When Vittorio Amedeo II from #Savoy, the 24th of #December 1713 was crowned King of #Sicily (as seen in the relief from #Palermo's cathedral) he reached the Royal title, a dream his dinasty was seeking for centuries. #Utrecht #Spain #France #Italy Continue #thread 🧵
What he could not know is that in #Sicily he found something maybe more precious, for sure a longer lasting asset than his title as King of Sicily: an #architect from #Messina called Fillippo Juvarra. Continue #thread
Juvarra already worked in #Rome and Naples, pupil of the famous Carlo Fontana (see pic), an #architect from #Ticino, hence of Lombard culture, of paramount importance for Juvarra. In #Messina the sicilian architect was able to offer his services to Vittorio Amedeo II. Continue

#DECinJsy : (1/4) So proud of my Yr13, Level3 #DEC students at @HautlieuSchool on Thursday; presenting the first draft of their outpatienmt building schemes to Peter Garforth, #architect and Director at Morris Architects, Jersey.

These students have had...
(2/4) ... a ridiculously steep learning curve, particularly needing to learn industry-level software mainly in their own time so as not to impinge on curriculum time to deliver the content.
(3/4) We used MS Forms to be able to give each student immediate peer-, teacher- and expert-assessment & feedback.
I'm really fascinated to watch them develop their schemes further, adding site, structures &MEP before the end of the academic year.
(Remember, they're SEVENTEEN!)

🚀 We are live! Here is the correct streaming link for all of today's discussions and performances, starting with a panel on complex time with David Krakauer, James Gleick, Ted Chiang, and David Wolpert in a few moments (measured linearly...):

"One of the ideas we had with #InterPlanetary was, 'What would it take to make science hedonistic? And instead of telling people to do it, you'd have to tell people to STOP doing it?"

- SFI President David Krakauer sets the tone for this weekend's celebrations

David Krakauer: "Do you have a favorite model or metaphor for #time?"

@JamesGleick: "You've already mentioned a river; that's everybody's favorite. Borges said time is a tiger. People talk about it as a thread. We ONLY talk about time in metaphors." Image

پالیتنہ مندر (گجرات، بھارت)___1120 CE
سطح سمندر سے
2000 فٹ کی بلندی پر واقع دنیا کا واحد پہاڑ جس پر 900 سے زائد مندر تعمیر کیے گئے۔
کیایہ حیران کن انسانی انجینئرنگ اور "Rock-Cut Art" نہیں؟
سیاحوں کے لیے گجرات کے بھاؤنگر ضلع میں واقع پالیتنہ حیرتوں کا
شہر ھے جہاں پہاڑی کی چوٹی پر بنے یہ ہزاروں مندروں کے حیرت انگیز نظارے ہمیں زمانہ قدیم میں واپس لے جاتے ہیں۔
پالیتنہ شویتمبرا (Shwethambara) کے لئے ایک زیارت گاہ ھے جو جین مت کی دو شاخوں میں سے ایک ھے، دوسری دگمبرا (Digambara) ھے۔
اس پہاڑی کا نام بھی مہاتما شترنجایا کے نام سے
منسوب ھے۔ یہ پہاڑ اسی وقت مقدس بن گیا تھا جب مہاتما کے سب سے پہلے عقیدت مند رشبھ (Rishabha) نے اس پر مقدس خطبہ دیا۔
پالیتنہ کی شترنجایا پہاڑیوں پر 1300 سے زیادہ سنگ مرمر کے یہ مندر جو زیادہ تر عقیدت مندوں کے عطیہ کردہ سونے اور چاندی سے مزین ہیں۔

