WHAT ARE WE TALKING ABOUT

Have not you yourselves sensed a difference in the light that suffuses such a room, a rare tranquility not found in ordinary light?
― Jun'ichirō Tanizaki

Have you never felt a sort of fear in the face of the ageless, a fear that in that room you might lose all consciousness of the passage of time, that untold years might pass and upon emerging you should find you had grown old and gray?

Excerpt from Jun’ichirō Tanizaki’s ‘In Praise of Shadows’.

WHAT ARE WE TALKING ABOUT

I would rather run my hand down an old timber balustrade [... than] a shiny new looking steel balustrade any day. — Phill Rushby

Long before we made the connection between opulence and luxurious materials and the link with those luxury values in our minds, we were connected to raw, organic materials. It triggers something primal in you, even if you aren’t always aware of it. It’s like sitting in front of a fire, there is something about it beyond the warmth that makes you feel good.

WHAT ARE WE TALKING ABOUT

Never look backwards or you'll fall down the stairs. — Rudyard Kipling.

Quote from Rudyard Kipling’s ‘Bridge Builders’ (1893). The story (well the first half of the story) is a detailed description of the construction of a railway bridge across the Ganges in India.

This image is of the Grand stair at Hotel Hotel – a collaboration between Molonglo Group, March Studio and Oculus.

It was shot by Melbourne photographer Tom Roe.
