Love House | Takeshi Hosaka | Via

"I draw the biggest curve on there with width and depth of a building, I distributed a place of a roof and a place of a sky with the curve. And I planned the stairs which went up from the first floor to the second floor with this curve. The main space of the building which these created, it is with the space that it is not inside, and is not the outside. Quiet rain, intense rain, rain with wind … rain create various sounds. Light of the sun and moonlight play in the Love House, and rain and wind visit Love House, and birds and insects visit a tree and a fruit tree of Love House. We can know that all nature given on the earth is prepared in very small Love House… "

Takeshi Hosaka

To build an entire house around the integrity of one stairway. Very interesting. The dimension of the stair is also quite beautiful.

Boris Bernaskoni’s ARC AT Nikola-Lenivets

1 / 11 The ARC, described by its designer, Boris Bernaskoni, as a landscape object rather than a building, is situated on the edge of a forest. (Photo: Yuri Palmin)
The ARC, a 13.2 meter high blackened timber structure, acts both as a kind of triumphal arch and portal, whilst also containing a well, bar and observation deck – and a single multi-purpose room.

The circumstances around the construction of this hauntingly intelligent architectural offspring of Russian conceptual art tradition are worth relating.

About 20 years ago, the village of Nikola-Lenivets in the Kaluga Region, was a typical dying outpost of Russia’s inhabited realm, with a ruined church, the decaying remnants of an extinct collective farm and just three families surviving on vegetable allotments. This was at the time when Moscow was probably the world’s hot spot of anarchic energy and creative indulgence – for the spectacular collapse of the ‘Evil Empire’ was experienced by many as an Apocalypse and a new Universal Beginning. Artists flew to the West in droves, but there were also those who sought refuge from the looming tsunami of western capitalism in the depths of the Motherland’s frozen backwoods, attempting in remote and autonomous artistic communes to realize fragments of the broken promise of global communism.

Brooklyn/Queens expressway - it’s giant steel underside. This bad boy carves a line right between Carroll Gardens and Red Hook. This physical cut creates a massive cultural barrier between these two otherwise very close neighbourhoods. As a result these two areas have a massive disparity between them, it’s rather startling.
