My sum-up is as follows, and I will apply this to my thinking for all of Paul's (Wheaton Lab) projects going forward:
This piece of architecture needs to be an "artifact"; needs to encompass Wheaton Labs' values, and elicit divine imagination through it's aesthetics.
The following images show where the design is currently. Please comment. Thanks!
My first impression in three 'phrases': Pizza Hut, Space Invaders, shingle-style visible moon lander. I'm also reminded of some '60's or '70's two-story houses around me that have a cedar shake Mansard roof, with sliding glass doors and "balconies" in it.
I like the glass-as-flashing. It is unexpected, and engaging a "what else can I find going on here?" and "this will be easy, since it's all see-through." curiosity about the structure. I don't understand the glass soffit, and that's okay.
The shed roof design (just prior to this one) has some things going for it as well. Mainly I can see it as a "refuge". A place connected to, but separate from the main garage space that is not tasked with being the only entrance.
It seems to me that it will be a nice cozy space in cool weather, and traffic through there would spoil it.
