Architecture presents for the kids.

Careful what you get ’em!

Although we lived in an ‘English Tudor’ house,
my parents got me

Ah, I can still see them now! I built towers in the basement. Thanks Mom and Dad! And now I live in

860 – 880 by Mies.

We know that Frank Lloyd Wright’s mother gave him


Froebel blocks.

He went on to design

So here’s what I want to know. Which architect’s Mom and Dad gave them

???

Nouvel? Gehry? Hejduk?


Nah, we can do better than that. I know that French set reminds me of a building, and I can’t think of which. Rossi? Graves? Post-modern something. Help! Which architect’s parents must have given him or her “le Jeu de Constructions?”

Happy Holidays,

Architecture = Oprah!


My holiday card to you.

In this age of the architecture world as an intellectual version of Oprah!

Let’s pause to remember the words of John Cage, and, the man who built cages, but really nice cages,
Mr. Mies van der Rohe

One of Mies van der
Rohe’s pupils, a girl,
came to
him and said,
“I have
difficulty studying with you
because you
don’t leave any room for
self-expression.”

He asked her whether
she had a pen with
her.
She did.

He said,
“Sign your name.”
She did.

He said,
“That’s what I
call self-expression.”
