AMA House in Brazil
Designed by Brazilian architects Bernardes + Jacobsen, the impressive and luxurious AMA house is nestled amongst the tropical coastal hills near the city of Guarujá in São Paulo. Spread over three floors, the house touches ground in just five points on the steep sloping landscape, lending to unbeatable views from both its double-height living area and large infinity pool. Locally sourced Brazilian teak wood, large windows, glass sliding doors, and indoor bamboo trees all help to blur the boundary between growing and built environments, keeping the inhabitants connected to the beautiful outside world. Meanwhile, carefully planted surrounding plants provide privacy for the lower levels, as well as shade from the hot sun.

Kepler’s Cosmic Geometric Series by Tallmadge Doyle
About the project:
In an effort to determine the distances between planets in our solar system the great German Astronomer Johannes Kepler (1571-1630) determined that the planetary intervals are defined by the relationship between the five regular geometric solids.
In ancient geometry the regular solids held a special, almost sacred significance. Of particular interest to Kepler was their association with the four elements: the cube with Earth, Tetrahedron with Fire, Octahedron with Air, Icosahedron with Water as well as the dodecahedron’s association with the heavens. The Intention was to demonstrate that these geometrical forms were building blocks in creation.
Kepler built on the ideas of Copernicus, creating the fabric of a new system that paved the way for Newtonian theory. Retaining the sun as the focal point of our system, he described the planetary orbits, no longer in terms of circles, but ellipses. It is said that Kepler was seeking to discover the divinely instituted harmony that pervades the universe and binds its diverse parts into a concordant whole.
