Architects (and architecture interested people) among us
« on: November 19, 2019, 10:48:12 AM »
Project of (a bit huge) head railway station for pak96.comic brought me to two following thought:

Is anyone among us (as we are here, on this forum) architect or at least interested in architecture?

I don't count myself as interested in architecture, becausae I identify only historical european styles like gothic, new gothic, baroque or secession. But I am lost in modern styles like functionalism, cubism, brutalism, postmodern.

I decided that building should be brutalistic - but I am not sure if style I used, is really brutalism or any similar style. Minor problem may be in fact that as brutalism has many styles (from raw brutalism corresponding to French base of that word1 to neat style of late years2), more styles are used on that railway building used too.

1 (béton) brut = rough concrete; like this

2 like this

or this

Previews show both wings (central waiting hall is not painted yet). But previews are wrong rotated. One wing will be rotated of 180 degrees.

Igor Eliezer is architect.

I work at an architectural office, but as a software developer, not as an architect (the word software architect is taboo there...). I am interested in architecture, but I am far from an expert. I just listen what they say and decide for myself what I like and what I don't like. Your first two examples I really hate, but the third one is nice enough..

I was at an Art School which also gave classes in Architecture. Honestly, that would have been an interesting career choice for me, alas, I chose to have no career. Wait, what?
