John Watson – 504 Spiller – Back Again, and Gorgeous

Truly a stunner.  For good reason, this has become one of the most famous homes in Austin. It was listed a couple of times in recent years.  The architect, John Watson, was a protege of Frank Lloyd Wright.

A Modern Necropolis

Austin based Miró Rivera architects designed a modern vision of a necropolis.  The Yarauvi is envisioned for the Dead Sea, though it is not intended to actually be built.  Perhaps inspired by ancient Dakhma structures, this is one of the most inspiring designs I’ve seen in a long while: elegant, symbolic, respectful.

From the Miró Rivera site: “Yarauvi is a place where any person—regardless of nationality, race, religion, age or affluence—can be laid to rest.”

Dome Homes

The monolithic-concrete dome works like this:

Step 1: inflate balloon

Step 2: cover in lightweight concrete

Step 3: remove balloon

Step 4: fire sale your rectangular furniture, or curse this forlorn structure for eternity because it has no corners.

Step 5: get high fives from FEMA, ‘cuz this baby is rated “near-absolute perfection” against earthquakes, tornados, and hurricanes.

There’s a great podcast, 99% Invisible, with an episode on “Bubble Houses.  I’ve never seen these structures as more than a curiosity, but it’s easy to admire the design and innovation of the building.
