Wright, and a handcrafted mixture of wood and stone lent elegance
to these popular homes. Inside, the bungalows had features appropriate
to the middle-class home buyer. For example, the “breakfast
nook” began to appear in houses around this time, and the Victorian
butler’s pantry was replaced by built-in wood shelving in the kitchen
and dining room. Unlike the Victorian kitchen, which was used by
servants and therefore separated from the main living areas of the
family, the Craftsman house featured a kitchen that was gradually becoming
central to family life. Because the servants ate in the Victorian
kitchen, it was never considered appropriate for family members
to eat there, but the Craftsman breakfast nook, often placed in a bay
window in the kitchen, allowed a place mainly for children to eat informal
meals during the daytime.
Some of the most elegant Craftsman houses were built in California
by the brothers Charles Sumner Greene and Henry Mather
Greene, who established their architectural firm in Pasadena in 1894.
Their most famous house is the Gamble House, built in Pasadena in
1908–1909 as a winter home for the family of David B. Gamble. This
elegant bungalow, one of the best examples of domestic architecture
in the United States, reveals the Greenes’ desire to create a custombuilt
domestic structure that is both informal and elegant.

Michelangelo Buonarroti

Sol pur col foco il fabbro il ferro’
(Only fire forges iron/to match the beauty shaped within the mind)
Michelangelo, Sonnet 62’1
The architectural drawings of Michelangelo depict spaces and parts of buildings, often
staircases and archways or desks, and on the same sheet of paper he also drew fragments
of human figures, arms, legs, torsos, heads, etc. I believe that this suggests his concern
for the actual lived experience of human situations and reveals the primary importance of
corporeality and perception in his work. Michelangelo was less concerned with making
buildings look like human bodies, and with the implied relationship this had in the
Renaissance with divine geometry and cosmology. I contend that his drawing practice
reveals his concerns for the relationships between the material presence of phenomena
and the articulation of ideas and forms which he considered to be latent within places,
situations and things.
Michelangelo criticized the contemporary practice of replicating building designs
regardless of their situation. The emphasis Alberti placed upon design drawings relegated
construction to the carrying out of the architect’s instructions, and drawings were used to
establish geometrical certainty and perfection.

Michelangelo believed that ‘where the plan is entirely changed in form, it is not only permissible but necessary in consequence
entirely to change the adornments and likewise their corresponding portions; the means
are unrestricted (and may be chosen) at will (or: as adornments require)’.2 In
emphasizing choice, Michelangelo recovers the process of design from imitation and
interpretation of the classical canon, and instead celebrates human attributes such as
intuition and perception as essential to creativity.

ARCHI-TIPS


Outdoor steps can be not just a fall waiting to happen, but also a daily hassle for yourself and your visitors, especially in wintry weather. Full basements are common in our part of the country, however, and that typically means the first floor is 18 to 36 inches above the ground. Stairs at the front door and back door have been the usual way to handle that.
If you’re building a new home, you can avoid the problem through one or more design techniques: Take advantage of any natural slope in the land to make at least one of the doors at ground level. Weigh the costs and benefits of digging a deeper basement so the first floor is at or near ground level. Consider the landscaping solution of grading the yard to create a slope or “berm” of earth leading up to the door, on which you can place a straight or gently curved walkway. (Be sure the slope is very gradual – ideally no more than 1 inch of rise for each
20 inches of walkway.)
If you’re remodeling or buying a home, a wooden or concrete ramp is the most common and sometimes most cost-effective solutionl34
