Garden Gallery: Arthur Casas’ Garden

I have this tendency to glaze over when perusing the sites and work of famed modern architects.  The images (and architecture) are always so cold and un-lived in looking (unloved?).   I make no personal connection and can’t even for a moment imagine spending my life in the place being shown.  I personally think that this is a flaw in this type of presentation  but suspect that I am probably not the intended audience and selling the ideas to people like me isn’t point.

Anyway, I make this point only because I think to some extent these images of Brazilian architect Arthur Casas’ garden have this problem (if you want to see the rest of the somewhat sterile images of the home go here).   The only exception is that those steps made me stop and take a closer look.   I love big wide steps that are more than just steps;  steps that become furniture and their design is so well thought out that you really need little else.  One side of the house has wood steps leading down to a cobblestone patio (on which I think a little furniture would be nice…..but that’s just me) — and the other side has the opposite.  They are a great detail and one that I think shouldn’t always be reserved for modern architecture alone.

Now if only I can sort out how you are supposed to get into this garden….doors?  Hmm…..maybe those big glass walls move…another thing that I am not sure is all that practically livable….
