blog hiccup

Sorry the last few days have been hectic...alas the world of architecture has been busy too

Starchitects in the News; Steven Holl in NYC. Read more here and here. And da Rocha in LA. And appropriate to those two dense cities, as well as new towns -
33 -- the number of mature trees used to construct a new 2,000 square foot house. Or you could do like Indonesia and plant 79 Million (in a day). Sort of gives new meaning to "green building," eh?
Makes you want to get away and be amongst the trees? Or from a little cottage in Negril? I just bought a house as well...its not solar, like his...nor is it as minimal as this
