    The Tower of David in Caracas, Venezuela. An unfinished would-be world trade center that was taken over by poor squatters and turn into a favela housing over 3,000 people and run by gangs. Quite an emblem for everything that's gone wrong in this country and Latin America in general.

    Default Hotel Forum in Cracow

    Opened in 1989, closed in 2002. Now it is abandoned apart from ball rooms on ground floor where some gigs (including Unsound Festival) take place.

    Looks like IKEA is taking a page from H&M. What do you think of that, Shucks?

    Depends on what you're looking for. If you're looking for a nice catalogue of his works, without commentary, Taschen should do it. There is one by Steidl but didn't handle it - I mention it because I know you appreciate that publisher

    Not a solo book or retrospective on Ando, but on a group of islands in the japan sea with buildings by sanaa and ando, among others.
    Sometimes I enjoy reading about sorroundings of architecture more than about architecture itself. And this is an especially interesting context.

    There's also an exhibition catalogue "architecture of silence" which is supposed to be good, but I didn't handle it so far.

    That Sou Fujimoto glass house was on an episode of Extreme Homes on HGTV (terrible show, I was on a binge of bad tv shows on Netflix). It's an interesting house, pretty much zero privacy.

    Was in Seattle a couple months back, snapped a quick picture w/ my phone of the Seattle Central Library by Rem Koolhaas & Joshua Prince-Ramus



    Tokyo National Museum, Gallery of Horyuji Treasures by Yoshio Taniguchi.

    I don't know if this was posted before, has anyone flipped through Cosmic Communist Constructions Photographed by Frederic Chaubin. I picked it up a few years ago. Soviet area architecture was pretty amazing.

    I just got the Taschen one, it's the most comprehensive. I don't like Taschen books, but sometimes I get them out of necessity. Going to buy their Caravaggio book, also because it seems this most comprehensive.

    years ago a well-known member here (don't remember his name) posted a few pictures of his apartment which i saved, but as some jpgs just vanish, i'd want to check them out again. i guess photobucket took them down, and now i can't even remember the fucking thread. urhg. i don't remember his name, i remember his apartment as very white, i think even the floors, minimalist interior with just a few items - in one of the rooms with what i think was a fireplace there was also this boat lamp, and he showed pictures of his kitchen and bedroom too as far as i can remember. does it ring any bells to anyone?

    Haus Wittgenstein

    Always a personal favourite of mine; Margaret Wittgenstein's house. Designed in part by Ludwig Wittgenstein, but mostly the work of Paul Engelmann. I (Unlike Ludwig) enjoy the modernist austerity greatly.

    Default Laurent Kronental's Brutalist Paris

    Laurent Kronental was born in 1987. He lives and works in Paris (France). Self-taught photographer, he discovers photography in China during a stay of several months in Beijing. He has been captivated by the big metropolises there and by the variety of their architectures, their inhabitants, the way they tame the space and their personal stories. He has developed from 2011 to 2015 his first artistic series, "Souvenir d'un Futur", on the elderly living in the large estates of the Paris region. The photographer intends to question us on the condition of seniors in these places in highlighting a sometimes neglected generation. He pushes forward another look on often underestimated suburban areas whose walls seem slowly get older and carry with them the memory of a modernist utopia.

    "Souvenir d'un Futur" was nominated and distinguished in international photographic prizes. In 2015, this series allowed Laurent Kronental to win "la Bourse du Talent" in the category landscape. He has been then exhibited at the Bibliothèque Nationale de France which has integrated his images into its photographic collection. The photographer has been selected and rewarded in 2016 to the Festival Circulations (Festival of young European photography) where he received the audience award. He was also finalist of the Lens Culture Exposure Awards in the same year. His work has been exhibited in Paris, Moscow, London, Athens, Seoul and published in numerous magazines in France and abroad including The Washington Post, The British Journal of Photography, The Guardian, National Geographic, Wired, CNN, Le Monde, L'Obs.

    Cristiano Bianchi and Kristina Drapić have photographed architecture across the capital of North Korea for their book Model City Pyongyang. Here they reveal six of the most interesting buildings in the city.

    Model City Pyongyang contains more than 200 pictures of the North Korean capital, which is described by Bianchi as an "open-air museum of socialist architecture".

    Italian architects Bianchi and Drapić decided to photograph Pyongyang after being surprised by the variety and colour of the architecture in the city following a visit in 2015.

    "Pyongyang certainly delivered and we were fascinated by three elements: the 'total planning', which was largely recognisable through the city, the surprising colourful urban environment, which was totally unexpected," Bianchi told Dezeen.

    "We had in our mind the greyness of soviet-era cities and what we call the perception of a 'fictional reality', which later inspired the photography concept."

    Architectural photographer Richard Chivers has captured images of gas holders from across England to create a visual record of the remaining examples of the structures.

    Chivers decided to photograph the gas holders – large structures that were used to store natural gas – as many of them are under threat of demolition.
