MISFITZ BECAUSE: What Doesn't Belongand Why?
Mind-Teasers!

By Eliot Plum

What doesn’t fit and why? Nationals, Blackhawks, Rays, Astros. Not so tough. ANSWER? Blackhawks, because the other teams play Major League Baseball, but the Chicago Blackhawks play in the National Hockey League. OK, try this one: cucumber, tomato, radish, avocado. A little harder, right? ANSWER? Radish, because the others are botanical fruits (they have seeds) that we treat as culinary vegetables, but a seedless radish is a root vegetable. But most of the mind- puzzlers in this fun book don’t test your knowledge of special-area facts or trivia—your “vertical thinking.” Nope. Most of the puzzles in this book test what Edward de Bono calls “lateral thinking”: your ability to think creatively —to leap outside the box. Take this example: poker, chess, skate, score. ANSWER? You'll have to get the book!

GARCHES 1234: Remembering the Mathematics of the Ideal VillaAn Essay on Le Corbusier's 1927 Villa de Monzie/Stein [Fourth Edition]

By JEF7REY HILDNER

In 1927, the great Swiss-French architect Le Corbusier completed a house in the Paris suburb of Garches. No structure of the early modernist era has gained more renown. In 1947, British scholar Colin Rowe’s essay “The Mathematics of the Ideal Villa” brought Garches to the foreground—and Garches has stayed there ever since. GARCHES 1234 picks up where Rowe left off and throws bold light on Le Corbusier’s assertion that at Garches, more than any of his other projects, “proportion ruled absolutely there, as absolute mistress.”

ARCHITECT JEF7REY HILDNER published an early version of this essay in the refereed Journal of Architectural Education (February 1999). Here the essay appears in its final and fully illustrated form.
