58. Know the Development Stages of a Famous Architect

An analysis of the development stages of a famous architect.

In this post, Jeffrey Kipnis analyzes the career and development of Finnish architect Kivi Sotamaa. He lists these as the general stages of development:








RANDOM QUOTES:

Architecture as an idea is a little bit like writing as an idea: There are writers that are journalists, there are writers that write business letters, there are writers that write fiction,and there are writers that write great works of literature.


Architecture is probably the one kind of creative form that most people don't understand, because they are around it all the time they kind of think that they get it.
Its creative component works at a more profound level and is a little less detectable.
I like to think of it like the the soundtrack in a movie.
The soundtrack controls the way you feel about the movie although you are never quite paying attention to it. You are always giving credit to the actor or the cinematographer; but It is really the music in the background that tells you how to feel.
That is what architecture at its best can do.

This is a very powerful piece. Makes me feel grateful to God and to the universe that I have been called to be an architect. Thanks for sharing.
The wall on which a painting is hung may not mean anything but it sets the tone for a more profound appreciation of the subject.
It shouldn't overpower or it becomes comical. But then again, a wall can and should also have its own character or it will totally disappear. Or perhaps vanishing from sight might have its own magic as well: evanescence...
On the whole I believe in harmony, in a space that heals, a structure that punctuates, a totality that embraces and makes all one.
The wall is not the painting. In diversity, there can certainly be unity.
