Frank Lloyd Wright, “Guggenheim,” 1951 | Perspective | Pencil and colored pencil on tracing paper

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row lk_dm=”0″ lk_thm=”0″ lk_tuo=”0″ lk_dt=” “][vc_column][vc_column_text]”It was well known that Wright visualized the building in its entirety before he or his draughtsmen even put a line on paper. Wright’s perspective drawings were often begun using mechanical projection, which meant the building’s plan is place at the bottom at an oblique angle corresponding to the angle the perspective will be drawn. Next, a horizon line with vanishing points is established above the plan. Then vertical lines are drawn at the plan’s intersections, carried upward, establish the building’s corners. In this way, the renderer does not exaggerate the true proportions of the building, leading to a clarity not present in most typical architectural drawings.” (Read more on BeLoose)[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row lk_dm=”0″ lk_thm=”0″ lk_tuo=”0″ lk_dt=” “][vc_column][dzs_parallaxer media=”https://secureservercdn.net/104.238.71.250/qzx.c30.myftpupload.com/wp-content/uploads/frank-lloyd-wright-s-c-johnson-son-web.jpg” clip_height=”600″ total_height=”900″][/dzs_parallaxer][vc_column_text]

“Iannis Xenakis: Composer, Architect, Visionary explores the fundamental role of drawing in the work of Greek avant-garde composer Iannis Xenakis (1922–2001). A leading figure in twentieth century music, Xenakis was trained as a civil engineer, then became an architect and developed revolutionary designs while working with Le Corbusier. Comprised of nearly 100 documents created between 1953 and 1984, this is the first North American exhibition dedicated to Xenakis’s original works on paper. Included are rarely-seen hand-rendered scores, architectural drawings, conceptual renderings, pre-compositional sketches, and graphic scores.” (See the Drawing Center’s exhibition catalogue: Drawing Papers 88: Iannis Xenakis: Composer, Architect, Visionary)
