Popular and prolific

You can't not look at a site called Popular Architecture. I'm fairly certain it's a blog because of the simple and effective two column layout – images in the big one on the left, text in the narrow one on the right. There are short cuts directly to projects – via big thumbnails at the beginning. But the rest of the site is one very long page. So not very sophisticated and because or should it be despite that, almost a Don't-Make-Me-Think site. You have to wait a bit at the beginning for everything to load up but when it has you're in a good frame of mind because it's all interesting. So you almost forget the earlier half minute or so of sucking teeth and drumming on the space bar.

But hang on. This is a lot of stuff for a graduate of all of eight years. As a colleague points out, the big buildings are actually OMA's. Casey Mack, the site's proprietor, was project architect for them. Hmmm. You're not sure whether to grump disappointedly at this blatant plumping up of the Mack oeuvre complet or to simply admire his chutzpah.
