Sorry I distracted the Love thread!

I will flesh this out (haha maybe this is the love thread) later tonight, but I didn't want to be responsible for too much sidetracking.

Are you interested in cool architecture? Historic or modern? Both?

Fascinating landscape design?

Stunning interiors? Minimalist interiors?

    I don't know a ton about architecture, but I love cool buildings and landscapes, and want to design and build my own home one day, so I am totally going to hang out here and hopefully learn some things.

    Central Park - did you know??
    37qul3ag19i4.jpg

    Did you know Central Park was the first American Park to be designed for commoners and the rich to walk alongside? He was inspired after seeing Birkenhead Park in Merseyside, England aka 'The People's Park'. The paths of the park are really interesting because at the time it was common for the circulation in public parks to be divided into paths for pedestrians, bridleways and carriages, such Avenue de l’Imperatrice in Bois de Boulonge, Paris where the paths were separate. Central Park was to designed the paths parallel so that those who used the pedestrian walks would be close to those who used the bridle and carriage paths, so the poor could see the rich - it was revolutionary for the time!

    See these cool carvings in the staircase balustrades?

    al9h4d20s1jk.jpg

    The designers knew poor people couldn't read and write so they had the seasons, nature, images of laborers and farmers dotted around to show that they were important and could learn things without needing to read and write - which was unheard of at time!

    There is so much more, but I won't go on.

    2d = CAD 2015 (though it was started in 12)
    3d = Revit 2015

    The exterior box shot is just shaded which is why it looks so funky. The (partial) kitchen is rendered with custom materials. The floor is actually a jpeg of someones recycled pallet flooring (which my house will have)

    The counters will be stainless steel with the backsplash connected to make one piece. No caulking to replace! It'll also be curved slightly at the joint so water cannot pool.

    basically all predesigned homes have the ensuite bathroom bigger than the main bathroom, usually because there's a bath in there and the main bathroom just has a shower.

    which is silly, because kids take baths more than adults, unless it's a giant couples bath which it usually isn't.

    no no! Go on!

    oh well, there's other cool stuff like even though it was designed to be accessible for the poor it made the land value around CP skyrocket so the poor then lived miles away and that kinda defeats the object. They also kicked a load of people living in shanty towns off the land which sucks.

    There was the Sheep Lawn which is a long stretch of grass with sheep to look like the beautiful calming pastures of Europe, but for the first 70 years or so people weren't allowed on it, which to our modern minds seems so odd!

    The statues were also off important people from countries where people were immigrating from to show "hey we recognise you guys as part of New York!" including Indian Hunter which was a statue of a Native American with the actual features of a Native American rather than a guy with European Features dressed up in Native American clothes, which was really unusual for the time because Native Americans were still undergoing so much rubbish at the time.

    As you can tell I recently did an essay on CP and thought it was cool.
