This tread is for those interested in A/D on any level.

My interest in A/D is nascent, but hope to learn much in the future. I admit, I cannot name many architects by name anymore, but the ones I could have named waited far too long to answer RFIs! Designers always seemed much more willing to banter, about anything, really. Here it goes:

After 4 or 5 visits, this past Saturday, we finally got to see the Burghley House Interior. 16th century Elizabethan structure, with many, I'd imagine, remodels. Notable 18th cent. Italianate wall and ceiling frescos; very creative wood carvings and plastered coffered ceilings. Unexpected 'Purgatorial' staircase...seemed a bit out of place.

Sidebar, TOM 'mentioned' Brueghel the younger: among the mostly mundane portraits and religious works, I found myself lingering vis-à-vis with Rent Day. Happy to say I picked the painter, but likely a lucky guess.

I'm dealing with an architect quite a bit these days. every time he shows up to my house with a new set of plans, my dreams of purchasing some Coche-Dury become further and further removed...

ha! wait til you finally decide on something and move ahead with it, then see the costs associated with everything they missed when they issue the IFC set!
D and I are taking in the AIA Dallas tour of homes today. The homes range from 1140 sf to 6800 sf, all are designed with strong mid-century modern mindsets, and all are in very different parts of the city.

Today will be sunny, 68 and very little wind. A perfect day to explore great architecture and great interior design. Cool

DD, why would you say that? Confused

I was mistaken. When I first read the first two posts, I thought it would be mostly commercial buildings and million dollar mansions. Smile

Better than staying in and watching the Cowboys (or the Giants). Spring Training is 3 1/2 months away!

I really like the some of the elements of this style -- especially the clean lines -- for a kitchen and bathroom. Are the homes that you are touring usually mix more than one design style? I've been browsing this website for ideas, but I sometimes can't tell what the rest of the homes look like.

DD, every year is completely different.

D just got back from a run. We will head out shortly and I can report back later.

We have been buying for Santa Fe in nothing but mid-century modern so looking for ideas.

The first structure I thought of after looking up mid-century modern was the Salk Institute (Louis Kahn), a building I have done a lot of work in (great Facilities crew there)...but I might consider the complex 'extreme mid-century modern mindset' Smile
