Thank you Ice Cube for a perspective on The Eames House, my case study building for the semester.  I plan on quoting him in my presentation next week.

the void between the two cottages became the central stairwell enclosed in glass.

i love this home partly because of its setting in connemara, ireland but also because architects at peter legge associates took two degraded cottages and reconstructed them into one beautiful single family residence.

Being remembrance day today, it seems somewhat appropriate to be posting images of the war museum in Dresden, Germany which reopened last month.  New York architect Daniel Libeskind did an outstanding job of “boldly interrupting” the existing building.  Concrete and steel cuts the classical building creating a unique and what I believe is a beautiful juxtaposition.  It is now Germany’s largest museum.
