Historic Arlington, TX: The Old Mayor's House

Posted on August 6, 2009 at 1:18am 0 Comments

Our professor wanted to expose us to the Preservation side of architecture. Arlington, Texas has a number of historical sites scattered about. Of course, one must keep in mind that "historic" in the DFW Metroplex means it's older than about 50 years old, once again proving Eddie Izzard correct when he makes fun of us.

"We've restored this building to the way it looked over FIFTY YEARS AGO!!!"

"Surely not! No one was alive back… Continue

Rest in Peace, Julius Shulman

Posted on July 29, 2009 at 9:17pm 0 Comments

I only recently found out that Julius Shulman died at 98 on July 15th, 2009. If you have not had the chance to do so, please read his obituary.

My class was lucky enough to be offered an in-depth architectural tour of it by architect Tom Cox. There are so many photos and so much information to cover, that I've split it into a three part series.…


The Cube Project (Seven to Sundae)

Posted on July 15, 2009 at 9:09pm 1 Comment

From concept to implementation, to re-implementation, 7 cubes, Golden Scale to one another, realized in physical 3D form. Documenting mistakes, misconceptions, and admitting I'd have to start over after completing about 90% of the project was only half the fun.

Following our exploration of The Golden Ratio, my Professor assigned… Continue

Separating Space and Serving Soup

Posted on July 7, 2009 at 7:50pm 0 Comments

In the latest blog entry, we compare and contrast great architecture to...a bowl of soup?

Architecture separates space. Before the structure, there is only the client, the environment, and space. The plan must meet the means, needs, and desires of the client. The structure must durably transcend the challenges the environment poses to achieve those ends. An engineer considers this before designing a structure. An architect makes an art of… Continue
