amateur or pro design?

I walked past this house in Providence RI. Was it designed by the homeowner? By an architect? I think it was desined by a 1970 Buick Estate Wagon interested in easy yard maintenance

UVAHSC used to have an informal policy regarding pictures hanging in the hospital: “no pictures of empty chairs”.

“…built as an addition to a small mid-nineteenth century frame house on Riverdale Drive
in Charlottesville for Minnie M. Barnes in 1912. The addition features rock-faced concrete
block quoins, a concrete block foundation and a tetrastyle portico without
capitals or bases.”- K. Edward Lay

For over a century this house sat on a bluff of the Rivanna, facing east toward
the Free Bridge. It has been torn down in the last few days. What next for this
lot at the eastern entrance of Charlottesville? A drug store?

framework street?

Ian Lockwood
I wish I was going to Buffalo next week for CNU 22 , confab of new urbanists. My closest approach
was sitting in a room with Ian Lockwood this past week.

framework streets
Ian shared his transportation philosophy, spoke earnestly about connectivity, and showed a map
that alternately intrigues and terrifies. What exactly is a framework street? Reserving judgement until it is
possible to learn more. Does the finish detail of the Duke of Gloucester Street qualify for a modern framework street?

Some new wine doesn’t belong in the old bottle.
