We (what means me and Joanah) built a catalan (or timbrel) vault last night. And as this is not very common type of vault in this region and as it did not fall down until morning :) it is starting to make me feel proud and happy. You may be surprised at the size of the vault. Well yes :), we needed to start with something smaller and tiny span to learn the stuff, OK?

Sir Norman F. & his crew just released a new presentation of some Parisian commercial high rise housing called Hermitage Plaza. This is not such a big surprise for me while they do this stuff quite a lot :) .
What really switched me to the gosh mode was the movie they attached. F&P’s brought a completely new quality I have never spotted in architectural animation (not sure if I can still call this animation and keep pretending my sanity :) ). I am quite curious to see what will come in ten years… … and of course, who will bring it.
Link to the video on vimeo.
The project is shortlisted in The Architects Journal Small Projects Awards 2010.
This reminds me in a very nice way the tough discussion we had with my wife on one of the adaptation concepts of our house. We finally picked much more conservative approach. Now Klára surprised me quite a lot while she likes this Dovecot Studio project. We have got still a portion of our house to be solved. So who knows what is going to come out of this :)
