PROJECT POW

THAT'S IT , THAT'S ALL . . .

Banff, Kicking Horse, Revelstoke - BC Rockies interior.

It's been ages since I posted anything, but today, I had a change of heart. Went above the clouds.

Looking at these pics gets me all excited even though we are in the middle of June. This was my first big mountain/backcountry experience and even though the snow was complete bollocks in late Feb. The Treezy crew still found a way to keep that shit alive, cause you know what it izzzzzzzz.

Until next year boys... let it snow, let it snow.

NOTE: Excuse the mediocre picture quality, taken with a Blackberry/phone cameras, left the Dslr at home (you crazy son!?). Still, gots the job done. AND I know, its just a bunch of pictures of mountains/trees/snow/dudes with snowboards/more trees. I know!! Just leave me alone!!



Do not be fooled by this sly looking business man in the white striped shirt, he has the most obnoxious laugh ever... ever.



Calgary airport driving into the Great Canadian Rookies... behold its greatness (This was only on the outside, where the parries meet the mountains. Drive another 30mins and you will witness mountains 2-3X the size of these).



Weather changed drastically as we hit BC's interior, avalanche danger warnings everywhere for the next 3 hours. I'm glad I wore my Depends that day... haha, jk.



Home for the next 6 days.



Banff - zero visibility



Banff back/side country - Stuck in old undisturbed powder, took us a good 15mins to get up.



I've fallen and I can't get up!!! Seriously.



Kicking Horse






Hiding in the trees.... REVVYY!!!





Fuck I'm tired.




Backcountry access - Kicking Horse



Terminator Ridge - Peoples meet PK, this man was healing from a dislocated shoulder and still had the balls to drop in on the steepest mountain face at kicking horse. I applaud you my friend. CLAP CLAP CLAP!!!





"CRONDOLA"






At peace. Complete peace.

THE TREESON: MESSAGE

M.I.A...... just for now

Shhhiiittt.

I know I've been MIA for a minute and I really appreciate the emails I've been receiving about the lack of posts. But the truth is I've been hella busy chasing that paper, trying to do like Snoop says and step my game up.
You know?

What I've been up to:
- Interior design freelance work coming out of my ass with my television show peeps
- My architectural design day job is working every dollar out of my salary which means no slacking at work.
- Finally, the project I've been trying to start with my homies out in New York means a lack of posts.

My bad. I know its not an excuse but hey.

Anyways, stay tuned, got some shit lined up....

See you soontime.

PS: TOKi [CLICK!!], I got you, just gimme a moment or 2.

VIBE ON THIS FOR NOW...

MOVIE TRAILER: Notorious (Extended Trailer)

IT WAS ALL A DREAM.....

Can't wait.

See original teaser trailer HERE.

FOUND ARCH: Final Wooden House

"Rather than just a new architecture, this is a new origin, a new existence."

WHAT: Final Wooden House
WHO: Sou Fujimoto Architects
WHERE: Kumamoto, Japan
PHOTO CREDITS:
Iwan Baan

SOURCE/THANKS: ArchDaily

WHY?:

**Text borrowed from ArchDaily and are what I believe to be truly inspiring design theories quoted from the architectural team in direct relation to project**

"I thought of making an ultimate wooden architecture. It was conceived by just mindlessly stacking 350mm square."




"Lumber is extremely versatile. In an ordinary wooden architecture, lumber is effectively differentiated according to functions in various localities precisely because it is so versatile. Columns, beams, foundations, exterior walls, interior walls, ceilings, floorings, insulations, furnishings, stairs, window frames, meaning all. However, I thought if lumber is indeed so versatile then why not create architecture by one rule that fulfills all of these functions. I envisioned the creation of new spatiality that preserves primitive conditions of a harmonious entity before various functions and roles differentiated."





"There are no separations of floor, wall, and ceiling here. A place that one thought was a floor becomes a chair, a ceiling, a wall from various positions. The floor levels are relative and spatiality is perceived differently according to one’s position. Here, people are distributed three-dimensionally in the space. This is a place like an amorphous landscape with a new experience of various senses of distances. Inhabitants discover, rather than being prescribed, various functionalities in these convolutions."











"This bungalow no longer fits the category of wooden architecture. If wooden architecture is merely something made from wood, then wood itself surpasses the architectural procedures to directly become a “place where people live” in this bungalow. It is of an existence akin to primitive conditions before architecture. Rather than just a new architecture, this is a new origin, a new existence."
