As you might know, the editor of this blog graduated from architecture school more than a year ago and is no longer surrounded by beautiful books. Every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 9 am to 6 pm (and longer) she sits in front of a Windows desktop computer with two monitors. She works with a common CAD program, speaks to clients and contractors on the phone, she spends a lot of time breathing the stuffy air of conference rooms, she visits construction sites, and she is working herself through endless Excel sheets. Plus, she finally has business cards which are not self-made.
Therefore, the editor of this blog was not able to post things the way she used to.
Therefore, she will start posting things again from now - but things will be different.
You will see: The Real World of Architecture.
PS: If she happens to have enough time after work to scan books, you will of course still find inspirational images on this blog.
Death, divinity, power, sexuality, transcendence. Milestones. This project is about towers, not as much as a fixed typological or geometrical relation between height and base as the evocations this archetype can produce. This will be an exploration on the narrative and the image of the tower.
