Here are some interior views of the Kiefhoek in Rotterdam Zuid, not far from my house. Kiefhoek is a housing estate that originally containing 294 family houses and several facilities (i.e. shops, water-distillery and a church) the housing has since dwindled in numbers due to the dividing walls being taken down to turn two apartments into one larger one. The project was designed by architect J.J.P. Oud (1890-1963) between 1928-1930. Thanks to @maike_hemmers for the tour!

I caught these buildings from the perfect angle! They are aligned in chronological order. From the oldest to the newest: medieval architecture to contemporary architecture, gothic to modernist! • • ♤ This photograph is part of the Royal British Capital of London Collection™ ♤ • • #tb #click #nowords #breathtaking #heartmelting #mindblowing #architecture #blue #sky #modernism #parametricism #eclectic #flag #skyscrapers #thecity #cristal #glass #wrought #iron #fence #brick #stone #facade #pediment #gherkin #innercity #london #england #greatbritain #europe

The everlasting Tower of London. Its construction began in 1066 and it was amazingly extended till the seventeenth century. Paintings were added along the decades and the last one dates back from 1883! • • ♤ This photograph is part of the Royal British Capital of London Collection™ ♤ • • #tb #click #nowords #breathtaking #heartmelting #mindblowing #architecture #blue #sky #modernism #parametricism #eclectic #flag #skyscrapers #thecity #cristal #glass #wrought #iron #fence #brick #stone #facade #pediment #gherkin #innercity #london #england #greatbritain #europe

Modernist Garden Series Hideo Sasaki (Sasaki, Walker & Associates) Bruce Graham (Skidmore, Owings and Merrill) The Upjohn Company (1961) Kalamazoo, Michigan Notable as one of a series of corporate campuses that were being constructed around the late 1950s and early ‘60s, this vast square of a building was set within an even larger park with serpentine lakes that mimicked the Michigan landscape sculpted by ice age glaciers. The building was set on a broad transverse axis that crosses the tilting plane that it sat upon. The axis cut across the site reaching out to each long edge with large rectangular ponds with a geometric pattern of islands in each, whilst the building was flanked on three sides with terraces that step down. The building interior had nine courtyards that were cut into its square plan spread over three materially themed levels; the top being grey granite paving, the middle being white marble and the bottom plane being a huge sheets of water that connected into the axis either side of the building and then out to the two big lakes. Each courtyard had its own special character yet all sat within the definite stylistic suite that Sasaki developed for the project. Most unfortunately Pfizer, who bought out Upjohn in 1995, demolished the entire complex in 2007 claiming it was too expensive in upkeep. Considering their profits every year, I would call that both BS and an act of wanton and mindless vandalism. Both SOM and Sasaki must still be fuming about this. 📷 Photographs by Ezra Stoller, via the SOM and Sasaki webpages and Upjohn.net. (NOTE: I always remember that much of the mid century work we look nostalgically back at was very much a product of a white man’s world as witnessed by slide 8). . . #hideosasaki #skidmoreowingsandmerill #som #sasakiwalker #brucegraham #ezrastoller #urbanplaza #terracegarden #courtyardplaza #artgarden #courtyard #modernistarchitecture #modernistgarden #internationalstyle #courtyarddesign #modernistcourtyard #modernistpond #gardendesign #modernistgardendesign #modernism #midcentury #midcenturymodernism #landscape #landscapedesign #landscapearchitecture #architecture #architecturelover #modernistgardenseries

This is an oak prototype made to contain a wine bag asked by a company yesterday - it is composed of two large bowls in fact, matched together by an inner lid - prototypes are a mere distraction and often give a different perspective to me on the range of shape possibilities - 🍂 #woodturning

Time to share a little side project... Follow @crystalpalacebowl for updates on our campaign to revive an iconic South London venue, one that’s played host to everyone from Pink Floyd to the Pixies, Elton John to the Cure over the past 60 years. The current sculptural stage structure was designed by Ian Ritchie Architects and nominated for the Stirling Prize in 1998. In recent years, it’s sadly fallen into a state of disrepair and hasn’t hosted concerts for over a decade. This Saturday, we’re throwing open the doors for @openhouselondon (21st Sept, 10am - 5:30pm) to share the story of its extraordinary history and design, while planning the next chapter for a much loved local landmark. **AND...we’re still looking for an extra volunteer to help with stewarding this Saturday, so please shout if you can lend a hand!** • #crystalpalacebowl #crystalpalace #crystalpalacepark #se20 #ianritchie #reeboottherustylaptop #southlondon #ianritchiearchitects #archidaily #archilovers #modernism #corten #stirlingprize

The minimalist Kathreiner Haus of Berlin. I already showed some of it to you in my Stories when I was there. It was built in 1930 for malt coffee company Kathreiner. The architect: talented Bruno Paul who was also doing the beautiful #dischhaus in Cologne at the same time. His style was Neue Sachlichkeit (New Objectivity) very straightforward executed. It’s all about lines and super sharp edges. Intensified by the division of window frames. At the tallest point which is made to look like a tower though it’s only the narrow side of the highrise a big clock is placed. A regular for the 20s/30s with its also staple style for clocks: no real clock face, only the hands and indices for hour marks. Soon this will be a seat of Berlin‘s judiciary and therefore it’s getting restored for use. . . . #architecture #architecturelovers #archilovers #thisisgermany #potd #blogger #blogger_de #architectureblogger #facades #noicemag #lekkerzine #phroom #theweekoninstagram #diewocheaufinstagram #minimalzine #minimal #minimalism #thisaintartschool #modernism #moderne #interwararchitecture #interwarmodernism #neuesachlichkeit #newobjectivity #berlinarchitecture #neuesbauen #bauhaus #functionalism #brunopaul

