Frankel Residence by TVA Architects

TVA Architects have designed a home in the town of Sisters, Oregon.












Project description

Located on a 40-acre parcel of agricultural land in arid Central Oregon, the Frankel home is oriented to capture the magnificent views of the Three Sisters Mountains to the west and Mount Jefferson to the north. The home sits on a constructed plinth, 30-inches above the existing ground plane and is organized around sheltered patios and outdoor living spaces. Two fireplace chimneys soar above the horizontal composition and provide a visiual landmark from afar, and the stucco-clad pavilions that make up the composition are tied together with glazed passageways. A double allee of Swedish Aspen runs the length of the major landscape element and ties the composition together.

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.
