Jeff Koons: A Retrospective 2014 Exhibit at the Whitney
One of the few pieces I enjoyed.
Catonsville Public Library.
Architects: Smith & Veale (1963)
Location: Baltimore (Catonsville), MD.
Making the most of a split level rancher in Washington, DC.
The Collège Protestant Français de Jeunes Filles in Beirut by Michel Écochard in 1961. The architect introduced many philosophies of Le Corbusier and modernism to the Middle East through this and other similar public projects. The design plays with light and shadows as well as the purity of white and simple lines. It allows for an optimistic space of learning and creativity unseen in French schools before this era.
