Architect: Charles Deaton





The Sculptured House, also known to locals as the Clamshell House, Sleeper House or Flying Saucer House, is a distinctive elliptical curved house built on Genesee Mountain in 1963 by architect Charles Deaton and completed in 2003 by John Huggins. The Sculptured House was featured in the 1973 sci-fi comedy movie Sleeper. It recently sold for over $5.5 million. Dellzell Inc. was the original builder of this house it was done on an experimental permit.
Finishing throughout the original "sculpture" and the 5000 square foot addition is extraordinary—walls of built-in storage finished in English sycamore and Babinga wood from Africa, bathrooms finished in tile designs that resemble "pointillism," glass light fixtures in brilliant red or blue, carpets cut in swirls to harmonize with the circular structure design.

The caretaker home is linked through a 5-car garage or across a massive, red flagstone patio roof to the new addition. The patio includes an outdoor hot tub snuggled next to metal railing that overlooks all of Mt. Vernon Canyon with views of the Continental Divide and the Denver metropolitan area. Outdoor grills are built into a sculptured design that embraces a copper chimney. An hour passes quickly touring this extraordinary "home."

d0079151_19251492.jpgTerminal 4, designed by Antonio Lamela and Richard Rogers, and TPS Engineers, (winning them the 2006 IStructE Award for Commercial Structures) was built by Ferrovialand inaugurated on February 5, 2006. Terminal 4 is one of the world's largest terminal area, with an area of 760,000 square meters (8,180,572 square feet) in two separate terminals. Consisting of a main building, T4 (470,000 square meter), and satellite building, T4S (290,000 square meter), which are separated by approximately 2.5 km. Hong Kong International Airport still holds the title for the world's largest single terminal building (Terminal 1) at 570,000 square meter. The new Terminal 4 is meant to give passengers a stress-free start to their journey. This is managed through careful use of illumination, available by glass panes instead of walls and numerous domes in the roof which allow natural light to pass through. With the new addition, Barajas is designed to handle 70 million passengers annually.

Madrid Barajas International Airport, located northeast of Madrid's city center, is the most important international and domestic gateway in Spain, the Iberian Peninsula and southern Europe. Opened in 1928, the airport has grown to be one of the most important aviation centers of Europe. Barajas serves as the gateway to the Iberian peninsula from the rest of Europe and the world, particularly Latin America. In 2006, more than 45 million passengers used Barajas; it ranks as the world's 13th—and Europe's fifth—busiest airport. Barajas is the primary hub and maintenance base for Iberia Airlines. Consequently, Iberia is responsible for more than 60 percent of Barajas' traffic. The Madrid - Barcelona air route (known as the "air bridge" in Spain) is currently the busiest in the world.

Renzo Piano

Renzo Piano

Piano was born in Genoa, where he still maintains a home and office. He was educated and subsequently taught at the Politecnico di Milano. From 1965 to 1970 he worked with Louis Kahn and with Makowsky. He worked together with Richard Rogers from 1971 to 1977; their most famous joint project is the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris. He also had a long collaboration with the extraordinary engineer Peter Rice.

The adopted assembly system lets the light flow in, thus increasing the sense of lightness of the building. The roofing is supported by a number of V-shaped steel columns. It is completely independent of the existing building. A simple corrugated steel sheet, normally used for bridge building, was adopted for the roof. The steel sheet is used as a form into which the concrete can be poured. It thus became part of the total structure itself and at the same time acted as inside finish to the ceiling. The upturned eaves running along the low elevation that faces the garden help to frame the view of the landscape with a Palladian villa in the background. The natural light entering the building at this elevation is softened and amplified by the corrugated steel sheeting of the ceiling. Such a gently curving ceiling confers a richer quality on the interior environment. A reflecting panel was inserted into the gap at the top of the roof in order to soften the light coming from the south facing side to make a more pleasant corridor.

He has a long interest in elegantly expressed structure. This is evident in early works such as the Centre Pompidou, IBM travelling pavilion, through to the Kansai International Airport, Osaka. Renzo Piano was responsible for the masterplan for the reconstruction of the Potsdamer Platz, Berlin, and also designed a portion of the new construction on the site. Today, he is well known for his museum designs: the Centre Pompidou, Paris, the Menil Collection in Houston, the Beyeler Foundation museum in Basel, Switzerland, a museum dedicated to Swiss painter Paul Klee in Bern, Switzerland, as well as completed museum projects in Dallas and in Atlanta.
