for me is duchamp's critique on retinal art, particularly the readymades.

This thread is sad, a bunch of inward looking architects that don't even care enough to admire anything outside of their own discipline.  One of the many reasons creativity and intrigue is generally dead in this field.

Not sure about others but venturing elsewhere brought me nothing but clickbaity stuff involving nude/porn/trump dildo posing off as "art", oh and the occasional Damien Hirst bs.

Think I'll stick to this.


try a museum, gallery, or go check out some art books in the library...the internet sucks for stuff like this...gotta be IRL.

real life has plenty of abstraction, take a look at Agnes Martin's work.


Well I did and to be honest, almost every aspect of Art these days is covered with computational/generative shapes/installations/sculptures even.

Needless to say, the respite I thought could be offered outside of office was a pipe-dream.

Antonio Sant'Elia's drawings were fantastic.

Jean Prouve

Always like the water colors that came out of Eliel Saarinen's office.

Max Ernst.  Layers and gradient. I can sit and stare at The Eye of Silence for a good long while. 

Naef toys.

really admire the work of Jony Ive & co. I love that they not only design an object but the machine required to manufacture it if it doesn't exist already.

I personally admire the work of garbage men, without them we would really be in one big mess.
