for the architects out there i wanted to say that the book john mentions in the article is absolutely awesome. the illustrations are sublime and for those that think architectural drawing is an art form - they will be really pleased with the display and the artistry in the CAD work. i'm very much hoping to catch a break, or to find a really good excuse, to spend the time with this book that it deserves. really a super recommendation so thank you...

The first one's entirely-blue roof terrace looks amazing in the relatively monotone surroundings, but I'd dial down the color on the inside of it, as it seems a bit much to me if I stood there.
Regarding the extremely cantilevered units..... That's just scary. If it shakes simply by a truck driving by, I'd feel rather uncomfortable there. Having been allowed to build it and it not breaking, I assume it's solid, but I can't imagine my spider sense NOT tingling.
