Balint House

A privileged place within a golf course near to Valencia is the starting point of this project. The proposal is drawn with elliptical traces which contain the program and maximize the possibilities of local urban law by minimizing the volumetric impact on the site.

Modern Views

This program celebrates how two icons of modern architecture, the Philip Johnson Glass House and the Mies Van der Rohe Farnsworth House, continue to inspire and cajole conversation and debate about architecture and design.

Architecture and Influence

“I produced Architecture & Influence as part the Philip Johnson Glass House Oral History Project for use on their web site and in their visitor center. Working with Project Director, Dorothy Dunn, we interviewed Norman Foster, Michael Graves. Charles Gwathmey, Richard Meier, Jaquelin T. Robertson, Richard Rogers, Vincent Scully, and Robert A. M. Stern–individuals for whom Philip Johnson was mentor, sponsor, and friend. I was responsible for selecting excerpts from the oral history interviews, selecting imagery, and scripting and editing the program in collaboration with Dorothy Dunn.” Drew Harty

Bamboo Sports Hall Panyaden International School

Chiangmai Life Architect’s Bamboo Sports Hall for Panyaden International School combines modern organic design and a natural material. The design was based on the lotus flower as Panyaden International School is in Thailand and uses Buddhist teachings to infuse values into its academic curriculum and teach the underlying mechanisms of the human mind.
