Five philosophical phases (LAPC)

Above/featured: Earth, water, and wood in the Canadian Southwest: Capilano river watershed north of Vancouver, BC – 16 May 2014 (6D1).

The five phases or elements in Chinese philosophy, 五行, have been around in some form since at least 200 BC/BCE. If they began from a philosophical or astrological attempt to describe and connect various kinds of observed phenomena, I’ll bring that forward to present-day observations, and tie them to scientific processes and achievements of human creativity or ingenuity.

  1. EARTH – Northern Chile
  2. FIRE – Big Island of Hawai’i
  3. METAL – Christchurch
  4. WATER – Iguacu Falls
  5. WOOD – Lake Constance

As always, images are best seen on the widest screen possible, as the physical size of a mobile screen is simply too small.

Something different / etwas anders (LAPC)

Above/featured: Intersecting with Ian Wallace: Vancouver Art Gallery – 23 May 2017.

The Oxford Dictionary defines different as:

•   not the same as another or each other; unlike in nature, form, or quality.
•   novel and unusual.
•   distinct; separate.

A first glance at something seen might be good enough at the outset, but a photograph excels at the magic of a moment. Okay, it’s not always magic, and sometimes it’s more than the singularity of an event. Glance at these images and it’s possible you’ll proceed without additional examination, but if you stop for another look, you might find yourself asking questions.

Tracers of human & geologic history (LAPC)

Above/featured: Muzeum station, Prague metro line C – 8 Nov 2016 (HL).

The Oxford Dictionary defines history as:

•   study of past events, particularly in human affairs;
•   whole series of past events connected with a particular person or thing;
•   a continuous chronological record of key or public events or of a particular trend or institution.

I provide the following examples of tangible traces of past societies and signs of present-day activity. I tried here to avoid elements of or imprints by historic architectural or building styles which was presented here in a previous LAPC.

  1. Canada: Vancouver
  2. Czech Republic: Prague
  3. Germany: Berlin
  4. Germany: Blaubeuren
  5. Germany: Frankfurt am Main
  6. Germany: Leipzig
  7. Germany: Worms (Warmaisa)
  8. México: Ciudad de México
  9. New Zealand: Wellington
  10. USA: Albuquerque, NM
  11. USA: Grand Canyon, AZ

Global Architectonics (LAPC)

Above/featured: Ruferin (caller) sculpture by Othmar Schimkowitz, roof and corner of Otto Wagner’s Musenhaus – Vienna, 18 May 2018 with 6D1 (more here).

Architectonics is a noun which represents “the scientific study of the art and practice of design and construction of buildings.” And by analogy with (plate-) tectonics, key figures and their subsequent creations have shaped architectural ideas and trends around the world. In the following locations, I’ve chosen specific buildings or structures over generic cityscapes.

  1. Austria: Innsbruck
  2. Austria: Vienna
  3. Canada: Burnaby
  4. Czech Republic: Prague
  5. Germany: Alfeld
  6. Germany: Dessau
  7. Germany: Hamburg
  8. Germany: Magdeburg
  9. Germany: Munich
  10. Germany: Rothenburg ob der Tauber
  11. New Zealand: Wellington
  12. USA: Grand Canyon
  13. USA: Seattle
