The Bengt Sjostrom Theatre was constructed in 1983 and is dedicated to the memory of Bengt Sjostrom, builder and civic leader, who was the general contractor when the college buildings were constructed, from 1967 to 1971. Mr. Sjostrom was president and chairman of the board of Sjostrom & Sons, Inc., the construction firm started by his father in 1914.
So excited to see how my friend’s place is going to turn out. I have no doubt it will be amazing.
So my blog is going to be taking a bit of a different route over the next…ohh I dunno….2 years. Because I am going to be consumed with a current project I’m working on: my house. About a year ago I bought a building - a small warehouse of sorts - and decided to turn it into a live/work studio. And here I am, a year later, still in the construction process. The video shown here is the original vision I modeled for the space, and the photos show where I am in the process right now as far as the exterior and interior walls / HVAC / electrical / plumbing. As for finishing the space, furniture, etc….I’ll be doing most of the work myself. I have no idea how long it will take me, but the goal for me is to not purchase anything new. I’ll be finding used items or building all of the interior components myself. Posts coming in the following months will cover everything from custom wooden bathtubs to WWII helicopter propeller ceiling fans to exterior pulley systems.
The architecture of the Centre Pompidou-Metz has unusual characteristics: the remarkable size of its main nave and the variety of its exhibition areas, with large open spaces and more intimate places that encourage inventiveness and continually surprise the visitor.
