Underground Landscapes by Timo Stammberger 

In the words of the artist Timo Stammberger:

When I was a kid, I remember my grandfather often taking me on trips to a train station nearby which happened to neighbor a freight train yard. I immediately got fascinated by the atmosphere of the track landscape, the thunderous sound of trains passing by, followed by a complete calm. I’ve been a track romantic ever since. 

“Underground Landscapes” depicts subway tunnels of cities such as Berlin, Hamburg, Frankfurt, New York, Philadelphia, Lisbon, Barcelona, Stockholm, Dortmund, Prague, Budapest and Vienna. (2006-2014)

Good wood - another awesome barn conversion, this one has a much more classic feel from the outside but once you get in it’s a modern masterpiece. ‘The Barn’ (slight lack of imagination but I kinda like the direct approach) is situated in the Teton Range of mountains in Wyoming and was devised by Carney Logan Burke Architects.

anonymous asked:

Do you know of any modern public buildings, like a parliament or a city hall or library. Like how would one approach making such an important institution?

Too many! 

You approach it like any other design, asking yourself and the client questions: What is the context? What is the function? Who are the users? What are the goals and aspirations of the institution?

Here are some of my favorite contemporary government buildings:

Parlamento de Navarra Otxotorena Arquitectos

European Council and Council of the European Union Samyn and Partners

New City Hall in Buenos Aires Foster + Partners

German Parliament Reichstag / Foster + Partners

Parliament for the Sami people Stein Halvorsen Arkitekter

Scottish Parliament Building Enric Miralles
