The drum towers are a fundamental feature of every Dong village, and it is possible to find several of them in the same village. A Drum Tower represents the center of the village and the community. Years ago, it was the place used to solve disputes, while nowadays the people hold meetings and gather for social activities and events. Similar to a village square, it is a communal space to meet and socialize with the other villagers. Drum towers can be open like a shelter or semi-enclosed, giving the impression of a small hall. Inside, there are benches for the villagers to sit, usually positioned around a fire pond, which can dry the wood in the rainy and humid climate of south China. A big drum made of leather and used for special occasions is placed at the top floor, but today most of them are not there anymore. . . #guizhou #Guizhouprovince #zhaoxing #zhaoxingdongvillage #traditionalarchitecture #localarchitecture #vernaculararchitecture #architectureontheroad #architectureblog #architecturewithoutarchitects #architecturaldetails #architecturephotography #architecturetrip #architecture #oldbuilding #oldarchitecture #oldtown #chinatraditional #chinatravel #chinesearchitecture #chinatravelstory #discoverchina #chinesevillage #dongethnicgroup #dongvillage #riceterraces #guizhouchina #congjiang #drumtower

Usually called " #Victorian " style homes, a #QueenAnne home was actually the first manufactured result of the American Industrial Age. In post-Civil War America factories that originally made ammunition became metal factories, producing mass amounts of metal house parts. By railroad, these items were easy to transport and purchase at a cheap price! The invention of forced air heating meant that we didn't need to build homes centered around the fireplace, so new shapes and structures became popular. At the same time, advances in paint technology allowed for bright, new colors. This style can be seen all over the older neighborhoods of #LosAngeles ! 📸 @whittierwandering

Today’s Lafayette Building of the day is The Vermilion Lofts! Currently under construction, the Vermilion Lofts, located at 436 E Vermilion St., were designed to encourage a more lively Downtown living, working, and playing atmosphere. Something that many in the downtown area have been aiming for—for years. Designed by SO/Studio ( @sostudioarch )located in downtown Lafayette, the Vermilion Lofts will be comprised of 24 apartments on the top, and a 3,600 square-foot commercial space on the ground floor. This building is incredibly significant for our city, and to me and my peers. Mixed used buildings like this one represent the beginning of an urban mesh slowly being sewn through downtown Lafayette. The success of a building such as this, which may seem a bit radical for Lafayette, represents the growth and progress being made in the development of our city. #createlafayette #createassetinventory #createperspective #localarchitecture #goodarchitecture #architecture

Today’s Lafayette building of the day is the LITE Center. Featured on the well-known Website, Arch Daily, The Louisiana Immersive Technology Enterprise (LITE) Center, is a cooperative endeavor between the Lafayette Economic Development Authority (LEDA) and the University of Louisiana Lafayette conceived as an economic generator for the greater Lafayette region. The project provides unprecedented research and development opportunities utilizing computer visualization technologies for a wide range of potential leasing clients – from oil and gas exploration companies to university researchers. LITE includes incubator office space for several data technology companies, along with a variety of high performance immersion environments including a 200-seat auditorium, two multi-purpose conference rooms and a 3-D visualization cube (known to us locals as “the egg”). The cube is the first total immersion environment of its kind in the region, and one of only a handful in the nation. Also designed by Eskew Dumez + Ripple out of New Orleans, LA, I highly encourage any and everyone to visit this building if they want to experience the power of architecture on the human body. To the left of the naturally lit lobby, is a long, shallow staircase that forces you to take your time moving up the building. It’s seemingly simple design decisions like this that really elevate architecture from just a bunch of rooms to an full-body experiential art form. #createlafayette #createassetinventory #createperspective #localarchitecture #goodarchitecture #architecture

One of the most fascinating aspects of the Dong Minority is of course its vernacular architecture. Dong villages are mostly built in valleys and terraced hills, made up of dozens (up to hundreds in the biggest villages like Zhaoxing) of wooden dwellings. The most remarkable typologies of the Dong vernacular architecture are the Drum Towers and the covered bridges (fengyuqiao, literally ‘wind and rain bridges’).

