The House As A Metaphor by Michael Jantzen

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014

Article source: Michael Jantzen

This series of sculptures by Michael Jantzen plays with the iconic house shape in a variety of abstracted contexts, juxtaposing the house with other recognizable symbols. Most of the pieces are monochrome, and use a single material for both the house and the additions to it, which range from stilts, wheels and railroad tracks to clouds and crosses. Minimal and conceptual, these sculptures are meant to interrogate the meaning of the house symbol by exploring how simple interventions affect its interpretation. These sculptures are presented as proposals for large public art installations.

Maritime Center Historic Rehabilitation by Hamilton + Aitken Architects

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014

Article source: Hamilton + Aitken Architects

The Maritime Center was one of two childcare centers built specifically to accommodate mothers working in the nearby Richmond shipyards during World War II. Henry J. Kaiser acquired funding from the Maritime Commission under the Lanham Act to build these centers for his workers (the famous Rosie the Riveters), making the Maritime Center one of the first federally-funded childcare centers in the United States. Built as a temporary structure to fulfill a wartime need, the center remained in continuous operation for over 50 years.

“What do you expect from us?”

This was the very first question we asked a client at our first meeting. The client wanted to open a local low-end restaurant that would not normally require an architect’s touch.

“I want a restaurant that is extraordinary and unique—like a forest house in the city.”

His answer was very clear.
