Super excited to see this project coming from Santiago Calatrava. This really appeals to my sense of design and construction: a dynamic and seemingly complex form achieved through smart, modular assembly. It's really just a bent frame repeated over and over with a slight tweak in orientation. With the repetition of parts, re-usable construction hardware, and light and recyclable materials it is both efficient and sustainable (as anything at this scale can be). The even have beautiful line drawings of the construction process! Very Nice.
In contrast to Calatrava's heavy and complex concrete projects executed in the past, the "formwork" used during construction is light, quickly assembled, re-usable and recyclable.
Why stop at five? This animation is so good, and there are plenty more amazing buildings to choose from
Finally got around to documenting my first complete project with Stark James. Not our typical project, but I feel like we brought a lot of cool touches and subtle moves to this now awesome backyard.
I don't know how it tastes, or even how much it costs, but I would drink the wine from this winery just to be associated with it. Stunning.
Super beautiful animation. I don't know why I was so caught off guard by the portrait aspect ratio, but I can't think of another video I have seen that has embraced it so successfully.
Mark and I just finished the soffit at our Central at Steele Park project and am pretty pleased with the result. Its a series of recycled pallet planks of random width and thickness (and "finish") finger-jointed together to form the interior soffit. It seemed like a relatively simple thing, but each piece is, uh, custom, so it really was a labor of love to get a relatively crisp product out of extremely rusticated material. We individually matched each pair and cut them to length. We cut all the horizontal pieces the same size and thought we would come back at the end and cut a straight edge after they were all installed, but we ended up with a sweet crenellated edge by accident and decided to keep it. Bonus!