The Carnatic Retreat is to be a hidden marvel proposed in the wilderness of South India, a quaint property imbibing the principles of sustainability and exuding understated highhanded luxury. Located by the riverside, in the midst of two national parks. The idea is to accommodate humble villas suiting the breezy weather along with having an elegant feel to it. The complex is built in local granite rubble and rammed earth walls with Carnatic features such as thatch roofs, reclaimed timber pillars and corbels. Having a variety of accommodation rooms, the highlight is the Presidential suite well equipped with an outdoor pool and shower area giving it a relaxing and refreshing feel.

A visit to Guizhou and its ethnic minority groups would not be complete without a stop in Zhaoxing Dong village (肇兴乡) and it’s surrounding countryside. Zhaoxing is indeed one of the best places to experience the lifestyle of the Dong People, which is one of the officially recognized ethnic groups of China. The village is located in the Qiandongnan Miao and Dong Autonomous Prefecture in west Guizhou Province, surrounded by rice paddies and lush forests, crossed by the Nanjing River. Today over 4,000 people live in the village, making Zhaoxing one of the biggest settlements of the Dong Ethnic Minority people. . . #guizhou #Guizhouprovince #zhaoxing #zhaoxingdongvillage #traditionalarchitecture #localarchitecture #vernaculararchitecture #architectureontheroad #architectureblog #architecturewithoutarchitects #architecturaldetails #architecturephotography #architecturetrip #architecture #oldbuilding #oldarchitecture #oldtown #chinatraditional #chinatravel #chinesearchitecture #chinatravelstory #discoverchina #chinesevillage #dongethnicgroup #dongvillage #riceterraces #guizhouchina #congjiang #igchina

Today’s Lafayette building of the day is the Lafayette Strong Pavillion. In the summer of 2015, nine architectural graduate students of UL, under the guidance of professor Geoff Gjertson designed and built the gridshell in collaboration with JB Mouton, Begneaud Manufacturing, Metalhead and others. It was one of four built across the US and Canada supported by a grant written by Professor Ted Cavanagh from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The proposal, called “Thinking While Doing”, involved multiple universities doing design build projects to help their communities and subsequent knowledge mobilization of best practices and innovative construction techniques. The groundbreaking ceremony occurred the day after the tragic theater shootings at the Grand 16 Thatre in Lafayette the summer of 2015. Soon after, the students and faculty decided to dedicate the gridshell, the “Lafayette Strong Pavilion” to commemorate the response of unity and strength of the community following the shootings. The gridshell is a beautiful sculptural form, which blurs the boundary between art and architecture. “It is our hope that through experiencing the gridshell, whether driving by or occupying its shady space, citizens will be challenged and will question ‘what is architecture?’” says professor Gjertson. I mean, what more is there to say? #createlafayette #createassetinventory #createperspective #localarchitecture #goodarchitecture #architecture

Authenticity 📍Myanmar Expensive luxurious art pieces are unnecessary when this giant palm leaf is sitting on the wall of national museum. Toddy palms are special kind of useful tree. Central myanmar is where they mainly grow under tropical weather. Palm leaves are widely used for all sorts of purposes from craft, daily appliances to local architecture in myanmar. #authenticity #localarchitecture #travelphotography #exploreworld #travel

Joinery design. Hand drawn by me. Why is this such an important step in designing a space? When I draw cabinetry I'm considering so much more than just the layout of the joinery itself...scale and proportion, material extent and application, lighting, tiles, fixtures and fittings - to name a few. As I draw the design reveals itself.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Photography by the cute @ggiddo ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ #sketching #sketches #handsketches #conceptdesigns #archisketch #handdrawing #joinerydesign #onmydesk #whereiwork #materialsboard #materialspalette #customcabinetry #bespokejoinery #moodboard #finishes #tiles #finishespalette #interiordesign #localdesign #localarchitecture #australiandesign ⁣⁣ #interiorarchitecture #archilovers #archidaily #australiandesign #australiandesigner #creativelifehappylife #handsandhustle #interiordesigner

