three squares

PALAZZO_01

Three sketches, three squares, in anticipation for my 3X10 birthday tomorrow (the 3rd).

The first, an elevation, with an arcade atop two square windows in a wall – Traditional form with abstraction below.

DIAGONAL_01

The second, a plan, square in form, but diagonal in organization, with a nice entry rotunda on the corner.  This is an homage to Schindler’s diagonal square plans (the How House and Bethlehem Baptist Church, plan), and his mentor’s detailing at the Ennis Brown House.

CUBE_03

The third, in a three-dimensional axonometric, a modernist cube.
