Re: For fans of the Organic

Hey Beton, just wanted to thank you for these shots. Hadn't been to LA until a month or two ago, but now I'm in and out on a regular basis and can appreciate these photos so much better. I just spent at least 40 minutes absorbing everything in this thread. You the man!

Re: For fans of the Organic

Glad you dig it, kz. Congratulations, by the way.

I need to take some time to add some stuff to this thread. And I need to travel more...

A worthy curatorial and documentary film project. Dig deeply into those pockets, if you can.

Re: For fans of the Organic

The Geller project reached it's funding goal.

Side-note -- A few folks on here, most notably czsz, have bemoaned the three-decker as an architectural typology. I wonder what Geller would be able to do with one of those...

Re: For fans of the Organic

Haha lord do I wish. No, neither myself nor my camera are capable of anything that gorgeous. And I've yet to do any tours of LA houses, though I will be back there twice this October....hmmmmmm.

Lol, I can just picture you trying to convince the rest of the band into going: "C'mon guys, it'll be fun! We'll look at facades, thresholds, integrated furniture, and bathrooms!"

Re: For fans of the Organic

^ Yeah, that's half of the rub. The other part is we only have one massive van for 8+ dudes, so I can't really borrow it and fly solo for an afternoon. That, and in this case our vehicle would hate the LA foothills where most of these houses are located.

Interesting stuff, cz. The museum in Ordos is more than your average blob:



The Marilyns update Bertrand Goldberg's Marina City.
