A little side project I undertook during the construction of Tree Pavilions; one of the projects I have worked on as an Architect at Swanbury Penglase.

The time-lapse photography was shot between April and November of 2011 whenever I was out out on site for meetings or whenever I could get the chance for a site visit on weekends.

The 3D model and animation were both done in SketchUp 3D.

Hope you enjoy.

‘Peep’ Short Film by Marcio Kogan

It’s said that most people only get to experience great residential architecture through photographs but one award winning architect is doing something about that. Marcio Kogan, the São Paolo based architect, has made a number of short films focused around the people (and animals) who live in modern architecture and use it every day.

As architectural photography is usually quite serious his short films are quite refreshing and funny (and a little cheeky). The above short film features one of his office’s projects House V4, located in São Paulo.

Michele De Lucchi

Tolomeo Desk Lamp (1986)

The Tolomeo desk lamp was designed in 1986 by  Michele De Lucchi (pictured right) in collaboration with Giancarlo Fassina for the Italian lighting company Artemide.

At the time Giancarlo Fassina was in charge of Artemide’s technical department and played an integral role in the design of the technical aspects of the lamp. As a result Michele De Lucchi decided to share design attribution with him on the project.

This great documentary by Britt Arthur recently screened on ABC 1 in Australia.

Life Architecturally follows internationally acclaimed husband and wife team, architect Robert McBride and interior designer Debbie Ryan, to discover what inspires their groundbreaking architectural concepts and designs. This intimate documentary observes the pressures of building a multi-story, twin-tower development; revolutionary new schools, one in the shape of an infinity symbol, and the ongoing construction and design of their own family home – which is on the backburner once again due to how busy they are. Plus, they’re part of an international consortium short-listed to design and construct the new billion-dollar Cancer Care Centre in Melbourne.’

The documentary is now available to watch on ABC iview

Watch the preview for the documentary below:

Ice Cube Celebrates The Eames

This video was doing the rounds back in December but I still want to share it with you. Created to promote the Eames exhibitions and events in the Pacific Standard Time Cultural Festival.

Interestingly before his rap career Ice Cube studied architectural drafting. In the video he describes the Los Angeles he knows and gives props to Charles and Ray Eames.

Love the line: “They was doing mashups before mashups even existed.” – Ice Cube

Outré Gallery’s Mid-Century Soirée at the Robin Boyd House

Before it becomes a distant memory I want to put up some photos from the ‘Mid-Century Soirée’ that I attended last month. Held at the famous Walsh Street House in South Yarra,  the cocktail party was organised by Outré Gallery to coincide with US artist Shag’s ‘Inscrutable Mystery Guide’ exhibition.

The Walsh Street House was designed in 1958 by the architect Robin Boyd and is featured in two of Shag’s paintings, one of which was the centrepiece for the evening.
