Neo Gothic Gothic Revival (also referred to as Victorian Gothic, Neo-Gothic or Jigsaw Gothic, and when used for school, college, and university buildings as Collegiate Gothic) is an architectural movement that began in the late 1740s in England. Its popularity grew rapidly in the early 19th century, when increasingly serious and learned admirers of neo-Gothic styles sought to revive medieval Gothic architecture, in contrast to the neoclassical styles prevalent at the time. Gothic Revival architecture often has certain features,derived from the original Gothic architecture style, including decorative patterns, finals, scalloping, lancet windows, hood moldings and label stops. Relation to other cultural movements The Gothic Revival was paralleled and supported by "medievalism", which had its roots in "antiquarian' concerns with survivals and curiosities.

J-Loft by Plystudio Architecture and design practice Plystudio have completed an apartment interior called J-Loft in Singapore. The project involved removing all interior walls from the apartment and installing box-shaped divisions and furniture along one side of the 1,200 square foot space. The installed elements comprise storage, fixed seating, worktop surfaces, a bay window and stairs to the attic. The interior is constructed from 12mm plywood, clad in maple veneer. Find more information about the project on Plystudio's blog and on their website. The following is from Plystudio: J-LOFT Sing Joo Walk, Singapore 120 sqm Completed 2008 This typical upper storey post war walk-up apartment underwent extensive remodeling in order to meet the specific needs of its new owner. As a result, all existing interior walls were demolished to make way for more light and space within its 1,200 sqft shell. The plan is primarily defined by a series of timber boxes arranged in a linear strip similar to bookshelves in a library.
Made in England The History of Visual Communication This website, which contains the material of the course VA312, taught at Sabanci University, Istanbul, Turkey; attempts to walk you through the long and diverse history of a particular aspect of human endeavour: The translation of ideas, stories and concepts that are largely textual and/or word based into a visual format, i.e. visual communication.

And words are what we communicate with. I shall loosely be following P.B. I am very proud of my heritage as a graphic designer.
Loft Conversions fire Resistance Gyprock Roof escape window Fire safety and escape consideration, like many safety issues are a topic most people sometimes like to put to one side. Thankfully, virtually all are correct believing 'It will never happen to me'. However, safety issues are regulated and you and future occupants will be pleased to know things are in order. Loft conversion plans require built-in safety features for: Loft Access Loft Doors Loft Floors Loft Walls Roof Windows Smoke Alarms In fire-safety terms, a loft conversion is seen as an additional floor extension, a second or third storey which adds complexity to an emergency exit. What is Fire Resistance? Fire resistance is the measure of time (hours) a building can hold back fire. Loft conversions are required to provide half an hour protection. Fire resistance is built in both structurally and by correct choice and application of building materials, e.g. insulation.

Peter Harris ” In the decade that I’ve painted the urban landscape, one name is consistently mentioned when people first encounter my work: Edward Hopper. Philippe Tyberghien ” I am a Franco/Belgian artist who works in photography and makes them look like old paintings (old or less). Mi Ju ” My work is an improvisation in liminality: between dream and concretized, ancient and contemporary, Korea and the West, ephemeral and eternal, the uncensored and codified.

Pietà (Michelangelo) Detail of Mary The structure is pyramidal, and the vertex coincides with Mary's head. The statue widens progressively down the drapery of Mary's dress, to the base, the rock of Golgotha. The figures are quite out of proportion, owing to the difficulty of depicting a fully-grown man cradled full-length in a woman's lap. The marks of the Crucifixion are limited to very small nail marks and an indication of the wound in Jesus' side. The Madonna is represented as being very young for the mother of a 33 year old son, which is not uncommon in depictions of her at the time of the Passion of Christ. Do you not know that chaste women stay fresh much more than those who are not chaste? Another explanation suggests that Michelangelo's treatment of the subject was influenced by his passion for Dante's Divina Commedia: so well-acquainted was he with the work that when he went to Bologna he paid for hospitality by reciting verses from it. The process took less than two years. Coordinates:
