Architecture Links

Did you hear about the cave house for sale on Ebay? It may be almost as good as living in a secret tunnel. Maybe.

Just in case you've never heard of the Sedlec Ossuary in the Czech Republic, aka the Chapel of Bones, I thought I'd post these links. And a warning - when I say bones, I don't mean Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz getting zany.

I've seen this Prayer Chapel in Phoenix by debartolo architects in a few places and I've gone back and forth on what I think. I saw it recently on arch daily here and in Faith & Form, where it was given an IFRAA* award (online here. While I posted what I think is the nicest photo (of course - I'm an architect - I like things to look good!), in the end the project just leaves me cold.

*Interfaith Forum on Art & Architecture, part of the American Institute of Architects.

  1. As John Prine and Iris Dement remind us, there's no Riviera in Festus, Missourah.

    But Festus does have that cave house, which is just awesome on so many levels.
