This #coolbathroom was found at The Glass Pavilion in Toledo, OH. As you would expect from an art museum specializing in glass art from across the ages, this bathroom was decked out with mesmorizing green glass sinks. Watching the water pour out of the faucet gave me minor goosebumps as it twist, turned and curved down into the drain. The paper towels laid out neatly above the sinks were a great way to finish out a great trip into this #coolbathroom.
Another beautiful shot captured by @lushanabale at my best friend’s wedding. Check out her new post to see more photos from that perfect day! 📸

#PhilipJohnson with #AndyWarhol | "No architect has any power, the developers have it - our controllers - just as the archbishops did in the fourteenth century. Within our small world, I’ve had influence, though I didn’t know it. I know the reason now: old age."
I’ll keep the Gio Ponti posts going this morning (the Italian designer was born on November 18, 1891) with one of his American commissions- the Time-Life auditorium (1958). At the time, the playful bauble-like pavilion was said to be “the most versatile and complete business-meeting facility in Manhattan.” #gioponti#nyc#midcenturymodernarchitecture#mod#madmen
Designed by a young Victor Lundy shortly after his arrival in Florida, the Venice-Nokomis Presbyterian Church (1954), a glass pavilion in the pines, is an early example of a drive-in sanctuary. Commissioned as a temporary structure for a new and growing congregation, the Lundy design graced the pages of Life magazine in 1955 but was ultimately dismantled when a larger church complex was built.

A few shots from our spread in the new issue of @urbismagazine featuring our villa gone rogue project. An unsympathetic addition to a conservation zoned villa in the Herne Bay avenues. A very fun project, we riled a few busybodies when the builder overzealously demolished the villa, we built another one just like it so it was ok in the end. #oops#glasspavilion
Feeling very inspired after a great weekend in Toledo for our Midwest Design Charette. Impressed by our community partners, our students’ work, and (of course!) SANAA’s playful and elegant Glass Pavilion. Already looking forward to our next visit...
