Amazing photos from a new book on Balthazar Korab’s architectural photography.
Emigrating to the US from Hungary in 1955, Korab was initially hired by Eero Saarinen as a designer, but his skills as a photographer quickly took center stage stage and he effectively became Saarinen’s in-house photographer, using photography as a tool for design development in addition to documentation of finished works.
While of course featuring many of Saarinen’s iconic buildings, the book also shows Korab’s commissioned photos of works by Corb, Mies, Kahn, Frank Lloyd Wright….

This is one of the simplest modern homes i’ve seen in a while, there isn’t much to the overall outline. It breaks down to the stairs leading up to the bottom floor which looks like it reaches a layer of stones to walk up to the second level and then the outdoor pool sits nicely in the back. My favorite section of the home is the long wooden sides, growing up in the midwest which you get a harsh taste of every season; this detail would not be possible.
The team at Saunders Architecture put together one of the most ideal 3 floor studios imaginable. Only reachable by hiking this black twisted tower is sits in one of the most peaceful looking terrains, I can’t even fathom the idea of living like this, its too good.
Stunning images from various Google data centers around the world. I’m always amazed when I see how intricate and complex all this network routing can get, but the images I’m most drawn to in these galleries are the photos that show the routing of something else: water.
The cooing tech seems just as complex as the rest of it all, and they make great use of color to help identify different water types and their functions. For example, in Hamina Finland, one color designates highly pressurized clean and filtered water for use in the event of a fire, while another designates seawater pulled from the Gulf of Finland, used solely for cooling purposes.
A profile of the incredible Goldstein Residence by architect John Lautner, this makes me want to work a little bit harder today. I’ve been looking to move up to LA in the coming months, maybe I’ll luck out and this guy will need someone to watch his house for a few months.
The design of Apple Stores around the world don’t get enough attention for their design. We’ve all been in an Apple Store before and seen just how simple and effective the interior is. Even though sometimes it gets crowded, the interior design is impeccable. Here are images to prove it.

Probably one of the best backyard entrance to a home that i’ve seen in years, I love the open space of the top floor, i’d probably put a few Eero Aarnio Pastel chairs out there.
Stunning coloring on these illustrations from the 1930′s, making what some people find mondane very eye catching in my opinion.
