A Weekly Dose of Architecture is ten years old today. On January 18, 1999 I posted a feature on Louis I. Kahn's Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, Texas, the first of many weekly "doses." Tomorrow I revisit Fort Worth with a weekly dose on Renzo Piano's expansion plans released to the public late last year. In this case, what goes around comes around.
Apart from some redesigns of the page layout (above), the focus and size of the web site has remained constant, mainly featuring buildings of architectural note in a manageable size. These doses, as I chose to call them, attempt to locate and discuss the ideas embedded within architectural works. Hopefully over the last ten years the quality of writing and insight has increased, something hard for me to objectively say. Regardless, my weekly page is still enjoyable and manageable for me, so it continues past the ten year mark. If it lasts another ten years is another thing, something only time will tell.
