White sculpture model above the pool

It's another type of basement... There is the pool exactly under three supported points of the house.
It will be nice shadow by those cantilevers on the water in hot days. And water makes additional lightings on  the bottom of the house from pool's surface. The goal is house looks like flies above the pool.

Zaha Hadid MAXXI in Rome

In the middle of the March I try visit MAXXI museum in Roma, just to see it outside and make some fotos of the building. First of all I was surprised after strong fence around museum area... Construction works was finished on the site, I heared it from media, and I hope spend a time seeing detailes. But it is not possible now... Only VIP persons may walk inside this fence and all others are second kind of people... So... To have a secret is the best way to be famous.
Next message I'll put some videos outside the fence, spy videos:)))...

Shanghai Expo 2010 - Danish pavilion - movement...

This building is not about the country, it is about movement...
When you ride on bycircle trough this ribbon, you fill samething about the country more exactly then you see pictures and diagrams... I went up with plasure along this serpentine space  and saw nothing outside because these small holes. So, this path is the 3-D diagram.
Croud goes to the upper point hope to see main think in the pavilion, but finally can see just the site around... The suspended structure without a subject inside much more attractive and looks like simple white model which is the subject itself...

Shanghai Expo 2010 - UK pavilion - Dandelion...

It is smallest building among all Shanghai pavilions this year. It not takes all area of UK plot. It has almost nothing inside. It is invisible behind the fance. And actually it is not a building at all... But long time before opening the Expo it was most famous pavilion, and after opening became most attractive. The queueing time is three hours, it means 180 minutes... have you ever been in three hours queue? Can you imagine samething just to see it you can stay so long time? Maybe tank of water in desert... Or touch Pope...
But here is just dandelion on envelope.

La Biennale 2010 Zhu Pei instalation

You can see in my blog by the label Biennale 2008 very interesting composition made before. And now there is the real rest for  someone's eyes, who rich this small and looks like wild garden. It is the cloud sit on the meadow... or transparent hill or just the ghost of hill... Any way it is basilisk... Congratulations to young studio from Bejing!

2010 La Biennale di Venezia

My first and most important impression by this year Biennale is Rem Kolhas. I see him, I look at him, and it seems to me, even watching him you become smart:)))... and understand more about architecture. You understand love architecture inside yourself but not you in architecture. I just had opportunity shake his hands and say my congratulations to Old Dragon of modern architecture! Gold Lion was given him on this Biennale.
On these pictures Rem Kolhas in cofeshop together with his team (I think), and on the presentation his stand.

Mercedes-Benz museum Stutgart

First time I saw so clearly that look of building so much depends on basic idea. This building depends on idea by Mersedes cars. These cars often are like sofa... camfortable and without passion. So and this museum. Perfect in constraction, but too static in impressions... It has a lot of nice joints and details, but does not has one-piece movement.

Calatrava brige in Venice

Venice not accepts something new, really... I expected to see fresh and glamorous brand looks bridge by Calatrava as new pearl of Venice, piece of new age near the gate to ancient town. But just a few days it was opened, it again with scaffolds, dusted and dirty. I can't make pictures from some sides because of crowds of wast near it's stands... Bridge has a lot of fine details, made very accuracy and carefully, except of welding of subconstractions. So, my impressions confused... Not so clear... But it is Calatrava! Help to my mind!:)

Second Milano exhibition dyring economy crises... Last one was the test for first shock of furniture makers, all of them asked each other about forecast for finish bad economy situation. And just await good news.
This year all understand that it is for long time... And try adapt for these problems. Adapt in very different ways. I look for evidence of future progress on stends of real newsmakers, as I am used to think about Cor & Interlubke, for example.

Black and white also help lose oneself in atmosphere of fogoten medieval island.

ArchMoscow 2008 ran-up the model

This is the model of future skyscraper. It is not block of flats, actualy, it is block of houses. Every one thing of this building is realy separate house, made in it's own style. One of them is poor, next one is gold, another one is in ancient style. It has enough space for wind of fresh area, gardens on each levels or cuple of trees. This idea copy traditional russian house built from logs. But in this model log construction rises to clouds.

IMM Cologne 2010 Koln exhibition

This year it was smaller and simple. Big brands surprised nothing. Most often question is, are they still alive and sound? But has not strong concepts and fresh ideas. Owners see to visitors woeful eyes and stay proud being there, sometimes presenting empty space.

_ Lago Maggiore first look of the site and first ideas

The site situated far deep in mountains, far of Lago, 700 m. above sea-level, and 500 m. above the lake. But it has nice view directly to Lago Maggiore, in this moment it is cloudy. All area built on rural tradition houses, but out of the 300 m. area around the lake possible to build exactly what you whant. Any style and any design. So, becouse of our first impressions of this site, idea of water flows goes from top of the mountain, appear. Big rock on the site allow us create something with suspended parts. In consort with Anna Sokolova.

Parthenon rebuilding overlook

I was forty when I first time seen Parthenon in live. I was surprised, it is under reconctruction. Since 1975... Big kran still stands inside the temple, marble block das't has order and stored everywhere around... In ancient time it was build in ten years, without mashins, kran, computers and historikal investigations, of course. I guess it is to slow and endless. But Parthenon is allways perfect, in spite of condition, thanks to Iktinos and Kallikrates.

Small hotel building re-erecting - project Volga

It was 2 stored old white bricks hotel. The idea not only about re-erecting of original building, but change it's image fully, make it fashionable and attractive. First floor consist of suits, second - of two big luxury apartments. We used metal structure for upper floor, and moved arched line of windows forward in reason to add gross floor. Flat roof has structural addition for partes and so on.

Thanks to client we had capability to realise same ideas about variations of parts and joints from basic work matireals. Because of perfect engineering design we hope receive good small buildings... But... Not yet good quality of building process, especially about concrete. We doing better next time, of course.

2009 Milan exhibition

Before next 2010 Milan exhibition I just would like to remind how it was last time. Besides furniture, architecture of stends was very attractiv. Bicause it first, you see, when you walk in front of exponents. Sometimes it has realy fresh design. Perhaps, this stends idea very appropriate for smoll house project:) Anyways, it's never boring.
