Organic Patterns

Jodie's gorgeous snowy fence photo made me think of how much I love finding patterns that grow organically and found repetition in the landscape... A running fence over rolling hills, opacity and layering in branches, a hint of a creek popping through deep, luscious snow...
It is a wintery post for today, but the sun rose on snow covered branches in Denver this morning and I love it!

Crested Butte, CO

Today's gorgeous snowy landscape reminded me of a fun fence photo I took on our last trip to Crested Butte. So many of my favorite elements...

The Inspired

God's Architects is a documentary that tells the stories of five divinely inspired artist-architects and their enigmatic creations.The film details how and why these oft-marginalized creators, with neither funding nor blueprints, construct their self-made environments. Photo from Emilie Taylor's and Zack Godshall's website. Look forward to watching these inspired artists' visions.

N85 House by Morphogenesis

A little architectural food for thought coming to you from New Delhi tonight, from an architecture firm in India called Morphogenesis.
Granted the climate is a bit warmer than Telluride's, but I am intrigued by the blurring of indoor/outdoor spaces, and I absolutely love the overlapping spaces and the central, sculptural stair... and the photos are gorgeous, too!

The house has patterns and repetition, transparency, opacity, connection, lovely light and great texture. The description at the Contemporist website talks of the layering of spatial program given the complexity of intergenerational living and cultural demands of the Indian family, which I find enormously interesting. Plus, how cool is it that "there is an entire eco-system living and growing in the heart of the house"
I found the house on a great blog I found tonight (thank you, twitter!) called the Contemporist that if you don't already enjoy, check it out! 
(I wish I had photographed these, but alas, this Photography is by Amit Mehra, Andre Fanthome, and Edmund Sumner)
