Precedent: Aalto's summer house, 1953

Aalto's own summer retreat house in Muuratsalo, Finland, designed in 1953. Similarly to a lot of the other precedents, this house is a semi-courtyard house, with the rooms arranged in an L shape around a brick courtyard. Aalto used this house to create an essay in ways to compose bricks; different bonds, grout depths, tiles, etc. Richard Weston describes this house as "by comparison with conventional summer-houses, both traditional and contemporary, the design is remarkably introverted. The rooms have small windows and the normally direct relationship to nature is mediated by the courtyard, which defines a man-made place within the forest..."

Miley on the other hand, at least has a teeny tiny smidgen of talent and is somewhat not stupid. Her primary talent of course being pissing people off and making them go all crazy bitching about her. I find that kind of talent admirable in a person. This is also Sarah Palin’s primary talent. Which also acknowledge as impressive. megan fox naked

Isabel Lucas, who was on screen for a forgettable 5 minutes in the same shitty giant robot movie as Fox, won an award for Best Breakout Performance for playing a “sexy” robot who tries to seduce The Beef. megan fox naked pictures

Our lady Megan Fox (who, incidentally, I dreamed about last night, and no, guys, I won’t share), is moving up and beyond box-office hits like Transformers and circus freak sex movies. megan fox naked
