DLC House by Vanguarda Architects

Vanguarda Architects have designed the DLC House in Buenos Aires, Argentina.



This house has been designed from a large white enclosing wall that contains all the functions and is completely open to the backyard so as to enjoy the different views to the lake and its natural environment. The access is materialized through a stone folded wall that turns the access into a wall that separates the parking spaces, behind which the house service rooms are found: laundry, storage room, pantry, service bedroom and bathroom.

To the left of the access, on the front, there is a study strategically located so as to gain more privacy. The sitting room, of a double height, includes the sculpture-like staircase that leads us to the upper floor and is integrated into the dining room, designed for family meetings from a large table surrounded by sofas and chairs. After this, we find the kitchen, also including an informal dining room or breakfast counter and a small family room. On the rear façade, a large projecting roof that comes from inside the glass façade forms the gallery, over which we find a large terrace with panoramic view that may be accessed from the master suite. The other bedrooms, two en-suites, were placed to the front of the lot to be used on weekends by the owners’ children and their families.

Stiff Pose Victorian Postmortem photography (140 Pics)

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
