Modernist Sandcastles / Calvin Seibert

“I always had an affinity for architecture which I attribute to growing up in a neighborhood and town that was constantly under construction. Our house was the first on the block. I think that in a way I was more interested in the abstractness of the foundations and the initial framing then in the completed structures themselves. Things I made back then had that incompleteness about them. As I became more aware of architecture in the wider world Brutalism was one of the styles of the moment. Looking at architecture magazines as a child and seeing hotels in French ski resorts (Marcel Breuer at Flaine) made of concrete suited my sensibility, I was hooked.” via lewoandwe

In the latest instalment from our Postmodernism series, we look at his television studios for TV-am, which featured a Japanese temple, a Mesopotamian ziggurat and 11 rooftop eggcups via dezeen

Aire Vallromanes

AIRE de Vallromanes is located in an area full of history. In fact the name Vallromanes comes from the roman villages which made the valley become a roman settlement.
Aire Ancient Baths always locates itself in restored historical buildings, in this case in a farmhouse that dates back to 1497.
Aire always incorporates the historical elements of the space, in this case one of the massage rooms is located in the space used to dry the agricultura while the whirpool was the house’s stable.
The entire restoration process is done to preserve the original structure of the building while creating the thermal circuit.
