Louisiana State Museum LOCATION: St. Amant, Louisiana AREA: 17,000 Square Feet CONSTRUCTION COST: $2.5 Million COMPLETION: 2004 The design of the Holy Rosary Complex – comprised of an oratory, administrative building, and religious education building – for a rural Catholic Parish in South Louisiana, is an honest exploration of form, function, light and materials that results in an engaging and profound study in sacred space. Neither opulent nor austere, Holy Rosary Chapel presents a thoughtful meditation on sacred spaces and the spatial embodiment of spiritual experience. The masterplan for the rural campus creates a strong sense of place and draws a distinction between the program’s sacred and secular components.

Cedric Price CEDRIC PRICE (1934-2003) was one of the most visionary architects of the late 20th century. Although he built very little, his lateral approach to architecture and to time-based urban interventions, has ensured that his work has an enduring influence on contemporary architects and artists, from Richard Rogers and Rem Koolhaas, to Rachel Whiteread. Taking the view that architecture should be enabling, liberating and life-enhancing, Cedric Price’s approach was all-embracing. Firms House Hunting?

Le Corbusier : architect biography Le Corbusier Le Corbusier was born Charles Edouard Jeannerct on October 6, 1887, in LaChaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. Le Corbusier was the second son of Edouard Jeanneret, a dial painter in the town's renowned watch industry, and Madame Jeannerct-Perrct, a musician and piano teacher. The family proudly traced its ancestry to the Cathars, who fled to the Jura Mountains during the Albigensian Wars of the twelfth century, and the French Huguenots, who migrated to Switzerland following the Edict of Nantes (1598). La Chaux-de-Fonds' tradition of offering refuge includes both Rousseau and Bakunin. His family's Calvinism, love of the arts, and enthusiasm for the Jura Mountains, were all formative influences on the young Le Corbusier; Charles L'Eplattenier, a teacher at the local art school, dominated his education.
AL_A : Amanda Levete Architects : First photos of Spencer Dock Bridge News Profile Selected Projects Selected Furniture Archive Writing Recruitment Contact First photos of Spencer Dock Bridge The 40 metre span bridge with its fluid lines and undulating concrete surface will take trams, traffic and pedestrians across the Royal Canal. The edges of the deck peel down to reveal a space for pedestrians to pause and take in views of the dock and Linear Park which is currently under construction. The underside of the bridge merges with the piers in a single movement with joint lines in the concrete designed to accentuate the geometry of the form. The finish of the concrete provides high visibility against the dark water of the canal and at night the structure will be vibrantly lit from below giving the bridge a significant presence.
Canadian Competitions Catalogue / Catalogue des Concours Canadiens "The link between earth and sky is at the image of the one that links childhood, through memory and knowledge, to an infinite world of insight and communication." (Gilles Saucier) The Saucier-Perrotte project suggests a site development in harmony with the Parc de la Cité's natural vegetation, by adding a rectangular north-south oriented building almost entirely concealed by the existing flora. The denuded and urban esthetical expression of this architecture creates a contrast with the rustic and natural character of the immediate environment.
