I really love these minimal interpretations of monolithic landscapes posted on Super Colossal.

When I saw Allandale House it made me think that part of my dream house existed. I love the thought and detail involved in the design. The interior, pictured below, feels like a special, harmonic and contemplative space. My grandfather who was an architect said that if you design what you want on the inside the outside will take care of itself. Not sure that was the design process here, but it’s close enough when the architect had to take into consideration the “eccentric collection of artifacts” that needed to be housed by its owner.

I have always loved architectural sketches, layouts, blueprints, maps etc. And today I thought I would look up some architectural models. A lot of building representations are illustrated using 3D software, which doesn’t give me the goosebumps that miniature scaled models do.
Architizer have a facebook page that catalogs some of the work in Richard Meier’s Model Museum. Just to give you an example of the meticulous and precise work that is done by architectural model makers.
Plus if all architectural models were in 3D then this couldn’t happen:

I find the concept of Paul Romer’s Charter Cities intriguing, but the fact that they are on their way to becoming a reality is very exciting. I feel like someone in a sci-fi movie that has the option to go and live in some new Utopian planet. When you watch a film like that you know it’s not going to be ideal and that something is bound to go wrong. But now it could actually be a real option for me or you. Would you go?
