    WILLIAM WURSTER - HOUSES

    Thinking back, an image that most endures in my mind is the white tower and compound of William Wurster's Gregory House (1929) in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

    The Gregory Farmhouse, as it's usually referenced, is a misnomer: it is a country retreat designed and built between 1927 and 1929, a place of the soul, no doubt, for a very sophisticated San Francisco family. — Published 2011.1130

    INNER LIGHT OF THE NATIONAL CATHEDRAL

    With nave and aisles bearing vast arrays of vivid, intricate stained glass, sunshine naturally washes warm, beautiful color across the stone arches and columns of the National Cathedral, atop Mount St. Alban in Washington, D.C.

    Since the Gothic masonry structure was shaken by the magnitude 5.8 Virginia earthquake on August 23, 2011, this inner light has taken on another dimension. — Published 2012.0704

    STANLEY TIGERMAN: ARCHITECT AS CHAMELEON

    A bedrock belief in the classic theology of modern architecture was that architects always had to be original. Architects were to create a new built world that divested itself from the past, from classical architecture and its decoration, and invent brand-new, innovative buildings. In many ways, for a modern architectural designer, being original could be more important than being good. — Published 2011.1005

    MAISON CARRÉ BY ALVAR AALTO

    Maison Carré in Bazoches-sur-Guyonne, France, is a private house by Alvar Aalto which is to a major extent stamped by the owner being an art collector: one could say that it is at the same time a private palais and a gallery. — Published 2011.0831

    HS#9 BY COOP HIMMELB(L)AU

    "Revolution 9" is a song recorded by the Beatles and released on The White Album in 1968, that heady year when students were demonstrating across Europe, the Vietnam War was at a fever pitch, and Coop Himmelb(l)au was founded in Vienna. The song has been described as the best-known work of avant-garde music and the most disliked moment of any Beatles album. — Published 2011.0810

    CALIFORNIA HOUSES OF GORDON DRAKE

    Over and over again, Gordon Drake declared that it was his avowed intention to design decent homes for people on minimum budgets. It is natural enough, therefore, that he will be best remembered for his small homes designed for California living.

    One kind of assessment of his work can be approached through looking at the things that he used. — Published 2011.0713
