Built Dublin is a love letter to architecture and public space in Dublin, Ireland. It's a blog highlighting beautiful, interesting, important and strange things in Dublin's built environment, from big buildings to small details. [more inside]
A Tumbleblog in which I scour the web for what seem to me to be transmissions from our very near future.
Dingbats are modern shoebox-on-stilts apartment houses ubiquitous to the Sun Belt and west coast. No doubt you've seen a few. Built mostly during the 1950s-1970s, these stucco boxes often feature shmaltzy wrought iron lamps and names like 'Camelot' or 'Roman Gardens;' some are just downright depressing. The Dingbat project is a (perhaps humorous, sometimes educational) catalog of the Dingbats, architectural mishaps, and other urban detritus I encounter in Los Angeles County and the San Francisco Bay Area.
Spillway, my blog, is now one year old. It's a portal to my writing and journalism. May contain traces of serial killers' back gardens, George Orwell, short stories, gangland civic pride, security infrastructure and zones, love for an underpass, London retro-futurism, Swiss minaret alternatives, how childhood movies shape the world of tomorrow, Koolhaas and Tatlin, Poundbury and insane asylums. (Why Spillway? Why "card-carrying neophilia"?)
