Brutalism, Again



Copan Building, Sao Paulo



Cedar Square West, Minneapolis



Housing at Chorweiler, Cologne



Buttenweiser House, Marnaroneck, New York



Jussieu Campus, Paris



Yesterday the snow from the big storm on Monday had finally disappeared and some green things were tentatively poking their heads out. Which was great. Now it is snowing again and the sky is grey and it seems like another opportune time to post some Brutalist buildings.

Mental Non-Break



I've been trying to write again. I ramble a lot.

Day Off



Artvin, Turkey from Svet, 1910



Peruvian Andes, Tom Robinson



Tbilisi Left Bank, 1980


Took the day off yesterday to run errands in the worst driving weather imaginable (Why does Medicine Hat not plow?) and to make an enormous pot of chili. There was also a short nap somewhere in there and maybe some lounging around. I don't take days off a lot and it is way more difficult than I remember it. Feelings of studio related guilt creep up on you as you stand in front of the stove in sweatpants with a beer in your hand. In the end, for a day off, it was more productive than at least a quarter of my working days.

Here are some images of faraway places that seem nicer than here. Eight inches of snow on the first day of spring, on pizza day? This better melt fast.
