The Davis Experience

Recently my father directed me to the website of the firm of a friend of his down in Phoenix. It is not unusual that he would show me architectural pages but he told me to show some friends and tell him what I thought. So I checked it out and it was apparent why he wanted my opinion. This site is not exactly like any other firms page I have been too. Check it out yourself.

BIG lecture

Sorry for the delay...

Two weeks ago I attended a lecture at UIC by the Principal of the Danish design group BIG, Bjarke Ingal. He went through a few projects almost word for word off of the site and also explained what is called the Copenhagen Experiment. A series of housing projects attempting to change the face of the Danish capital. This group of projects is also a resipient of a Graham Foundation Grant and the models and presentation videos are all on desplay at the Graham Foundation gallery until March 22nd located at The Madlener House, 4 West Burton Place, on the northside of Chicago. Everyone should check out there site and just kind of meander around. It is all a ton of fun and very refreshing. I will try and right a little more about this in the near future.

ps. They worked to gether with lego to make one of their huge models, this needs to be seen in person!
