I have a few questions about various styles of commercial architecture in America. Here's the first one: When is it safe to label a commercial building as "vernacular" as opposed to an actual style? How subdued does whatever style the building was modeled after need to be in order to accurately draw the line?

There would be no roofs of a hundred hills & valleys. No pointless bumpouts or useless Tuscan porches. No embellishments which are costly or get in the way. No stone tile, no granite, no stainless steel, no beige or dark gray.

Instead, soft pastels to look restful and inviting. Windows of slim aluminum frames. Garage doors that blend with the house, rather than a glaring box. Interiors trimmed with stained wood. Sidewalks away from curbs, with trees in the gap between.

No "open concept" plans. Kitchens are separate rooms. Windows are planned for light & cross-ventilation. Formal living & informal family rooms. Bedrooms soundproofed from public rooms.

The houses would be ranches of various styles, such as Storybook, Asian, Spanish, Polynesian & French Provincial. Diverse, yet complementary. Nice to look at, and to live in.

9c3dcf  No.201


>trees between sidewalks and street

I've never thought of that before. Considering that there's just one road, so you don't have a divider to plant them on, and the fact that you can't just force people to pant trees on their own lots, that sounds like a great solution. As for open concept, I hate it too. Why would anyone EVER want to have their living room be part of their kitchen and dining room? The living room is separate for a reason, and "open" does not equal better. Soundproofed rooms are also extremely important, and also something that's been a rare occurrence for decades now, seeing as how houses in America are just carelessly slapped together with the cheapest materials available. Building quality should always come first, but unfortunately, modern developers say otherwise.

c47908  No.202


The tree thing was actually pretty common in the early part of the 20th century, and though it's rarer now, some recent areas have it as well.

The only reason the public wants "open concept" is because the industry tells them they want it. That's how trends work; hate what you have, buy what we tell you to, rinse & repeat. Form and function have been replaced by pursuit of profit and societal control.

Hey /arch/ I just got one of these as a first home, I know its a split-level / split-foyer style thingy, but does it actually have a specific style name? I cant find anything online even close to it.

Built in 1965 in Ohio.

The house wasn't really built in any specific style. The closest thing you could compare it to is a split-level Ranch, but even that's pushing it.

Kinda looks like a split-level foursquare.

It's an odd mid-century mix of prairie and colonial styles, but that's not a bad thing.

Looks like mid-30s maybe? Glazed exterior block.. maybe it's an older building with a modern facelift done in the 30s.

Castle style architecture was pretty popular in the 20s..

I'm two years and four months too late, but that's Sullivanesque.


And that one is a lower-budget example of Tudor Revival. During the Eclectic era, it was very popular (and also considered to be extremely tacky by critics) to design otherwise-generic commercial buildings with various vague references to Medieval European styles.


The proper name for this style is "Collegiate Gothic".

Let's see if I can manage to point out every style that this house is a combination of.

>Tudor chimneys, patterned brickwork, diamond muntins, and shape of right bay (parapet gable above two-story bay window), which is complete with battlements and gargoyles

>French Chateau parapet above wall dormer on the left, as well as a tall French roof behind it

>Italian or Spanish roof tiles

>Romanesque rustication on turret, the turret itself is a feature of both Romanesque and Queen Anne, and the parapet on the right of the house is both a Romanesque and Tudor feature

>Federal-style muntins on turret

>Renaissance arch above alcove in the middle of the house, and another one above the two-story bay window on the right

>vaguely-classical portico

>Adam-style mouldings, although the Adam style isn't actually a style of architecture

>house is arranged in Queen Anne format

Because another decade did it. There's a word for that now. It's called "dated". What this word means is that if another decade does something, we're never allowed to do it again.

Sounds stupid right?

It gets worse. Most of today's public is brainwashed so when they encounter something "dated" their instant reaction is to destroy it and replace with something "fresh" and "modern" (meaningless buzzwords) even if the replacement is inferior. "Who cares if that library is earthquake-proof, beautifully decorated and brilliantly laid out? Gut it/tear it down, it's so '80s!"

Not to mention the Googie style and its most emblematic member (John Lautner) were villifyed by the International Style clique (the Globalists Jews) in the middle of Los Angeles (Tel Aviv West), so any mention of the trend is seen as trying to make a clown house

These days it's seen as a joke and kitsch, but being inside the UFO one and near the Acapulco Beach Mansion i can truly say they are flashy as hell, instant boner being in those sites, and they aren't badly made, or even faked

I'd say that's Modern mainly because of the composition of space and the rejection of expressed structure. The Brutalist movement arose from Moderism when the modernists started searching for a more pure expression of structure as a form-making logic. So it's easy to confuse the two. It's not always true that a massive concrete building is Brutalist. Even though this is a contemporary building the Modern aesthetic still persists.

Thank God someone else made it

Big note to Paul Rudolph, guy might've been a giant fag but he did a lot of relevant stuff, shame he never got the attention many others got with the Jewtzker


I think it's basically about an expressive/meaningful, highly functional structure made with poured-in material with little to none ornaments, in this case the most accesible pour-in material would be concrete, to try and make it homogenous and united as an whole by the mere eye

Basically trying to turn a building into a sculpture while also not dooming it to be a monument, i guess with the new resin/big 3D printed pieces some small european hipster structures can be said to be brutalist in its elemental meaning
