Rockefeller Guest House
Turtle Bay, Manhattan Designed by Philip C. Johnson in 1948 and built in 1949-50, the former Rockefeller Guest House is one of the earliest buildings in New York City to reflect the influence of the modem movement in architecture and the celebrated German-American architect Mies van der Rohe. The house, which was described by the noted architectural critic Ada Louise Huxtable as "sophisticated . . . handsome, unconventional," is remarkably intact. Johnson's subtle and elegant design incorporates features borrowed from two earlier projects by Mies: his unbuilt "court houses" of the 1930s, and the elevations he designed for various buildings at the Illinois Institute of Technology (hereafter, IIT). Built without the use of traditional ornament, the striking two-story street facade is articulated with precisely arranged structural elements, including a symmetrical first story consisting of a handsome wood door and flanking polished reddish brown ironspot brick walls laid in Flemish bond, surmounted by a grid of six fixed translucent windows faced with four steel H-sections. The house was commissioned by Blanchette Rockefeller, the wife of John D. Rockefeller 3rd and a major patron of the Museum of Modem Art (hereafter, MoMA), to display her collection of modem painting and sculpture and to entertain guests. The Rockefellers donated the house to the museum in 1955, and in the years that followed it had a succession of owners, many of whom were associated with the international art community, including Johnson who lived in the house from 1971 -79. A significant early work by one of the country's leading architects and his only private residential building in New York City, in May 1989 the Rockefeller Guest House became the first work of architecture in the city to be sold by a leading art auction house. Design and Construction In June 1948, the Empire Mortgage Company, acting on behalf of the Rockefeller family acquired a 25 by 100 foot lot on East 52nd Street, west of Second Avenue. It was an ideal location - midway between her home in Turtle Bay on Beekman Place and the museum. On the site were two vacant structures, both dating from circa 1870. Johnson later described them as "completely nondescript, [a] small house, wedged between brick walls, a gap and a weed patch, with a dumpy coach house."17 This sequence of spaces -closed, open, and closed-would shape Johnson's plan. Whereas most urban townhouses have gardens at the rear of the lot, the "gap" and "weed patch" would become an internal courtyard, filled with water and partly open to the sky. An associate in Johnson's office, Frederick C. Genz, filed plans for the guest house in late 1948.18 Since the existing brick walls were retained, it was classified as an alteration, consisting of mainly plastering, plumbing, carpentry, and masonry work. The project's estimated cost was $64,000.19 Construction began in 1949, and the house was ready for use in 1950. The Rockefeller Guest House was one the first buildings in New York City to reflect the influence of the modem movement in architecture and the celebrated German-American architect Mies van der Rohe. It would also be Johnson's first and only private residential building in the city. Located on the south side of 52nd Street, the simple two-story brick and glass facade stood in sharp contrast to the late nineteenth century buildings adjoining it, a tenement and schoolhouse. Johnson's spartan design reflects two projects by Mies: the unbuilt "court houses" of the 1930s, where he explored the "flow of space . . . confined within a single rectangle formed by the outside walls of court and house conjoined," and the architect's elevations for the various buildings at HT which were notable for their "subtleties of detailing."20 In describing these facades, Johnson wrote in 1947: Structural elements are revealed as are those of a Gothic cathedral . . . And whereas the medieval architect relied on the collaboration of the sculptor and painter for his ultimate effect, Mies, so to speak, had to perform the functions of all three professions. He joins steel to steel or steel to glass or brick, with the taste and skill that formerly went into the chiseling of a stone capital or the painting of a fresco. Johnson followed Mies's example; rather than embellishing the guest house facade with traditional ornament, he articulated the street facade with precisely arranged structural elements. He divided the two-story facade into two visually-distinct sections. The lower portion of the first floor facade, which projects slightly in front of the windows, consists of a wood door at center flanked by polished reddish brown brick walls laid in Flemish bond. The brick, which resembled that used on the cylinder that enclosed the bathroom in Johnson's New Canaan residence of the previous year, was chosen to compliment the facade of the adjacent
Inside Old Homs's House
