We are making it a habit to share recent sketches of places or spaces we seek to conceive in our practice. This is one such place, an outdoor meeting area of two leaning cast in place concrete walls with the imprint of the wooden boards, mosaic tile inset, rugged wooden seats cantilevered from the concrete topped by a recessed planter.
Perhaps it could be for a garden or a park? We can only begin to imagine the house or museum these walls belong to. Right now that's mysterious to us.
Note the drainage gullies at the foot of the concrete carrying rainwater or melt off away. One of our favorite architects is Carlo Scarpa, an Italian 20th century architect who designed and conceived fine homes, commercial and institutional buildings in Italy. With his work you can really feel the "making" of the architecture. And so we try to do so here. It is a beginning.
