BETONBABE SketchUp. Construction Matters examines the relation between advances in construction technology and artistic form in modern architecture. Please support this project by backing it on Kickstarter. 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. 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. A participatory facade installation for the Lisbon Architecture Triennale next month. Upload an image and see it built as a tile on the facade: Please share! BETONBABE + university library = many posts BETONBABE + office + work + work + work = almost no posts. apologies.