Syria though Ages it seems that, since hundred thousands years ago, people were eager to settle at the Euphrates banks the Assi (orantes) river valley in Syria, and among gardens of pines and oaks. The people from the first stone ages – such as Chilean & Ashouli period – have resided at the area where some very old tools such as scraper, manual axes and Clint stone plates have been fund out. Moving to the Mesolithic (medium Stone Age) and Neolithic (modern stone age), we surly see in this area - Euphrates area in Syria --- the oldest population settlement and residency have ever found. This has been really discovered while having protected the ruins and antiquities available at the Euphrates dam site. The scientific mission at Tall Mrebet site, located at Euphrates river, west to Tabaqa (presently Thawra) city, have discovered a location in which human resided since eleven thousand years ago, which in turn considers to be the oldest stable residency known up to day. That human used to live in circle big rooms made out of mud, wood along with some stone, where we find that the ceilings or covers of these rooms used to be made out of branches or the animal leathers. At Tall Abu Hurira, not too far from Tall Mrebet, antiquities have been found out there belonging to the same age, the nineth C BC. But those immigrants coming from Euphrates site or those original people have not in their minds that they are going to build up at the Euphrates banks location, presently called Tall Hariri, 100 km west of al-Bokamal county, a very big civilization belonging to the third Millennium BC. Ascribed to Mary city. In 1933, just for the our fair luck, through excavations still in progress, this important site is still on up to day; as a matter of fact, this site indicated out various levels, layers and premises. Many thousands of muddy inscriptions tablets have enriched our knowledge about the ancient history of this area and indicated that the Euphrates regions, as well as Egypt used to have the ancient civilization and population settlement in the world. Mary used to occupy the prominent place in history of Euphrates regions. In 1935 a palace belonging to the 02nd Millennium BC, has been discovered under which in 1964 another palace belonging to the Pre- Sargon reign (which means from 2700 – 2350 BC) Another layer again has been discovered belonging to Ninava the 5th, which means fourth Millennium BC. Out of the pre– Sargon age, Shamash, Dagan, Ashtar and Ninni Zaza temples have been discovered there. At the second period, the big palace of the city which has been fully destroyed after a sweeping war launched by Hammorabi in 1750 BC. has been discovered. At that time, Hamorabi, has destroyed his enemy Zimiri Lim, the king of Mary. Flourish and importance distinguished city reached up at the age of that king has no more existed . From this big palace, Zimiri Lim, used to control big part of the Middle East, and at the same time, the destiny of many people were used to be in his hand up to be occupied by Babylon army. Upon excavation, more than twenty thousand inscriptions and slabs written in cuneiform style and Akkadian languages, have been found out along with other various statues made out of mud and stone; one of them is a splendid statue representing the beautiful female-singer Urnina of the temple Ninni Zaza, Lamji Mary statue, statue of the fortune-teller, Ashtar statue, the calf Statue and Eidi Naroum, Eiko Shamagan statue the flour miller which has founded at Ashtar temple. The most two important and greatest findings of Zimri Lim belonging to the 2nd Millennium BC, have been the statue of The Goddess of spring, and the statue of Eshtob Eilom, along with head cut-off statue of Eidi Eilom At the court-yard, remaining of a colorful wall-paint decorated portraying a festival scene, with King Zimri Lim standing worshipfully in front of goddess of war Ashtar, which was in her costumes erected on her lion-symbol; with other views we may see the Springs goddess and Palms goddess. During 1975 , a significant discovery of cultural historical importance existed at Tall Merdikh, surely it is the discovery of Ebla City. Two rooms containing 17 000 of clay-documentary inscriptions were found in one of the meeting halls of the royal palace third Millennium BC- of Ebla, the biggest and most ancient city in the world. These inscriptions, which carried original texts written in Amorit, Canaanite, and Sumerian old Syrian languages, were filed on wooden shelves as exactly as any modern library nowadays. The initial reading showed that these clay-documents were the lists of Ebla's old trades, royal laws, official reports to the king of Ebla about military battles, lists of taxes paid by subjugated cities, and treaties with other great states. In addition to these documents, many lingual texts were found, between which the oldest multi-languages dictionaries that gave a series of Sumerian words (the lan
