Marc Antoine Laugier Essay On Architecture Summary Of To Kill

rik also shares the relationship between gapahuk and modern living might be summed up from this song. He stated, "This song was an obscure reference. It is a Norwegian artist, Silja Sol, singing a song by Swedish band Bob Hund. To me, it represents a merger between these two cultures; the wild and the urban. The modern and the ancient.

Hjerteskjærende rett

By Bob Hund, Silja Sol
{Translated Lyrics}

Think of something sick and dangerous that makes you happy
I will read your mind now,
word by word, line by line
Think of something soft and lovely that makes you weak
I will pick your evil flowers,
petal by petal, day by day
It feels so right
Heartachingly right

We do it all wrong in a completely wonderful way. You feel so right

Heartachingly right
You do it all wrong in a completely wonderful way. (Aaaah) Think of something soft and lovely that makes you sick
I will pick your evil flowers,
Put them on a picnic blanket
I will catch lightning in the bottle that makes you whole
And I will follow you to the last drop
Beyond good, right and wrong
It feels so right
Heartachingly right
We do it all wrong in a completely wonderful way.
You feel so right, heartachingly right

You do it all wrong

In a completely wonderful way. (Aaaah) It feels so right, heartachingly right
You do it all wrong (Aaaah) in a completely wonderful way.

Lyrics by Bob Hund

Til Vi Møtes Igjen (Until We Meet Again)

Next, we we will jump back in with both feet on the Mesta Park historic renovation project. I’m excited to share more on the design process and work with Oklahoma City Historic Preservation officials. Ground has only recently been broken on the foundations, so once we wrap up the design process, we will be covering the construction for many months ahead. 

Until then, please have an Enlightened week! 

In his Essai sur l’Architecture, the 18th-century French architecture theorist Marc-Antoine Laugier developed the concept of the Primitive Hut. Exploring the origins of architecture, Laugier described the primitive man as constructing a shelter to protect himself from nature. The iconic frontispiece of the second edition, by the artist, Charles-Dominique-Joseph Eisen, made the book's argument clear. It shows an allegorical figure, representing architecture, pointing to the primitive hut, a new structural clarity found in nature. 

According to the architects, the project is meant to question architecture's relationship with time. Through material explorations of growth and decay, the structure actively transforms as it decomposes over the course of its lifespan.

The structure is constituted of two parts—a structural lattice made of interlocking plywood pieces and a decomposing lattice made from sawdust, bio-resin, and hemp, as well as an infill of manure cylinders. The structural lattice acts a growth frame for four red maple saplings while the decomposing material will serve to feed the trees, meant to grow as the structure decays.

The design of the structure is based on digital cellular solids, a system developed by Kenneth Cheung at NASA that optimizes the strength to weight ratio. Acting as a macro-scale foam, the structural lattice is able to behave similarly to more massive solid materials while using less materials. 

For assembly, 5,000 individual pieces were produced with a CNC machine and later combined into 2,000 'cells.' Building on traditional notched wood joinery, all the pieces were pre-cut and designed to interlock with one another without the need for permanent fixed joints requiring glue or mechanical fasteners.

The work was commissioned from OMI International Sculpture Park and will be in place for two years, after which it will remain only as the trees it gave life to.
