  10. Amazing inspiration images. I’m a huge fan of Corbu, but I’ve never seen his tapestries. I was working at the Whitney Museum when they did a show on The Quilts of Gee’s Bend, and it’s nice to see them again…

    Thanks for posting Jane! I’m an architectural historian, so I really enjoyed the images. I think that the influence of architectural and industrial design on fashion is often totally disregarded, and it drives me crazy! Rei Kawakubo has been very open about the role of architecture in influencing her design process — I wish more fashion designers would talk about this!

  12. Le Corbusier is BRILLIANT!
    I researched him because of a francs bill my mum has with his face of it.
    Thank you so much for getting him out there!

    Jane!
    I LIVE about an hour from Chandigarh, where the Punjab High Court is located. It’s one of my favorite cities, though the city in its entirety, as beautiful as it is, seems a little bit devoid of life until you reach one of the “main” public spaces… I’ve spent probably a couple weeks there over the course of all my visits, I love seeing that architecture in a real environment, where people live their normal lives within this beautiful space. It’s incredibly under appreciated among the local population, but that’s part of the beauty!
    I had a question: you wouldn’t happen to be related to a one Mr. James Aldridge?
    I’ve been reading a good deal of this blog, in fact I’ve read every entry! But I have never commented…though rest assured, because of me, you have several devoted readers here in India :)

    Hey jane,it’s funny that you speak about “Le Corbusier” because in Nantes where i live in France, there’s constructions of this artist also architect of wich a bulding where live on persons.I had a friend who lived indoors and what was brilliant it’s that his flat was constructed as a cabin of boat. Doors and windows had the form of porthole and several other details wich i don’t remember anymore really now…
    He was a big visionnary who wanted Art so linked tenancy the useful.In any cases i’m very proud that you ‘re interested by this artist.It seems to me that you also like Phillipe Stark.It’s also a very good choice.It’s not the same thing but both artists so don’t differ as for their vision of the world of Art.Those are both of the big visionaries.

    I very much love to see where your inspiration comes from. But have you seen this: http://ufffquemepongohoy.blogspot.com/2008/12/yo-de-mayor-quiero-ser.html I always thought your mother is certainly a LOT more stylish than many “style” bloggers out there. Actually I think she should do her own blog ^^ anyway, finally someone collected all her pictures and posted a wonderful tribute to her wonderful style! U both keep it up!

  26. Le Corbusier is one of my great loves.
    I bought the most amazing book about him for my boyfriend and I think you would truly enjoy it.
    The book is huge, which is great because the picture are at their full potential.

    Ooh, I love Le Corbusier.
    Possibly my favourite work of his sadly no longer survives, it’s hardly mentioned and there are hardly any photographs of it. It was a surrealist apartment in Paris, called the Beistegui Apartment, which had stuff like an indoor/outdoor living room, complete with grass carpet. http://www.rasa.net/writings/corbubeistegui.html I only found out about it because there was a short video (impossible to track down) about it in a Surrealism exhib in London a few years ago.

  36. YES! Those indigo pieces are truly amazing. Just the worn out textures are enough to send my head spinning. Have you seen any of the wwII quilts made out of denim?

    wonderful architecture. I’m an art history major myself, my favourite courses being the ones on the history of architecture. If you’re interested, here’s the new miami eco building they’re going to construct by 2011.. brilliant design.

    i went to see this building especially when in india. we ended up in the vaults & then on the roof. The use of colour on the building is amazing and its almost impossible to take a bad photo of the place.
    Apparently le corbusier had wanted the furniture he’d selected to be nailed to their place so that they weren’t moved around. Shame he didnt because the catalan vaults up above are all piled high with thousands of beautiful pieces of mid century modern furniture theyve discarded up there.

    OMG Chandigarh! I was just there a month ago! It’s a shame because you aren’t actually allowed inside the high court, although the whole city is designed by Le Corbusier, so you get to see a fair deal of cool stuff. It’s also a shame because the people who live there really don’t care for the uniqueness of their city, but that’s another story.

  46. Design-build can be as simple as using an interior designer in conjunction with the remodeling contractor. But, it is typically for projects that change the structure of the building or increase the building footprint on the property, and will require permits from the planning department.
