Construction has begun on the Roads End Home on the Oregon Coast. We recently broke ground and below have some photos of the old existing home which was demolished, along with some current construction photos and a few renderings of what the new home will look like.
Here is a look at another one of our projects in construction. This photos are from the Bluff House Project in White Salmon Washington. Keep an eye out for more construction photos coming soon, hopefully in sunny weather.
Here are some slides that tie in with our first post about the "Holland Hook". Architects in Holland at this time in the 1920's were working in what is called the "functional style". These slides below are all part of this functional style from Holland in the 1920's. If you have any current day photos of these buildings or any travel experiences with visiting these places we would love to head about it.
Administration Building, Dutch State Railways. Utrecht, Holland. George van Heukelom. 1918-21Funtional Style
School.Hilversum, Holland. Willem Marinus Dudok.1922. Functional Style
Apartment House. Amsterdam, Holland. Michelde Klerck. 1922. Functional Style "The most important architect of the Amsterdam school style was Michel de Klerk who in one apartment block called Het Schip (The Ship) established all principal aesthetical solutions of this style. The School of Amsterdam style was largely influenced by expressionism."
We received a wonderful gift this week from Portland photographer David Papazian. It is a collection of black and white architectural photographic prints entitled "Modern Architecture" by Kenneth John Conant.
It was distributed by The University Prints, Boston Massachusetts as part of their Student GM Series. We will be posting a few photos from the series each week and would love to hear from you about them. Perhaps you have some more information about a specific building or first hand experience visiting the building or landmark and would like to share your stories and memories with us. Hope you enjoy!
