I don't know if any of you still check this blog now that semester has finished (well, except for marking), but Designboom have just published this lovely project by a German firm called AMUNT. Very nice the way they have arranged 2 dwellings into a very small space - could have been a useful precedent for you.

Paris - fast

I expect none of you will have time today to watch this (see you all later) and it is almost 10 minutes long, but this is a fabulous and irresponsible way to see Paris.

It is Claude Lelouch's 1976 film C'était un Rendezvous. See wikipedia for more information. Apologies in advance for the cheesy ending.

Sadly also used for the video of Snow Patrol's rather lame song Open Your Eyes

Peter Zumthor

A little bit amazed to learn that some of you do not know Peter Zumthor's work. Please Google him. All his buildings are extraordinary. A few photos of the Kolumba Museum in Cologne by Helene Binet below (source is Dezeen):
