[ a closer look ]

The Deutsche Guggenheim Berlin presents 'Amazons of the Avant-Garde' through October 17, 1999. The exhibit details the significant contributions made by six Russian women toward the development of modern art in the early 20th century. The exhibition features over seventy works by Alexandra Exter, Natalia Goncharova, Liubov Popova, Olga Rozanova, Varvara Stepanova, and Nadezhda Udaltsova, with many of these works making their first appearance in the West. Following the initial exhibition in Berlin, the collection will travel to the Royal Academy of Art in London, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice, and finally to the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York.

[ event horizon ]

coming soon to a momentary vignette...

Sure, we all remember the cement pond from the 'Beverly Hillbillies', but what was that pond really made of? A visit to ancient Rome may hold the answer...


[ worth reading ]

A book no student of architecture should be without, A Visual Dictionary of Architecture is yet another classic reference from the masterful hands of Francis Ching. Beautifully illustrated, the book is truly a visual dictionary, complete with a wide array of architectural terms, definitions, and concepts. It is perhaps the best architectural dictionary we have ever seen!

[ the last word ]

it is like a dancing Mondrian...

A term coined by artist Jean Dubuffet to describe the kinetic works of Alexander Calder, a 'mobile' is a composition of constantly shifting shapes suspended by wires and rods... magically sent into motion by the slightest breeze.
