Institutional Architecture Can Be Good Architecture

August 31, 2008

The image below is of a design for the new British Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia.

I’m not at all sure what caught my eye, but I do like this.  It seems to escape the block paradigm, and brings the public right into the centre of the building.  The all-glass exterior will bring an organic look to the streetscape.  And it is not too big to overpower the people or the neighbourhood.

A canvas version is in progress.  It has been so wet the last few days, drying delays have been inevitable and inconvenient.


Writing and Stuff

August 29, 2008

It continues to be a very busy time at work right now.  And when I get home, my mind gets locked into the series of paintings I am working on right now.  Thus, not much written blogging gets done.  I hope that can be improved over the next few days.  In the meantime, I’ll keep posting images of the canvases as they get completed just for the heck of it.

Thought For The Day

August 25, 2008

“The artist has to look at everything as though he saw it for the first time; he has to look at life as he did when he was a child … The first step toward creation is to see everything as it really is, and that demands a constant effort”

— Henri Matisse
