    I threw my P+S hat in the garbage. Today I'm trying on my aA cap--does it fit?


    Inspired by the modernist aesthetic architectsAlliance is known for: thanks!


    Delete Portland Variety--insert Portland Condovenience--at King & Portland:


    Brick, stainless steel, wood, precast and glazing: are you ready for the Rob Ford selfiegram?


    The idea: sliding perforated metal screens define the angled "bay windows."

    A few more angles before the folks at aA sue me for design inspiration:




    Condovenience--it's better looking than Susur Lee

    I'm slowly adding more details to my sketches--interiors to come sometime later this year I hope, with your blueprints to follow in 2015?

    As I walked by Portland Variety and Lee this morning I couldn't help but think what an improvement something like this would be oneday:

    The NimbyTect Neighbourhood must grow on, right? (Or maybe grow up) John gets 'laid is a yawn of a mass'n concept to replace Hooters and Active Green & Ross at Adelaide and John:

    What happens when you exit hooters from the street? john gets laide




    Because 100% glazed balconies are so boring you know?




    This john is pretty square.

    Delete 800 Bay Street. Insert Bay Street Bore by NimbyTect:


    Why is it a bore?
    1)It's on

    2)It's by

    3)It's got acres of window wall and spandrel and a cheesy hat

    4)It's got one of those lame ass mixed use podiums

    5)It's way too tall--80 storeys of nimbyhell!

    6)It's one of those g-d-mn balcony towers ... sigh. Therefore it's a 100%

    Speaking of boring, the condo kids haven't moved their tacky Leon's furniture in here yet:


    They're slightly confounded by the big box concept


    Yet sophisticated enough to know the podium doesn't fit with their Apple Watch


    Ok then, time for a redesign.

    The beautiful thing about having an original idea--haven't found a building like it yet on google--have you?--is I get to remix it into something different ... like NimbyTect's grey eh (rumour has it's going on Adelaide )


    Concrete slabs, concrete columns and glass--how freaking simple can it get, eh?






    Sure, it needs an interior and possibly a tower to pay for all that concrete; but, that's what separates a genius from a dreamer.

    Found: the perfect location for NimbyTect's greyed eh logfts: Adelaide Street West near Strachan--parking lot:


    Wouldn't it look rather smashing here?

    Meanwhile, the other day caught me staring at Honest Ed's and wondering: WTF should go here?
    STRIKE ONE - 30 minutes in sketchup gave me one possible idea:


    Welcome to the Suburbs by NimbyTect - inspired by the '60s, BIG and Studio Gang - 21 storeys to rise above Bloor and Bathurst?


    What every "suburban" Annex dweller dreams about: a cute little bungalow in the vertical 'burbs

    The "house" inspired facade pattern is just an appliqué; in section the building is the same old residential pancake/ stacking of floors, but with a pattern applied in front of it. I think the concept of houses put together to make a larger building is interesting but it would be more effective if you made the theme relate more to the actual layout of the building / the spaces within. The pattern extrusion is also pulled way too far out; why so heavy? (the structure certainly does not require such a heavy extrusion/frame); what is behind all those little spaces that are too small to be floorspace? Space = money. You need to be maximizing it where possible.

    The vessel/"building" is less important than the spaces that you create. The volume/void/space is what people are paying for.
