Getting it right

I got this Andrew Berman practice website from that eminent and persistent discoverer of architectural sites, Eric Morehouse.

You sign up at http://eyecandy-webcandy.blogspot.com/ for his weekly or more frequent email. Berman is based in New York and the site has a neat and neatly organised home page with a single big image of an intriguingly shaped private library in a park with five section headings below.

In don't-make-me-think terms this is the business: you know exactly what to do. The downside is that the type is insanely small and not adjustable and, as you find out when you hit 'projects', image load-up time can be longer than it should be. It has a slightly superfluous 'news' page and in the 'profile' section is a 'philsophy' page. Breathe easy. This is exactly four short lines. Even the biography, frequently an excuse for self-regarding prolixity, does no more than list Yale graduation dates and practice start-up date. You feel very comforted by all this: here is an architect who gets on with doing architecture not bollocksing around. At the very least you'll put him on the list.