W Ekspozyturze Handlowej Węgier z lat 70 tych zostały eleganckie minimalistyczne firanki, teraz mają dziury, ale są, niczemu nie służą, ale nikt ich nie zdejmuje. Można być ładnym a nieużytecznym, można tak sobie trwać i może z tego nic nie wynikać prócz podziwiania przez randomowych przechodniów, którzy jarają się socjalistyczną moderną. To mowa o mnie akurat. #details #firanka #PRL #design #decor #decoration #warsaw #modernism #minimal #poland #hungarian #fromthepast #memo

a więc Węgierska Ekspozytura Handlowa w Warszawie, rok 1973, Bronisław Eibel projektuje wnętrza, na dole widne sale ekspozycyjno -handlowe, na górze dwukondygnacyjne pomieszczenia biurowe. Można se tam zajrzeć. Starannie i z głową to wszystko jest wykonane, widać, że kaski na węgierkie ekspozycje nie szczędzili, tymczasem obecnie hula se tam wiater, nie dzieje się nic. Kurz i powolne niszczenie, a szkoda, wieczorki zapoznawcze 40 + bym robiła i jako jedyny dj masakrowałabym gościom umysły Modern Talking na przemian z Jimmym Sommervilem. Na górze bym miała pracownię. Światło by było tam cały dzień a ja bym pisała memuary, jak to było kiedyś dzwonić z telefonu Bratek. #modernism #socialism #architecture #warsaw #hungary #ekspozytura #details #design #PRL #building #facade #mozaika #hala #project #bronislaweibel #poland #relikt #memuar

IBM Building, South Bank; Lasdun, Softley and Partners; 1975. Now owned by Alan Sugar’s property company, the building was designed by Denys Lasdun’s firm as a continuity with the National. Elsewhere, there might have been plenty for the concrete-head to enjoy. Beside the National, it looks lumpen and unimaginative. I have to say that I was highly disappointed to discover that this was a Lasdun. ©en #brutalist #brutalism #modernarchitecture #modernism #londonarchitecture #urbandesign #building #architecture #archilovers #archiporn #lookup #architecture_hunter #arquitectura #london #concrete #urbanplanning #officeblock #archimasters #architektur #archidaily #towerblock #architecture_greatshots #postwar #concretelovers #betonbrut #officeblock #southwark #ibm #lasdun #denyslasdun 17044

Sliced| This one is to celebrate the duality in us all... our two-faced vintage Italian ring is a balancing act of coral and onyx slabs—smooth and jagged, plain and adorned. Shaped like a melon slice, the large jewel relies on a wavy diamond appliqué for its final complication. The result is a robust abstract form. Please DM for particulars on this brilliantly executed piece. #coral #onyx #abstractring #forsale #diamonds #18k #italianjewelry #70sjewelry #sculpturaljewelry #artistjewelry #showmeyourrings #instajewelry #jewelryaddict #jewelrygram #stonejewelry #lapidary #inlaid #jewelrydesign #modernism #accessories #statementjewelry #cocktailring #chic #luxury

“In a Cloud, in a Wall, in a Chair: Six Modernists in Mexico at Midcentury” at the Art Institute of Chicago raises many questions with a thesis that seems to have overreached. There is no arguing, however, with the quality of the art, craft, sculpture, and design (certainly ever more blurred boundaries) on view. Color and pattern, material and texture are at the service of some of the most ambitious, inventive, and resilient artists of the 20th century. #artinstituteofchicago #cynthiasargent #sheilahicks #ruthasawa #textile #rug #sculpture #weaving #modernism

Petit souvenir de voyage avec ce magnifique « Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família» ! Après autant d’années, elle est toujours aussi surprenante et majestueuse. C’était la 1ère fois pour mon chéri et il a été époustouflé par sa beauté, je suis vraiment contente de lui avoir montré 🥰 Petit moment d’histoire 📚 La Sagrada est une basilique dont la construction a commencé en 1882. C’est l’un des exemples les plus connus du modernisme catalan et un monument emblématique de la ville. Œuvre inachevée de l'architecte Antoni Gaudi, la Sagrada Família est située dans le quartier du même nom (district de l’Eixample). L’architecte a conçu une minutieuse symbologie qui fait de cet édifice un poème mystique. Il a également fait preuve d'une grande audace de construction formelle, telle que la manière de concevoir la structure d’arc en chaînette ou la combinaison des traitements sculpturaux naturalistes et de l’abstraction des tours. Selon les données de l’année 2004, la Sagrada Família est le monument le plus visité d’Espagne, dépassant l’Alhambra de Grenade et le musée du Prado à Madrid : en 2012, elle a attiré plus de 3,2 millions de visiteurs. La partie du monument réalisée du vivant d’Antoni Gaudí, la crypte et la façade de la Nativité, a été déclarée patrimoine de l’humanité par l’Unesco en 2005. Puisqu'il s'agit d’un temple expiatoire, les travaux sont exclusivement financés grâce à l’aumône. En conséquence, il n’a pas été possible de construire simultanément les différentes parties du monument lorsqu’il l’eut fallu, mais depuis les années 1990, l’affluence de visiteurs et le renom mondial de l’œuvre ont fait évoluer la situation économique. La basilique a été consacrée par le pape Benoît XVI le 7 novembre 2010. Le siège de l’archevêché de Barcelone reste toutefois la cathédrale Sainte-Eulalie, édifice construit à l’époque médiévale et situé au cœur du quartier gothique. #sagradafamilia #sagradafamília #sagradafamiliabarcelona #antonigaudi #architecture #photography #travelphotography #travelblogger #beautifulplaces #view #arquitectura #barcelone #voyage #templereligieux #worldheritage #modernism #gaudi #belgianblogger #photographer #passion #discover #travelgram #monument
