From alien invasions, to walking trees, to winged beasts in the woods, to dinosaurs spotted in the village of Three Pines, his tales are so extraordinary no one can possibly believe him. But when the boy disappears the villagers are faced with the possibility that one of his tall tales might have been true.
Is Ablarc still posting? I hope nothing unfortunate happened. Lrfox- Anyone tried PM-ing him? It could be a terrible nuisance and drive him further away like a nagging, over-bearing girlfriend, but I miss his posts as well.
He just started posting again over at WNY so hopefully he will be back here soon as well. NY gets everything first. Not only is it well designed and executed, it was built in the early- to mids, long before there was a proven market for anything like this.
He may have driven Westy from here too. I hope they both come back. Might have heard it a thousand times before but I never get sick of it. Things get a bit heated from time to time and there is the occasional bozo who makes moronic or offensive comments, but this is the internet. His urban design and planning projects are rather impressive in my opinion.
Dilworth Crescent is a wonderful new urbanist creation, Toccoa College looks to be an interesting reinterpretation of St. But those churches…stick a cross on a warehouse and presto! A conscious choice to set themselves apart from the Catholic and Episcopal styles of architecture and worship.
The staff of this predecessor was comprised entirely of Mr. Friction between the dean of this school and the volatile Mr. Incze resulted in his resigning his teaching job in the late s.
His early engagement in what has come to be called New Urbanism was based on his knowledge of history. Dilworth Crescent, Charlotte, NC was largely his brainchild.
It was immensely profitable for its developer, James Gross a former student of Incze. This project was, as noted by contributors to archBOSTON, a decade ahead of its time, but the inspiration for its compact site plan is centuries old. Incze failed to build a reputation based upon his contribution to this lucrative development.
Thomas Incze was satisfied playing the role of dishonorable prophet. He was always right, and the rest of the world was dead wrong. This was not due to a lack of clarity, however, but mainly due to his intransigence.
He was stubborn, proud, and at times insolent and abusive. My personal campaign to humanize him ended in defeat. I have vowed to never speak to him again. Historic prototypes were resurrected, transported to a present-day site, then promoted to a revolving series of aspiring real estate developers.
Every scheme was viable, yet very few were actually developed. The speculative work was underwritten by funds earned through individual building commissions.
Speed of execution and extremely low fees ensured that there was a seemingly limitless supply of work. Regrettably, the late recession set in, and this hitherto reliable supply dwindled to almost nothing.
A journey that began with a privileged childhood in Europe, continued through Harvard and Yale, an abbreviated academic career, and, finally, a highly subsidized and ultimately fruitless obsession with urban design has now come to a bittersweet close.
Though I managed to earn a living throughout my association with Mr. Incze, I had no desire to remain as heir apparent to a firm whose income was based solely on low cost and quick turnaround. The costs were set by Mr.
Incze, but the productivity rate was my contribution. My two decades at ABL were not wasted, however. I was privileged to sit at the feet of a prophet, albeit a dishonored one, and to learn from him. His knowledge of art and architecture was encyclopedic. Like Solomon, he believed that there can be nothing new under the sun.
I strongly disagree with this depressing philosophy. Someone might wander by and get the impression that this is an architecture forum.Roy Anthony Martin was born on September 8, and fell asleep on September 16, These 30, days were not wasted.
