Architecture #2 – Musea Issue #196, now out and about.

May 15, 2015

Dear Reader, Musea #196, the second issue all on Architecture, (May/June/July is now out, at large, and at all the usual suspects – including your mail!

See my ideas on the Amber Chapel, Musead the Ocean Liner Building, the Glass Cathedral and more.

Here from the intro:

“I don’t know of a recent issue of Musea that was more fun to do than this one. I love architecture and for decades have enjoyed designing imaginary buildings that I would love to visit, work at, and live in. How drab a day at a ‘box’ building that no architect has ever loved. How exhilarating a day at a labor-of-love edifice rising with gusto and moxie from its surroundings. Come with me and take a walking tour of Tommy-ville populated with lots of new and hopefully – some day – ‘ground-breaking’ buildings . Enjoy!” [Note: Some buildings are repeats, some are revised, and some are new.]

I hope to one day
turn these into
professional drawings
and built models
and finished buildings
towering above me.

Architecture: BOOK ROCKET

January 29, 2013


Description: Rocket shaped tower holds a library of children’s literature. The stacks are arranged along a circular stairway with occasional exhibits and reading alcoves along the way.

Purpose: A one-of-a-kind Children’s book library and museum.

Just for fun: Any kid of any age who loves children’s lit, will relish the books inside, the voyage up the rocket, and the view at the top (to rest those reading sore eyes).
