vernacular houses typical of the area. Another example is the how two existing rendered brick houses, from the 18th century, are renovated and incorporated into the project as if they were designed by Lindroos himself. - The different buildings vary in height and material. Roofs are either single or double pitched and the interstitial spaces have generous yet intimate character. Some have wooden façades and others in concrete, but together they carry the same rich variation of the neighbouring houses. Instead of copying the surrounding, Lindroos extrapolates the underlying morphology of the context, and adapts it to suit contemporary building culture with both ease and with a sense of humour. In a concrete plinth one finds the imprint of two old doors. One of the faux-doors has both a handle and a plate with the architect's name inscribed on it, as if he lived in the foundation. - Swedish Disgrace #bengtlindroos #lindroos #1985 #sventorstensson #urbanism #context #fuckfuckcontext #södermalm #stockholm #katarina #housing #wohnung #domus #architecturehunting #spacesilike #byggnadskonst #baukunst #arkitektur #architektur #architettura #grundriss #plandrawing #elevation #postmodernism #swedishdisgrace
