I started with three, and then ended up aiming for 12 (to make a calendar), but the last four are kind of weak and I suspect that I’m totally missing some buildings….
Maravillas Gymnasium – absolute volumetric efficiency
some favorite typologies (not surprisingly all to do with food):
the Grungy Diner (solitude),
the French Cafe (community,
the Houston Dive Bar Patio (friends),
the Supermarket (Abundance).
And a last few…
St-Gervais-et-St-Protais Church, Take it or leave it exterior, but the stark white interior with the stained glass is gorgeous (and because its not a total tourist trap, it is still medatative inside) and Ronchomp also.
And finally, any garden or park that pulls you through the site – moments that promises more around the corner – collapsing and expanding space – as small as a highly designed chinese garden or as large as the vistas driving through the southwest on the blue highways.
oh and as for buildings I’ve workd on, both Villa Tramanto and Berkeley, and a couple big Victorians near Ashby in Berkeley were fun because they held the vestiges of a different era and lifestyle.
