“A UNIVERSE IN ITSELF. “ONCE YOU’RE INSIDE YOU SHUT THE WORLD OUT” SAYS PEDRO. THE NEO-PALAFITTE CREATED BY BERNALTE Y LEÓN WAS CHRISTENED “LOS LOCOS”. “WE ADORE THIS PLACE, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT’S RAINING AND THE METAL CURTAINS BECOME A WATERFALL.”

WE’VE ALWAYS LOVED THE PAST. ESPECIALLY NOW THAT IT HAS BEEN SET FREE BY THE INTERNET… RELEASED FROM THE LINEAR ACADEMIC LENS OF TIME. ISN’T THE PAST SORTA CULMINATING IN THE PRESENT? SO, WE WANT TO LINGER BACK THERE AGAIN FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF NOW. AFTER ALL, EVERYTHING IS ALWAYS CHANGING ALL OF THE TIME… EVEN THE PAST. This post originally appeared on august 12th 2009. and much like its original context, many of the links no longer work.
“We adore this place… when it’s raining the metal curtains become a waterfall.”
This house → Bernalte y León and…
These sunglasses → BLESS…  oh, and David Horvitz sent this along.

And also, this → song.

Please enjoy your time and space.

Felix Burrichter and Andreas Angelidakis on “4 Poster Bed” ♥ …

RO/LU believes there is no past or future… only the present moment in which everything lives IRL. The 4 Poster Bed, which most likely began it’s life in the 16th Century, has traveled to RO/LU for the present version of the Pavillon de l’Esprit Nouveau as an echo/shadow/smile that creates a literal proximity in form/poetry to the original Le Corbuiser version. The piece is constructed from welded wire mesh coated with chromaflair iridescent paint to help the object teach us about change, motion and time. The interior “ceiling” of the bed is outfitted with a full size mirror so that we can begin to see ourselves merge with the object we love.

“In the bed is the Bed. Without knowing it. The past tells the present the already forgotten story of them both.” Borges adjusted for Le Corbusier by Matt Olson

JuvetLandskapshotel

We’ve always loved the past. Especially now that it has been set free by the internet… released from the linear academic lens of time. Isn’t the past sorta culminating in the present? So, we want to linger back there again from the perspective of now. After all, everything is always changing all of the time… even the past.
I was digging through the RO/LU Blog archives and came across this project. Matt tells me this was everywhere when he first blogged about it back in 2008. So beautiful. Peaceful. Quiet. Wish I could call this home. 
Erika…

This is as close as anything i’ve seen lately to what i’d build given the chance.  wow.

It’s a hotel designed by Norwegian firm Jensen & Skodvin called Juvet Landscape Hotel.

Named for French pop / disco star Patrick Juvet, the projects main financial investor.

Perfect huh?

Via below the clouds.

Elle est la synthèse de tous les arts incluant toutes les disciplines et à ce titre elle doit être libre, ne devant obéir qu’aux contraintes techniques, de sécurité, d’hygiène et d’aménagement des sols. Mais l’homme a un jugement différent. Congelé dans le passé et malade de la tradition, il y a ajouté de telles contraintes inutiles que toute évolution semble vouée à l’échec. L’habitation, pourtant cellule de base de toute société est actuellement le seul domaine où le progrès, surtout en France, est quasiment impossible, dans l’indifférence générale des utilisateurs et de la plupart des architectes.

Dans un paradoxe ironique, la notion de «Futur» a tendance à devenir instantanément obsolète dès lors que cette vision prend forme. Un autre paradoxe venant s’ajouter à cela est que le progrès technique contemporain, lié à l’informatisation totale de nos sociétés, a généré une accélération de l’histoire qui a cassé sa linéarité d’antan pour la transformer en quelque chose de sphérique et d’exponentiel, sur lequel les déplacements d’espace et de temps opèrent sans aucune hiérarchie, dans une entropie totale.

Just got the new BALACK magazine publication of Nicolas Moulin’s Subterranean (thanks Mehdi Hadj Khalifa!)  Beautiful in the way it seems like everything BALACK is.

“Dans le Brutalisme, la notion du progrès est, comme le disait Le Corbusier, de «continuer à construire comme au Moyen Âge, mais en plus grand, grâce au béton». Du moyen âge à l’âge moyen, Nicolas Moulin se penche de plus en plus sur le concept de l’obsolescence comme état permanent des choses, comme on a pu le voir dans sa vidéo.”

Si assume come elemento base il quadrato ricavato dalla pezza di stoffa quale primo logico impiego della materia prima. Questo permette di utilizzare senza scarti il materiale, di operare su un elemento geometricamente definito é come tale progettabile, rifiuntando qualsiasi operazione imitativa di rilievo antropometrico. Infatti e solo rinunciando ai metodi tradizionali di tipo sartoriale…

Working on a project that involves some Archizoom research and stumbled onto this.

I think this work is a film as well as an article in Casabella  –  December 1973

Would love to see the film.
