St. Joseph Catholic Church is located within the shadow of the capitol building in downtown Topeka. The masonry and exterior were restored recently and work on the interior is underway, all led by SFS Architecture in Kansas City. One more good reason to go to Peka. Get it? To Peka!
I stopped in to see the new Visual Arts Building on a road trip home from Michigan and got these photos. Gorgeous new facility designed by Steven Holl Architects. I wanted to get out on the balconies, but doors were locked…
This was my first time in Iowa City and I fell in love with the place–lush and hilly with a beautiful river running through. And I had one of the top five most memorable dinners of my life there at Sanctuary Pub–no kidding: coq au vin blanc. It was fantastic.
The list of 19 Collateral Events at the Biennale Architecture 2016 was announced yesterday, you’ll find Time Space Existence listed on page 4.
And an update: My photos have been shipped off; Giulia with the GAA Foundation tells me they are released from Italian Customs and have arrived successfully in Venice. And just so you know not a single detail of the adventure will be go unreported: I have decided on a paint color for the wall they will hang on: RAL 7005 “Mouse Grey”.
I am very honored and thrilled to announce that I’ve been invited to present my architectural photography at the GAA Foundation’s Time Space Existence exhibit at the 2016 Venice Architectural Biennale, and with a generous grant from the European Cultural Center I will indeed be participating! The exhibit has traditionally featured the works of architects but is expanded this year to include architectural photography as well. Fellow invitees include Toyo Ito, Peter Eisenman and Zaha Hadid. I’m just sayin’.
The photo is of the 2014 Biennale, taken by Marcus Bredt.
Stay tuned for updates…
A monograph on the work of David Chipperfield Architects was just published by El Croquis, and includes a couple of my photos of the East Building addition to the St. Louis Art Museum – get your copy HERE.
I don’t how I forgot to post the photos from that shoot, but here they are finally. Sometimes it takes a wake-up nudge from Spain…
