Construction progress and perfect lighting make for a great afternoon at Original Music Workshop .
Here's a nice detail from a site visit at Original Music Workshop yesterday. This is the service-entry ramp rail, made from solid 1/4" plates of steel. It's certainly a case of the fabrication living up to the design intention.
As exterior construction nears completion, the scaffolding has come down at Original Music Workshop.
After more than four years of work, and with a budget upwards of 15 million dollars, Original Music Workshop is Bureau V's most significant project to date. I won't go into details as it would require quite an essay, and likely a bit of psychoanalysis, but this project, probably more than any other, has made me re-evaluate everything I thought about making architecture, from process, to ambition, to execution. Mostly for the better (I think). I can say, with much excitement, that we are now roughly at mid-construction, with an opening set for the end of 2013.
Who knew the Home Depot in Brooklyn was this awesome?
I don’t really know Juozas Cernius, but he did include me in a photo show he organized. I was looking at his website and came across this awesome iphone photo montage of old cars in Brooklyn. Its made even better by his use of the animated Gif.
