Architecture is not about space…

And there are folks who tile (funny vitrified tiles are in fashion these days) the space that they are going to spend their life in coz of lack of time! Funny!

Reminder.

Architecture is not about space but about time.
– Vito Acconci

That is Teakwood Sandstone! Gorgeous for outdoors, or wall-cladding.

Hill-shaped building

Transamerica Pyramid San Francisco

We are not ‘architects’. But since we supply material to building projects, it isn’t hard to keep wondering about the shapes these buildings take.

Of course, we don’t have a say in anything related to shapes whatsoever. We are mere suppliers of flooring material. At best, we may have a say in ‘quality’ of the flooring material we supply.

Why must a building always feel like a cuboid block? An efficiency-based answer is the best I can muster. That’s it. No more.

I would like buildings that are hill-shaped. We like hills, right? We love hills. If not hill-like they can at least turn out triangle-shaped if they have to be skyscrapers.

These guys in San Francisco named it Pyramid! Alright, let’s bear with it.
