when architects design

"A chair is a very difficult object. A skyscraper is almost easier. That is why Chippendale is famous."

Mies van der Rohe, Time magazine, 18 February, 1957

The perception of architects are that we are most challenged by big projects, the bigger they are the greater the challenge. Ahh alas but the smaller projects can cause as much if not greater grief. Here is a visual taste of architects' attempt at furniture design.

, described as suits containing the negative space of specific structures that allow a wearer to fit into, or onto, structures designed to deny them. These clothing allow an intervention with spaces meant to prohibit occupation.

between Cooking and Architecture

This posting at first glance may be about the interstitial space between architecture and the art of cooking or referring to the intersection of food and architecture...where good edible design exists. It reminds me of the television programme with a pastry chef making these fantastic cakes in remarkable forms...including the Sistine chapel. But alas it really recalls de Geuze infamous remarks about us, that "Architects are like Seagulls, they make alot of noise, the eat alot of food, and they leave shit everywhere"

I can't help thinking that the way new architecture is being published internationally—so fast that you can see the same things simultaneously in every country—makes it more difficult for younger architects to take their time to find their own way of expression
