Architecture


#101

I took this one at the Getty museum because it reminded me of Blade Runner.

Some interesting buildings there.


#102

I had a place at Uni to do Architecture, but transferred to something else at the end of the first term.


#103

How did the word ‘architect’ get hijacked by IT departments?
We have Solution Architects, System Architects and my favorite job title ‘Enterprise Architect’

I suppose you have to massage the ego with more than huge pay rises these days!


#104

Amazing how a bit of nice weather changes the perspective!


#105

Even Palomo Faith is in on it now


#106

I think the point is that your GP surgery (and a shed load of other building) look like his designs :slight_smile:


#107

someone who gets it.


#108

Do like a bit of Art Deco


#109

Never studied Architecture but have picked up a interest over the years. First full time job I had was as a office junior for Sheperd Robson so spent some time visiting lots of sites including what is now my office and reading books in their library. Was never a big fan of their work though(Wood Green Shopping centre anyone !).

Do like a bit of Deco I have to admit and now I recongnise its value some of the Edgar Wood Architecture in my home town of Middleton.

Favourite building for its complete over the top interior is the Granada Tooting. The grandest bingo hall you could ever visit.

Covered in scaffolding at the mo.

Know their work well, some pretty good new stuff, recent building of theirs is opposite my practice’s London office, v.high quality materials


#112

Portland stone?


#113

Theatres and cinemas are the most obvious legacy of the Art Deco movement.

This is in Adelaide. The Capri Theatre…

It still contains one of the world’s most popular Wurlitzer organs amongst enthusiasts. It was featured nearly every week on Radio 2’s The Organist Entertains…


#114

Pretty sure. Seems to have all the materials I specify then get value engineered out.


#115

Time for a style I can’t bloody stand, they exist due largely to design lazy architects and easily persuaded planning officers. They infest the Lake District and Scotland (just about anywhere TBH), I give you the “architect designed” oak framed with glass style house. I assume other houses are designed by hamsters or some such.

Bloody 'orrid things!

#116

That’s a beaut.


#117

C’mon Bob, you’re just jealous they got to the oak before you did. You’ll have to make your next plinth a ‘tribute’ to this - it looks like there’s demand :grin:.

#118

An oak and glass plinth…


#119

Hope to go to a gig at the De La Warr sometime, I’d probably have a bit of a ‘moment’


#120

Don’t forget to add in the word ‘bespoke’:face_with_symbols_over_mouth:
