Thoughts on LA

13 Sep 2013 / 1 Comment / in Architecture

I was visiting LA attending a friend’s wedding. And for once, other than driving to get around… I actually really really like Los Angeles, especially downtown. Its lush, walkable, full of food and diversity and decent architecture. However, it was one of the few cities where I haven’t been able to find street parking. Everything is either a lot of vallet. Also I saw 2 bikes all day. I guess that’s the beauty of it. No competition if you need to bike. . . . As I have visited LA more and more, my distaste for it has slowly changed and the more I feel I could live there. Its no longer as polluted as I remember it to be, nor flat. Perhaps I’ve changed over the years, or the city has finally created a decent downtown.

MAXXI, ROME by Zaha Hadid

22 Apr 2013 / 1 Comment / in Architecture, Photography

I honestly think this is Zaha’s best project. It sits in a difficult site where there are a volume in open area connected to a small area crowded area around the corner. There’s lots of interesting public space and the space flow from one room to another. I often find myself anticipating what level I will end up when I walk down a tunnel.

Negozio Olivetti – Olivetti Showroom by Carlo Scarpa

18 Apr 2013 / 0 Comments / in Architecture, Photography

Probably one of the smallest yet elegant museum I’ve ever Visited

From Wiki Italia :

“The Olivetti Showroom in Venice is a small room with two floors located in Piazza San Marco , designed by the architect Carlo Scarpa . After losing its original function for years, on 20 April 2011 the store was reopened after a thorough philological restoration that has returned the colors, the furniture and the collection of original Olivetti machines. The Assicurazioni Generali , which maintain the property, have entrusted to FAI – Italian Environment Fund , which takes care of the maintenance and ensures its use to the public.

Midnight in Manhattan

1111 Lincoln Road, Miami by Herzog & de Meuron

24 Feb 2013 / 0 Comments / in Architecture, Photography

At first I didn’t think this was anything special, my was I wrong. Its absolutely the most gorgeous parking structure I’ve ever seen. It’s probably the most unique building in Miami. On top of being a garage, its also a private residence with a roof garden, a high end clothing store and numerous shops on the ground floor.   I’ll let the picture say the rest.
