THE CANDYMAN POSTS A PUZZLE FROM ATLANTA
So to the indefatigable Eric Moorhouse's latest bit of architectural eye-candy, the website of an interesting architect from Atlanta, Robert M Gurney, FAIA (www.robertgurneyarchitect.com). I was struck by the fact that I could not get past the home page. I clicked on Gurney's name, the word 'architect' beneath, the line, and then the three red dots at its end. Nada.
I tried it the following morning. Same thing. Then, for some reason, I pressed the full-screen button and there at the bottom was the tiny word 'enter' with two arrows beside it. I ask you.
Who runs full-screen? (I gather it depends on the size of your screen. ) The three square dots were a graphic device which expanded to fill the screen and then morph into a slide show. I don't usually go for slide shows, but this moves at a fairly brisk pace and you can look at the buildings individually by hitting 'portfolio'. The inevitable practice philosophy text has a thin red line on the right, which you eventually discover is a slider accessing yet more philosophy. But, happily, this is displayed in such non-adjustable, small type that you don't feel guilty not reading it.
