Last week I was honored to receive this email. I guess he found me by Googling "Atlanta Architecture."
I write you from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Last year I visit Atlanta: I wasSo lets have a look. This first one in is near Murphy Avenue, near the office of architects Brian Bell and David Yocum. This is a neighborhood that time has nearly forgotten. Not anyone's destination but it's full of fascinating reminders.
enjoy your wonderful city; and now I am writing an article -I am
architecture historian and critic- about David Yocum & Brian Bell Atlanta
office of architecture; and I discover your blog: Nice.
I send you the photos of some Atlanta buildings that I love.
What a porch!
Love the delicate details on the columns, the mini dentils, the transoms over windows and doors, beefy window moldings. Looks like there are permits in the oval window. Somebody has recognized this jewel.
This is the modest stair to a conservative facade in Ansley Park. From here you'd never guess that the back side of the house is ultra modern.
What was Norberto thinking? I'd say that this 4-square is still getting the job done perhaps after a variety of assignments. Who doesn't love the picket fence on the wall.
Getting down to the details: Diamond lights and impossibly proportioned shutters make the whole window into something else, just something else. And what about the brick coins?
Are there repurposed IHOPs (International House Of Pancakes) in Argentina? I hope so.
Thanks so much Norberto. Hope you get back to Atlanta.
