"Spacial Agency is a project that presents a new way of looking at how buildings and space can be produced. Moving away from architecture’s traditional focus on the look and making of buildings, Spacial Agency proposes a much more expansive field of opportunities in which architects and non-architects can operate."
My two favorite photos from today. I had an early day at work, had an interview, lunch at Starbucks, sat around feeling confident like I didn’t care what anyone else thought, and I ran around the streets to take these pictures. Now I should carry this momentum forward to make art happen!!!!!
Villa Mecklin by Huttunen Lipasti Pakkanen Architects was placed amidst the shelter of a narrow zone of trees in the Finnish archipelago. The main building sits in a small depression in the rock, its sheltered terrace extending over the summit of the rock. One arrives from the harbour to the entrance of the main building sheltered by the trees.
After a descent of a couple of steps, the expansive landscape of the western shore, with its long vistas, unfolds. A fireplace has been sunk into the centre of the large terrace, accessed via a hatch in the decking. In connection with the shoreline sauna, there is also a stove heated cabin for guests.
