steven holl's melbourne bridges
Stumbled upon this 1979 proposal by Steven Holl to span over the Melbourne rail yards with a series of Ponte Vecchio inspired buildings-as-bridges. Kind of nice, post Federation Square, to remember the nature of the rail yards then, though half his bridges span from nowhere to nowhere in particular. The proposal is shown here together with another similar one for New York’s Highline – since made schmick by Diller, Scofio and Renfro.

The one day I spent living with a Bogong Moth (clinging to the ranch sliders at Bermagui) was pretty strange, especially what it got up to with the fly screen… So I can only find it strange to hear that this huge scary moth was Callum Fraser’s inspiration for his latest hotel for ski bunnies, Quay West Resort & Spa (previously known as St. Falls).

The brits(?) commenting on Maynard’s Vader House seem to have it in for his red tiles. Apparently red will date! The article is at the snazzy new Architectural Review site (UK) site. Yes that’s my typo-ridden comment, someone had to stand up for red.

Ashton Raggatt McDougall have abandoned their plain old website, linking instead to pages at wikipedia , flickr , and youtube . Very Web 2.0, sort of. Very trusting too. So if you’re trying to find anything now on their site, wade through the 24 page PDF, if you can find it. Hint: click on the statement of exclusivity/fact. If you are googling, you’re likely to end up in the old site for a while.

Bellemo and Cat’s house and office in Northcote, Melbourne, is an Ampelite clad box streaked in apple green. Certainly brightens up the cramped laneway it inhabits. Apparently the streaks are drived from a drawing of the structure of one of their previous works. Dwell magazine recently featured it.

see more Domesticated animals

Melbourne’s Nest Architecture , perhaps tiring of the lets-empty-the-place approach to architectural photography, worked with artist Tai Snaith to ‘people’ one of their houses with a collection of animals (stuffed, wooden, and real) and related bits and pieces. The result was then photographed by documentary photographer Jesse Marlow . They tell me a fun day was had by all. Maybe they can fit a horse in next time. More on their site .

John Denton is interviewed after retiring as Victoria’s State Government architect. He doesn’t exactly give the current Labour Government a ringing endorsement. In particular he criticises its penchant for Public Private Partnerships, which tend to open the public land up to an unnecessary level of commercial development and shut the government out of the process.

I stumbled across this JCBA house at Wallpaper.com, down at Separation Creek. A tree-like series of green boxes, with the first floor cantilevering off in all directions. Being where it is, I wonder how it would all work in a wild fire?
