[Ludwig Mies van der Rohe] Mies' Memorial to Rosa Luxemburg and Karl Liebknecht (1926)

[Ludwig Mies van der Rohe] Mies' Memorial to Rosa Luxemburg and Karl Liebknecht (1926) | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

"As most of these people [Luxemburg, Liebknecht, etc.] were shot in front of a brick wall, a brick wall would be what I would build as a monument." Ludwig Mies van der Rohe to Eduard Fuchs, 1926.

 

Honestly, I was at first put off by the raw severity of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s Memorial to Rosa Luxemburg and Karl Liebknecht, leaders of the Spartakusbund and martyrs of the failed November 1918 Revolution in Germany. The monumental structure — first erected in 1926, before being torn down by the Nazis less than a decade later — is almost proto-brutalist in its cantilevered slabs and brazen use of unrefined materials, made up of jagged bricks held together by unsanded grout organized around a steel-and-concrete frame. It seemed to me too willfully barbaric to commemorate anything of value, so stark was its ugliness.

 

But as it turns out, this was precisely Mies’ intention. In a conversation with the prominent communist and cultural commentator Eduard Fuchs, Mies was reported to have said the following:

As most of these people [Rosa Luxemburg, Karl Liebknecht, other fallen heroes of the revolution] were shot in front of a brick wall, a brick wall would be what I would build as a monument.

Panorama is a Chilean practice, launched at 2009 by architects Nicolás Valdés and Constanza Hagemann.

Panorama, as the word explains, aims to research every possible aspect of an assignment. We emphasize the idea that every client is different, every site is unique and the formal outcome must be true to all those parameters.

Panoramas Principles

The Client is More Important than Panorama
Panorama Listens
Panorama Brainstorms
Panorama Stops for Coffee
Panorama Delivers Innovative Solutions
Panorama is a Group
Panorama is Simple
Panorama is Value

Small village SMALL House for Gudrun by Sven Matt

Small village SMALL House for Gudrun by Sven Matt | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

When Gudrun moved to a small village in the Austrian Alps, she asked architect Sven Matt to design a home that would be compatible with the setting and her goal of a quiet life with a connection to nature. His response was a small and modern version of the wooden Alpine chalet, its shallow-pitched gable roof mimicking the one on the much larger traditional chalet visible from the living room.

 

A single large opening is cut into each of the four facades, providing views of the surrounding fields and mist-enshrouded mountains. The entrance and the living room’s patio doors are deeply recessed, giving the appearance of very thick walls. In fact the thick walls were achieved by building the kitchen, desks, and storage cabinetry into the walls. Besides providing shelter for the doors, the extra thickness gives a real feeling of solidity and permanence to the small home.

7 Deadly SINS of Worldbuilding

7 Deadly SINS of Worldbuilding | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Worldbuilding is an essential part of any work of fiction. But especially for science fiction or fantasy, it's the lifeblood of storytelling. But when worldbuilding fails, it can wreck your whole story, and leave your characters feeling pointless. Here are seven deadly sins of worldbuilding.

Asil's curator insight, August 3, 2013 5:21 PM

Really helpful checklist for the novelist (or screenwriter or playwright). 

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, August 4, 2013 3:21 AM
1. Not thinking about basic infrastructure.

How do they eat? What do they eat? Who takes away the garbage? Who deals with their bodily wastes? How do they get around? What do the majority of people do to survive? You're not just constructing a society, you're creating an economy. People don't oppress each other for fun — usually, systems of hierarchy and oppression have an economic component to them. Maybe you need a lot of peasants to grow labor-intensive crops, or maybe you need lots of cannon fodder in your space war. Maybe your only source of protein is a weird fungus that needs to be tended by specially trained people. Maybe everybody's eating algae. In any case, there's nothing worse than a fictional world where there are elaborate social structures, which seem completely separated from the realities of food, shelter and clothing.

Juliana Loh's curator insight, August 4, 2013 3:42 PM

Having worked on an even smaller RPG project, I've had to build out and consider all aspects of our world both visually and wrt narrative. Responding to situations required designing the society mindset. Without that mindset, we wouldn't have known how to visually represent our world economically, socially aesthetically and politically.
