  • Rendering is a slippery slope... Google's Sketch-up is certainly a cheap option and pretty simple to get to grips with. It seems though that anything done in that programme will always look very sketch-up. Take that how you will. I normally find my…
  • Short of setting aside a special thread for those who wish to argue and name call ( I believe in software engineering they call it a 'sandbox'), might I just suggest, as was suggested to me, that if you think a poster is talking worthless rot, you s…

  • Not sure if I should go with the general vibe and fan the fires that seem just as intesnse here, but... An article in the Age the other day (which I can't seem to find online) told the story of a bloke who a coulple of years ago. cleared about 240 …
  • Although a huge fan of bunkers in general, I wonder if some places might have been better zoned? The Wild Fire Management overlay can just be seen in the very top of the map. ttp://www.dse.vic.gov.au/PlanningSchemes/murrindindi/Maps/murrindindi35w…
  • http://www.smh.com.au/news/fashion/ecochic-no-passing-fad/2008/04/11/1207856794487.html About as interesting as a car park... Fire up the Prius and see the Golden Age of Courture show in Bendigo. Thankfully none of the designers were on the level,…
  • I think given the general choice of materials, it would be wise to ditch the vicars and bust out the Victas... Damn, had better find a park, I just heard the bell for glass.
  • Green style: twice as much glass as you needed?
  • Furthermore, at this particular cross roads, I wonder which sign one should take directions from? This:
  • Philip Johnson has likewise already addressed this in built form that's pretty hot. Although quite a success, it did put an end to Philip's love of throwing stones. b_n, I think your idea of building green using natural materials like gingerbread i…
  • We may well remember that architecture is the thing with feathers. Unless it's been plucked...   Plenty of people think before they do things, in fact, I imagine it would be hard to do otherwise for something like designing a building - and not …

  • Mmmh, scrunch, grmmmmedup... mmmm. Well, while you were all talking amongst yourselves, I've just polished off the three faithufl French Hens. The two turtle doves are next if I can shell them.   To think about something is human, to eat said thin…

  • As I frequent the Welcome Stranger on Bourke Street regularly during the day and enjoy myself a good deal, I have only good feelings about the proposal for the Mail Exchange... http://www.theage.com.au/national/mail-exchange-to-be-a-pokies-venue-20…
  • Perhaps a thread of manifestoes... 200-300 words max (200 words inflammatory rhetoric, 100 words filler) as a thread?

    The remaining threads can then get on with their purpose of the discussion of things... Such as why one building is gr…
  • Ah, Seasons, I fear I cannont express myself clearly enough... Little of what I write seems to function as I might have hoped. But it's not important.

    @hairdresser, Moretti, and more of it please!

  • Ah, clause 35 of the Port Phillip Planning Scheme!

    "35. Let there be one measure of wine throughout our whole realm; and onemeasure of ale; and one measure of corn, to wit, "the London quarter;" and onewidth of cloth (whether dyed, or r…
  • I’m delighted to know so much more about my glasses! I don’t dispute the various variations in design due to the expected purpose. However, I can assure you that my reasons for using them (and in particular the cut crystal number, which I still offe…
  • I think the Vanna mod is pretty good. One can now safely omit the lime...
  • Here are three glasses I own. Functionally they are pretty much the same. One I only use for coloured fizzy drinks. One I use for coffee. One I use for having a wee dram, but more regularly, gin with tonic which naturally suggests the use of lime to…
  • I am always pleased to read the writings of those that can define areas of production, like art, with clarity and confidence. If only the “billion hicks” could be thus educated and know the satisfaction of not having to contend with “perhaps” and “m…
