Reminds me in some ways of a Greek Temple.
The concretisation of place.
To look down into the drained pool.Dry the pool, dry concrete, brown edged,And the pool was filled with water out of sunlight
T.S Eliot-Four quartets
Stealing back some time…..
The Nordic light OR the Venetian light from under the lagoon?
Fehn’s bit of Venice.
Trying out a few Sugimoto style out of focus shots. None of them worked but this one, I like it!
The old workhouse.
Girl on a phone…….sending love messages…I suppose.
On the ocean, beneath the sky.
A conversation under the Lagoon
Scarpa interpreting Venice’s layers
I always recycle a quote from Pallasmaa “an exchange and fusion of the object and subject”………..this is it, I think.
"With great courtesy, then, Scarpa takes us by the hand"
Tadao comes to Venice and makes his mark then he leaves again and nobody even knew he was there.
