I adore architecture.
I spend a lot of my spare time reading about those who live on through their legacy of bricks and mortar. There are so many incredibly influential — and extremely talented — architects that recently it’s been difficult to narrow down my reading list. I usually end up with about twenty tabs open on Chrome every Sunday morning, toast burning. But one who I come back to time and time again is Louis Kahn, whose work was premised on the use and manipulation of light. So there are now these huge buildings that act as some kind of shrine to light, which I think is so romantic…
I’ll always love Luis Barragan, too! His use of color is just beautiful.
Do you have a favorite architect? Do you prefer more traditional or contemporary architecture?
