Why.

I am so terribly I’ll atm, it’s because of my M.E. which i’ve had since 2007.

This time it’s especially hard because I’m with my family in England, we’re in Norfolk, and I am too fatigued to join in on daily outings and late dinners.

It makes me really flat.

I know it has something to do with pushing myself in London last week. I went to Canterbury Cathedral (Henry Yevele), saw two of my best friends and went to my mentor’s office. The last of which I am still in awe of. In a apartment they are designing they have created these magnificent tesselated columns made out of gold backed crystal made in the Czech Republic.

-I’m sorry but that’s all I have in me writing wise. I need a rest. Goodnight and goodmorning.-

Hôtel Tassel, Brussels
Victor Horta

Hôtel Tassel 1893-1894 by Vicotr Horta, is said to be the first true Art Nouveau building thanks to the composition of the plan and the highly decorative detailing. Horta’s decorative style influenced many European Art Nouveau buildings.

Highrise of Homes. Designed by James Wines (SITE Group). (1981) [Ink, wash and charcoal drawing]

This housing structure offers apartment dwellers the unique advantages of garden space and personalized architectural identity in a multi-story condominium. The building is a steel and concrete matrix supporting a vertical community of private homes, clustered into village-like communities on each floor. One of the objectives is to offer a ‘choice, chance and change’ alternative to conventional housing blocks in the cityscape - replacing this imposed anonymity with an anti-formalist collage of indeterminacy, idiosyncrasy and cultural diversity created by the residents themselves.
