The death and Resurrection of Jesus is one of the world’s most significant markers. The supernatural in this world influences the everyday; we have access to truth yet there is also evil. Because of a perfect sacrifice, the Bible teaches that God’s never ending love can be given freely to those who choose to follow Him. The sacrifice is commemorated by Passover, but it is a final redemptive power. Praise God.
I purchased American Vitruvius in a nice hard cover. When I opened it up, everything was super tiny. The pages had a lot of white frames around xerox copies of the original. I later purchased a used paperback and I can examine the works appropriately. I think the hard cover will eventually become a coffee table book. Proportion is something that code proficiency doesn’t always deal with, but it is a ratio that quietly defines urban space.
A lesser known fire at the Dome of the Rock happened around the same time as the Cathedral of Notre Dame fire this last week. I causally link two religious fires in the same week to arson through baseline reason. In perspective of antiquity, the Greeks had a statue to the unknown God in the city of Athens. The Bible records that the Apostle Paul explained the forgiveness of God through that statue, what is the significance of our depictions of God from the paleolithic to the Hellenistic to the Renaissance to the contemporary? I am pleased by the account of Truth that has been preserved in the Bible, “for it is the power of God.” (quote taken from Romans 1, KJV Bible)
theDailyTrotter does not official back the advice for the use of tea tree oil, but in my personal experience, I find that a pouf sponge with tea tree oil wash can clean some of the sticky messes going around. Tea tree oil is an antiseptic, so be careful with your hands, eyes and mouth.
The Norton Simon is currently exhibiting some of the world’s finest tapestry; the exhibition lasts until May.
This morning, an Australian project proved that the metabolist movement isn’t dead; and, the tragedy of one of the world’s most cherished Gothic buildings burning down yesterday leads to the following discussions on style. Early Gothic is the style of the church that expressed community building. A historical look at Gothic make it one of the longest periods in the current era; some churches took just under a thousand years to complete. Modernism had nearly a full century of vogue, and the advancement of building science within the movement produced Contemporary work like sauerbruch hutton, of which, defines advanced Contemporary. Modernism birthed Googie, Fascist (or a mix of Rationalism / Expressionist / Functionalism), the sustainable movement, Futurist, Emergent form, the Blob, International, and even the post styles of classical movements like Post Modern. In the intellectual frame, it is clear that the Deconstructivist and Emergent movements are linked to classical understanding, which could group them in a Post Modern bracket. With that in mind, the work of Frank Gehry often times quietly echoes culture. Not unlike Gothic, his work is appropriate. Recently, he redesigned his project on Grand in Los Angeles to more appropriate form for the conservative context of the upper mall. I do not ignore the simple parti of the Disney Concert Hall in that analysis. In further work, he recently released renderings of the new Warner Bros expansion project that appropriates cutting edge contemporary form to the expression Art Deco or Post Deconstructivism. It is necessary that our cutting edge embrace the best form so that we don’t waste a world with limited financing and it is encouraging that the work of a leading architect is correct.
The base code (IRC) for residential in the United States of America includes a requirement through NFPA 13D for sprinklers. There are a few exceptions, but not that many.
theDailyTrotter just became aware of the Cathedral Notre Dame of Paris fire; there are brave fire fighters working diligently to save the beautiful allegory to the future with God Almighty. I am not withdrawing my previous post on ASTM C411 because it is good information, but it feels a little out of touch for my blog after learning of the current event. It is clear that this world has something to repair and I hope a worldwide sense of loss helps correct the crime that could surround a terrible event like this. We have a beautiful world filled with God’s grace, and, as a Volcom once put out of sight in trusted shorts: “tread lightly.”
A fireplace isn’t commonly thought about as being a design challenge, but when considered, the common design elements are not usually insulating enough to meet current code. But, thanks to research we have standards like ASTM C 411. While that standard won’t insulate high heat, it accommodates for the needs of many of the normal household gas fireplaces. I was recently passing by a smoking barbecue with a large oven and I took a look to establish if it was 1200 degree fire or not. More than likely it was within that range, but the handling of heat is something of importance. The use of assemblies with updated insulation can allow for better designs in the future.
This week is a celebration of the coming King, named Jesus. This world has God and I am thankful to know His blessing in seasons of abundance and seasons of a metaphorical drought. Do you know the truth of sanctification that sets your soul free?
