Coral Castle

Moon Fountain

Florida Table

The Coral Castle was built by Latvian immigrant Edward Leedskalnin in Homestead, Florida. Leedskalnin claimed to had known "the secrets of the pyramids" and was therefore able to lift several tons of limestone made from coral using some form of magnetic propulsion. He built the castle as a monument to his lost love, his 16-year-old fiancee Agnes Scuffs in Latvia who left him just days before the wedding. He worked in secret and devoted his life to the project from 1920 to his death in 1951.


portable arc

Portable Arc is a performance and apparel collection brought forth through the collaborative efforts of JF & SON's Travis Boyer and dance duo Robbinschilds. "Layla Childs, Sonya Robbins and Travis Boyer designed the collection as a conversation about performative clothing, with specific reference to the collaboration between Martha Graham and Isamu Noguchi, Appalachian Spring, of 1944."

the duck

"The Long Island Duckling" from God's Own Junkyard

Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown coined the terms "Duck" and "Decorated Shed" as two ways of explaining the use of symbolism in architecture. The Duck refers to the building as symbol and the Decorated Shed a box with applied symbols. In their own work they favored the Decorated Shed as a model.

"When Modern Architects righteously abandon ornament on buildings, they unconsciously designed buildings that were ornament. In promoting Space and Articulation over symbolism and ornament, they distorted the whole building into a duck." - Learning From Las Vegas
