THE AIA’S SMALL PROJECTS AWARD RECOGNIZES GREAT ARCHITECTURE ON A SMALL SCALE.
The American Institute of Architects has just announced the winners of its 2014 Small Projects Award, a prize recognizing some of the country's best design and construction on a small scale. This year’s crop of winners features a handful of stunning residential designs that will make you want to pack up and move immediately.
The design of the apartment is inspired by a melting snowfield in spring, when nature slowly revives from winter and offers a contrast of cold and warm, white and colored. This atmosphere was translated into architecture by hand-plastered, white shells, which cover walls and the ceiling and create a seamless space, which guides visitors naturally through the apartment. The curves of the interior responds in a very direct way to the outside landscape of mountains and valleys.
"Every great architect is -- necessarily -- a great poet. He must be a great original interpreter of his time, his day, his age."
Those are the words of one undeniably great architect, Frank Lloyd Wright, whose visions of harmonious design and innovating urban planning amounted to his own brand of organic architecture. We'd argue that Wright wasn't just an interpreter of his time -- he was able to foresee the needs and desires of ages ahead of him. The architect is -- necessarily -- a visionary capable of seeing into the future.