ऊन,वादळ,सागरी लाटा,हवा, पाऊस,ढग फुटी एकदा नाही अनेक वेळा तरीही न डगमगता राजस्थानचे महाल ते मराठ्यांचे किल्ले बरेच वास्तु, इमारती, मंदिरे या जशाच्या तसे आहे.
काय कारण असेल एवढ्या विशाल तरीही सुंदर, प्रचंड कणखर तरीही रेखीव वास्तु नुस्त घडल्याचं नाहीतर काळाच्या ओघात टिकल्या सुध्दा.
वास्तुशिल्पकार तेव्हा सुध्दा होते वास्तुशिल्पकार अभियंता आज सुध्दा आहेत किंबहुना अधिक शिक्षित आहे.
थोड्याफार प्रमाणात तंत्रज्ञान तेव्हा सुध्दा होते आज तर प्रचंड प्रमाणात आहे.
तरीही त्या काळच्या तुलनेत पुढे तर सोडा त्यांची बरोबरी सुध्दा आज केल्या जाऊ शकत नाही
ते का?
लोक त्यांच्या
कौशल्य व वापरतअसलेले पद्धतीचे कारण देऊ शकतील.
पण मला वाटते ते आहे त्यांच्या भौतिक करणांपेक्षा त्यांची मानसिकता जास्त कारणीभूत असावी.
त्यांनी ते बांधलेच की शेकळो वर्षे उभे राहण्यासाठी
आपला धर्म, साम्राज्य शेकळो वर्ष टिकण्यासाठी.
आपला ठेकेदार बांधतो ते बिल काढण्यासाठी किंवा क्षणिक

As I recover from #COVID19 I remember the strength of my ancestors, esp my grandfather #DavidOhannessian, who mastered ceramic art in Ottoman Kutahya in the years before WW1, survived exile during the #ArmenianGenocide & founded the art of #Armenianceramics in Jerusalem in 1919
I tell his story in a book #FeastofAshes & share here a sample of his art, which changed the face of Jerusalem, where he carried over the Ottoman Kutahya ceramics tradition. This art continues to flourish today in the studios of several Armenian families.
One of #DavidOhannessian’s most characteristic works in Jerusalem, the tiled triptych made for St John’s Ophthalmic Hospital in the 1920s, when it was renovated by #architect Austen St Barbe Harrison #Armenianceramics

Architecture is not just about buildings, it’s about society, culture, psychology, politics, landscape, the environment, economics, engineering, mathematics, art, craft, materiality, technology, impact, and projecting the future. It’s about people, place and time.
#Architecture tells a story:of #people who inhabit it,of its #place in context,of #times it's seen.This house is symbolic of use,history,culture,style.Was it always this color?Was it built at once or incrementally?Is it unified or divided inside?So much to peel, layer by layer...
#Vernacular architecture is the architecture born of a place, deeply rooted to the context, created using local materials and age-old technology passed down through generations. The courtyard houses of India are a vernacular archetype for residential architecture...

ATTENTION Home Owners and Real Estate Investor: When working with #Contractors, set your expectations EARLY and have everything in writing before any work starts. Let’s look at some important factors so you all are educated. (THREAD) #30DaysofThreads 01/07
Firstly, I am a licensed #Architect & come w/ contractor experience overseeing construction from small residential projects up to $20mil+ large scale commercial projects. I have been on job sites since 2007. It’s part of my duties to protect safety & welfare of the public. 02/07
Set #Contractor expectations early in the #construction process. This could include the quality of work, progress schedule (when certain phases will be done), & material properties (how items will perform) among others things. These specifics should be included in contract. 03/07

The #PatnaMuseum and the #Buddha Smriti Park Museum, both in #Patna are my absolute loves ♥️the Patna Museum was established in 1917 with collections that would be safe keeping in mind the local climatic conditions #Bihar #Art #museums #MuseumsWeek #MuseumDocumentation #India ImageImageImage
They ranged from Kurkihara bronzes (best in the world) to large&small stone exquisite sculptures of #Buddha #Bodhisatvas #Mahavir #Jain tirthankaras, Queens, Kings & commoners, but less textiles. Of course, the rich #PatnaSchoolpaintings are treasured here. Pics1-3 are from there
The other photos are of the first #narrative and #interpretive #museum on the life of Buddha. It was opened in 2013 at the #BuddhaSmritiPark (Buddha Memorial Park). It’s at the site of Patna’s old #Bankipore jail, and now is one of the most peaceful place in this chaotic city ImageImageImageImage
