hello LOHA

Lorcan O'Herlihy Architects (LOHA) is an architecture and design firm based in California. Their work is stunning (and their website is pretty nifty too!). I've only checked out their residential designs so far and had a hard time choosing a favorite, but the exterior (above) and view! (below) of the Lexton MacCarthy Residence (click the Lm on their 'periodic table of elements' on their website) really caught my eye.

Also of note: I'm not one for subdivisions, but their 12 Houses plan (click Hv) gives cookie-cutter urban sprawl eyesores reason to hope.

I found a dimpled spider, fat and white,
On a white heal-all, holding up a moth
Like a white piece of rigid satin cloth—
Assorted characters of death and blight
Mixed ready to begin the morning right,
Like the ingredients of a witches' broth—
A snow-drop spider, a flower like a froth,
And dead wings carried like a paper kite.
What had that flower to do with being white,
The wayside blue and innocent heal-all?
What brought the kindred spider to that height,
Then steered the white moth thither in the night?
What but design of darkness to appall?—
If design govern in a thing so small.

Thanks - beautiful imagery. Is there an author attached to that poem?
