That 70's Architecture Studies

In the seventies, Southern California architecture schools were busy with transformational action. UCLA, Cal Poly Pomona and its offspring Sci Arc were often publicized for their student works in LA Times Home Magazine. Enjoy the past dreams and the descriptive text in enlargeable photographs.

If It Was Me: (UAE Parliament in Abu Dhabi, Like a Revolution Style)

I started yet another series today in my blog. It is called "If It Was Me" which aims to take other architects' important projects of world class design and interferes like an uninvited guest.
As the first one in the series, I took Ehrlich Architects winning design for UAE Parliament in Abu Dhabi and added a public pier in front of it.
I thought a building of importance such as this should not terminate at a median strip of palm trees but open into the sea and provide access and recreational space to people who might also use it in peaceful political debates.



Later I thought what if revolution comes to Abu Dhabi. People were everywhere..

And, Like a Revolution Style

It all started here in Archinect News:
