A sculpture can be deemed as logical and scientific venture, in character, one that is learnedly critical over an ode to gravity.
‘I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.”
Sad, indeed, is to see how men occupy themselves with trivialities, and are indifferent to the grandest phenomena—care not to understand the architecture of the universe, but are deeply interested in some contemptible controversy about the intrigues of modernity.
Sculptures, rightly viewed, possess not only truth, but supreme beauty—a beauty cold and austere, without appeal to any part of our weaker nature, sublimely pure, and capable of a stern perfection such as only the greatest art can show.
Homage to Art Deco architecture-renderings for a sculpture-laden, mammoth Guggenheim Museum have surfaced. With gorgeous trappings of an extensively ornate fabric, the project was not submitted to the competition as confirmed by building architect Mark Foster Gage, however, the design is still worth checking out.
We designed this. There is likely a ton of bullshit that we could tell you about regarding it’s process, or how its sustainable, or how it fits into its context symbolically, but none of it would really be true. We designed it because we liked it and thought it was great. We hope you like it too. — Mark Foster Gage Architects.
