I’ve decided to start sharing some of my architectural classics faves every Saturday night (or so). I’m more inclined to actually post details of said classics, so I’ll try to keep it simple and interesting. Let’s kick it off with Chiesa di San Giovanni Battista (1964), by Giovanni Michelucci - Firenze, Italy.
About $2 million to be precise. If so, then why don’t you buy Philip Johnson’s first house?
I guess now is a good a time as any to let architecture students know that they can stop using Bank Gothic as their default typeface.
