Yow. (Well, it's good to see it both ways.) Who IS this man ? There's something a bit Brueghel about that smaller one. . .

Stadium Square; Cleveland, Ohio, 1927

This is the work of Thomas Silva, when he was a second-year student at Cooper Union, in 1983-84. The project is called "Men's Shelter in the Bowery," and is published in "The Education of an Architect" (Cooper Union / Rizzoli; E Diller, D Lewis, K Shkapich, eds; 1988/1996). The Dean and Associate Dean at the Irwin S Chanin School of Architecture of Cooper Union at the time were John Hejduk and Richard Henderson, respectively.

let us revive this thread

Oct 22, 08 5:57 pm

this is a great thread.

SDR, i wish i would have seen that cooper union project 5 years earlier. in my 2nd year of undergrad i designed a library addition that explored a similar idea. i'll dig through my stuff and see if i can find a drawing of it to post (which were pencil on mylar).

I'm not sure if these made it on the thread yet, but all of Lequeu's archive is scanned and posted here:

The site is annoying because they don't have thumbnails.

throw some retail on the periphery of that stadium, and you've got the least obtrusive stadium in america...

The contrast between the two examples above is amusing. Sort of Po-mo vs. Mo ?

Drawing connects me to childhood, when one simply drew whatever the hell one wanted. So, apologies for lowering the standard here after such great images, but I just recently scanned some stuff out of an old sketchbook. I was walking across a place called the Carse of Stirling... an expanse of rolling low-land bordered by mountains and a Big Sky. I think on a recent summer holiday I'd visited those salt mines at Arc-et-Senans with buildings and drawings by Ledoux(?) - similar period/idea to Boullee above:

The Ledoux original:

i'd just try the link...

A little Chihuly goes a long way, for me. (Maybe the Archinect site has a screen-damage color-filter utility ?) Chihuly is allegedly a jerk. I can say that because we share an alma mater. . .

Given that, the work is a bravura tour-de-force, I'll admit.

i would say that zak smith is easily my current favorite sketch artist: width=340 width=340 width=340 width=

he's incredibly prolific. i suppose i could draw that well, but i don't possess whatever compulsion exists to do that much work, though i wish i did.

Maybe we need to borrow an idea that's working beautifully [pun intended] in another thread: a stream-of-consciousness connection between one image or group, and another ?

Jun 17, 09 12:06 pm

That's an idea for a chair, by the way.

So -- maybe not a necessary gimmick, to choose images based on something in a previous drawing -- but -- anything to encourage continuation of the thread !

maybe. although, if people come up with random ideas, they could start the chain over again. it's too bad they never put one of those red things next to it.

I have been informed by architect Thomas Silva, now practicing in San Francisco, that the student project titled "Men's Shelter on the Bowery," which I posted above, is his work solely, and not that of classmate Martin Finio, whose project of the same name is published separately in the volume mentioned. The attribution error was mine, due to careless reading of the credits at the back of the book. My apologies to Mr Silva.

Ben Grasso's paintings. I saw some of his work at the Whitney show a few years back and have been following him since. Amazing work.

My camera has a build in "face reconision" this is the faces it reconise.
It also has an auto "Make-Up" function, now it's not a new camera and the beautifyer don't work as efficient as modern cameras do, it do not add lips red and eye shaddow nearly as agressive as a modern camera, guess I should be glad about that.

Here a smaller one made before the one in the top, these StreetArt pieces do have a particular impac.
