I have had great fun going over old sketch books while on lockdown here in Estoril. Ideas and sketches of unbuildable things and other more reasonable proposals quite unhinged some of them. But the importance of these books is that they are a record of one´s journey in architecture. Architects today who don´t draw and are glued to their screens will never have the pleasure of going back 10, 20, 30 years and enjoy a personal record of that journey. Make sure to date every sketch Alan! Beautiful sketches!
Hang on.... those canopies offer no shelter for outdoor learning!!!! who´s kidding whom?
Do I see Souto Moura's influence here? Check out the Casa das Estorias in Cascais dedicated to Paula Rego's work.....
Come to Lisbon and walk around his Royal coach museum still to be completed.....(his public toilets are very much to the human scale - you can just about get into them and that is if you can find them).......then make your own judgement.....oh and do the same for Calatrava´s station at Expo.......
What about the interiors? Why only photos of the outside?
how does he know they are pointy or shiny?????oh what fun!
Ghery´s upturned finger reminded me of two buildings... one in Barcelona the other you know where....Hehe!
