Oda Pälmke: Good, Bad and Ugly Houses/Quite Good Houses

Dear friends and loyal readers, I thought after working for these and those during summer I would have much more time again in autumn for my blog, to report about the novelties I found at the Book Fair, to make lots of interviews and reviews, to post lists with useful links to picture book publishers and online bookstores, to start a new column etc. Now another 300 pages are laying on my desk - so I will do all these specials ... in a little while ... Anyway, here are some snapshots from a very nice book I've found in the bookshelf of a very good friend:

"The models presented were made from 2006-2008 as the results of the assignment cycle titled 'Design the house!' in the context of the lecture series 'Idee Idee Idee' of the Fundamentals of Architecture chair of the TU Dortmund." Author: Oda Pälmke. In Collaboration with: Rabea Köster.

"Quite Good Houses", the second book by Berlin architect Oda Pälmke, was published in 2011 by Jovis Verlag as well. It's about so-called everyday architecture. They are quite charming these "ordinary" houses and everyone has its own "personality". To browse this book click here.
