i couldn't see the video, but omg that's a fine piece of work. i know just enough sanskrit to translate "agni jata" as "achieved fire". the firing process devised sounds absolutely amazing, and it's a lovely structure.urban is right, the roundishness does remind... the longtubes they used in the "ecodome" are cool. imagining filling them in place gives me the shivers, though. imagining placing them AFTER being filled gives me the whimwhams. x
Royal Ontario MuseumToronto, CanadaThis Royal Ontario Museum project entails renovating ten new galleries in the existing historical building and creating an extension to the museum: the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal. The new extension provides dynamic new architecture, the creation of a great public attraction and 100,000 sq. ft. of new exhibition space. Situated on one of the most prominent intersections in downtown Toronto, the Museum becomes a dynamic center for the city. SDL is working on this project with Vanbots Construction. The Extension opened in June 2007.
