Al Yaqoub Tower







For the first time in my life, I can declare, without restraints










This is an ugly building. ugly as the term in all its expressive glory, no lines between or strings attached.

Baloon Bench

By H220430, a mouthful, or should I say, mindful of a name, but the idea is great, and the outcome, well, stunning. Four anchors are concelaed within the balloons. Via Mocoloco.com

Beekman Tower

I'm sorry Mr Gehry, I cannot understand this building. I have so many issues with this child of yours, that it is difficult to accept him into my class. He is ordinary, yet arrogant, he tries to be different, but looks the same, he tries to be sleek, but really is so rough. What he is, though, true architecture, nobody ever said that architecture had to be beautiful, this is not, but it is truly a piece. Thank you, for this monstrosity that I can't stop looking at.

Brutalist - ugly?






Kenzo Tange's Masterpieces, the Tokyo Olympic Stadium, easily more beautiful than any of the other Olympic Stadiums, closest counterpart I can think of is the one for Athens by Calatrava.




This building makes concrete look exquisite.





I appreciate these images from an unknown source.

A tour of Pruitt-Igoe today






The tour was conducted last week, JUST LAST WEEK. Theres nothing much really to expect from a forest, the forest that it is, but its nice to know that something is actually happening within that desolate site. and the substation is such an errie sight, i wonder why they left it.






PRUITT-IGOE LEGO 4934 pieces, 4 hours 37 mins, my block is done

omg, look at what i found! Pruitt-Igoe on the St. Louis Post-Dispatch









I realise that I have never taken a photo of my looking



A portrait is not just an image of a face, but really, the person


I haven't gathered the courage to expose myself completely yet, the shadow is my last reserve.

This caught me by surprise

Al Hamra Tower



thank you CrazY




It took me 2 seconds to realize that this is not a render, but the real thing. The joys of incompetence




Hihi

it has been awhile, but I have been thinking of building something for real this time