C3 2019년 6번째(통권418)호가 출간되었습니다. 이번 호에서는 '도시 공동주거 타워', '공공건축과 장소만들기', '증축 이상의 증축', 세 개의 특집과 13개의 작품을 다룹니다. 고밀도 도시에서의 공동주거 특집으로 책의 시작을 엽니다. 인구의 도시 집중이 가속화되는 상황에서, 도시에 품질 좋은 주택을 합리적인 가격에 공급하는 것은 우리 세대가 반드시 풀어야 할 커다란 사회적 과제로 떠올랐습니다. 도시 공동주택에 대해 흥미로운 접근을 시도한 유럽의 최근 프로젝트 3제를 소개합니다. 이어서 시민들의 공유와 교류를 가능케 할 '장소적 의미'를 지닌 공공건축 사례를 살펴봅니다. 5채의 건축물들은 깊은 통찰과 창의성을 바탕으로 공공건축이 지녀야할 최선의 해결책을 보여줍니다. 마지막으로 기존 건물의 이야기를 더 발전시키고, 건물이 지녀온 소명을 새로운 시각으로 바라보는 방법을 제시한 5채의 증축물을 들여다봅니다. 더 자세한 내용은 C3 11월호에서 만나보세요! C3's sixth issue of 2019 shares 13 projects under three special features including 'Urban Residential Towers', 'Public Buildings and Placemaking', and 'Additions'. First of all, C3 has chosen three exemplary projects recently built in Europe to showcase what interesting, even poetic, approaches exist to inner city living. Today’s public buildings seem to aim more toward serving humanistic values by providing a ‘sense of place’ that allows people to share space and interact under their shed. The collection of buildings in this feature show us that architecture can reply to these complex problems by doing what it usually does best. Lastly, C3 looks at five additions with architecture that advances the overall narrative of the site, and expresses new ways of looking at their vocations. Find out more in the C3 November issue! #c3magazine #c3매거진 #1911 #novemberissue #404 #C3 #건축잡지 #architecture #AteliersJeanNouvel #SouFujimotoArchitects #NicolasLaisne #DimitriRoussel #OXOArchitectes #Lacol #StudioHollenstein #PauloMendesdaRocha #MMBBarquitetos #BIG #SmiljanRadic #EduardoCastillo #GabrielaMedrano #MecanooArchitecten #NADAAA #NeutelingsRiedijkArchitects #BehnischArchitekten #BGLA #NEUFarchitectes #LOCALARCHITECTURE

🇬🇧 Just a quick look around before leaving Dubai Museum. Late lunch at some random shopping mall (the choice of food in Dubai is always extremely disappointing), metro ride to the airport, waiting for the flight... Trip to Dubai & Bishkek, August 2019 🇷🇺 Быстро посмотреть вокруг перед тем, как покинуть музей. Поздний обед в каком-то торговом центре (выбор еды в Дубае всегда ужасно разочаровывающий), поездка на метро в аэропорт, ожидание вылета...

The Dikengyuan houses are surely one of the typology I appreciated the most while travelling in China! 🇨🇳 The word 'dikengyuang' translates literally in “pit courtyards”. The house develops around a courtyard dug into the ground. The four sides of the courtyard are the four outer walls of the dwelling, which opens up to all the rooms of the house; The courtyard is therefore the only source of natural light. Much of the time I spent looking for Dikengyuan houses was spent in the village of Qucun (曲 村), one of the most developed and well-maintained Dikengyuan agglomerations, where it is possible to admire dozens of these pit-like courtyards of different size and quality, some of which are still inhabited. #china #henan #henanprovince #guangzhou #traditionalarchitecture #localarchitecture #architectureontheroad #architecture #travelblog #vernaculararchitecture #architecturephotography #architecturetrip #architectureblog #architecturewithoutarchitects #travelandarchitecture #architectureblog #goodluck #loessplateau #chinatraditional #chinatravel #chinesearchitecture #courtyardhouse #cavehouse #chinatravelstory #yaodong #地坑院 #福 #我爱中国 #中国
