Curves….

Hi again……..today I wanted to post a few notes on the importance of curves – yes, architecture has curves – leading sensual curves that please the eye and always cause us to think “form follows function…or maybe function follows form”. Whatever the case here are two examples by american architect Richard Meier. Enjoy!

Simple and complex…

I thought I would explore lines simple and complex – and leave Gehry for a bit in the process…..this is Richard Meier, an american architect whose signature is the use of white as an overall color and enameled aluminum to elicit some magnificent shapes. From museums to private homes, and he has done many, he is a master at what he does and feeds my appetite for contemporary architecture – large spaces that frame the nature all around them – always graceful and precise; geometry based on hard 30″ square measurements or proportions thereof, or piano-like bends and lines that can rival any female nude as far as shape and grace.

Enjoy simple first

Complex

Thank you for following me…..leave your opinion or a hi on the way out if you want.
