OpenBuildings – The Wikipedia of World’s Built Enviroment

OpenBuildings aims to become the Wikipedia for architecture, and buildings and is well on the way. The site is brimming over with information. It’s up to about 40,000 entries which sounds like it might be overwhelming, but when you first get to the site [or through the iPhone App] it all laid out very visually. Find something that tickles your fancy and you can move into more details including its architects, photos, media, floor plans, maps and more.

It becomes even more of an attractive time suck once you get to the suggestions area where you can explore more unique buildings that share similarities with what you were looking at. [MORE] READ MORE

Swedish Summer Cabin [my weekend cabin]

The fine folks at Somarnöjen [Summer Fun] in Sweden are building a line of pre-fab summer cottages. Designed by Kjellander + Sjöberg architects, these are beautiful, minimalist examples of Scandinavia architecture, and I want one. Well, actually I want to build my own version of it. The same “livable shed” concept I have been working on in my head now for some time. I have a dream of a backyard [or maybe some tiny spot of land] escapist cottage very similar to what these guys have dreamed up. [MORE]READ MORE

[my] Weekend Cabin

[CLICK TO GO THROUGH PHOTOS]
My fascination with cabins, their design, and the feeling that they convey continues. I can truly appreciate the simplicity of this structure. It’s quiet and un-assuming, and allows it’s in habitants to really feel like part of the enviroment instead of just something invading it. Leave it to the Scandinavians.

Design by Aas/Thaulow.

[alert style=”white”] I realize of course that I am “borrowing’ this idea from adventure journal, and more than anything it is meant to honor them not to steal from them. [/alert]

Matter of factly, I have been reading aj for a while, and it’s actually what they say about their wekend cabin that has really kept me interested in those posts of theirs. [MORE] READ MORE
