First then I literally took a few I-phone pictures of “Steel House” in Twill magazine in one of those small deli/magazine shop in SoHo today. I have seen this house published in other books or magazines, but today, I got on his website www.robertbruno.com ( please check out his quick time video! and everything else!)
The Architect and sculptor, Robert Bruno has been working on and building this rather bigger scaled steel sculpture than a house as a home to himself for over 28 years now. As his Website opens up and you can see a line , ‘think out of the box’ is the perfect caption of Mr. Bruno’s approach to his “STEEL HOUSE”.
As my side note, I do like this editorial spread with architecture this time in Twill magazine. It was done quite tastefully rather than slap some fashion on whatever that is. Regardless the special connection and relationship between the fashion and architectural world just to mention proportions, lines, tailoring/sculpturing, I do think using or applying “fashion=dressed women in good or bad way” to everything like car commercial, selling bottled water, is such a cliche and desperate and boring approach to the product. Boring.
The magazine cover.

How beautiful all of these are. Especially now I know that this is meant rather a gigantic sculpture than a reeeeeeaaly a residential house. There’s something more ” Pure” about what all of these are. It’s there just to be.
