Gehry Residence in Santa Monica, California by Gehry Partners LLP

Thursday, February 2nd, 2012

Article source: Gehry Partners LLP

The Gehry Residence in Santa Monica, Calif., has been selected for the 2012 AIA Twenty-five Year Award. A seemingly adhoc collection of raw, workmanlike materials wrapped around an unassuming two-story clapboard bungalow, Frank Gehry’s, FAIA, home for his wife, Berta, and two sons found a literal, but unexpected, answer to the question of neighborhood context, and used it to forever re-shape the formal and material boundaries of architecture.

Reinventing the Crescent: Riverfront Development Plan in New Orleans, Louisiana by Eskew+Dumez+Ripple

Wednesday, February 1st, 2012

Article source: Eskew+Dumez+Ripple

New Orleans has long been dependent on its majestic river. The banks of the Mississippi River have served many purposes throughout the city’s history and are now poised to play a crucial new role. The city’s economy has suffered the slow loss of maritime activity due to port consolidation and sudden, comprehensive loss of civic stability due to Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

Record House Revisited in Owings Mill, Maryland by David Jameson Architect

Wednesday, February 1st, 2012

Article source: David Jameson Architect

Four decades after their project was featured in the 1969 Record Houses issue of Architectural Record, the owners sold the house to a young couple. A condition of the sale was that the new owners would respect the character of the project, yet be able to revisit and alter the contained quality of the interior rooms to create a continuous living space visually connected to the woodland site.
