Cleveland Architecture – Peter B. Lewis Building

It’s been over a year since I’ve traveled anywhere to make photos. So, I decided it was time for a little roadtrip. The impetus for it was an exhibit at the Mattress Factory Museum in Pittsburgh for a Luftwerk installation. Hands down this is the craziest museum I’ve ever been to! Some exceptional artists and […]

South Beach Miami

Next up in Miami, an afternoon in South Beach with two fantastic buildings. The first is the Miami Beach Convention Center by Fentress Architects. The design was inspired by the natural elements in the area…the ocean, beach, underwater life and particularly, the ocean waves. Definitely apparent in the curviness of the facade. I also feel […]

Time for another revisit…

The Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) is just one of those places that never gets old. As I’m sure you’re aware, I can’t get enough of good spiral staircases and the Frank Gehry design at the AGO is one of the best I’ve ever seen. It’s made of this beautiful Douglas Fir; the color is […]

Frank Gehry & the AGO

I have a mild obsession with staircases in general and one of my all-time favorites is the Frank Gehry designed staircase at the Art Gallery of Ontario. Every visit results in new takes on this beauty. The warm tones of the wood (Douglas fir) make the color versions inviting, while the black & white offers […]

Revisiting the AGO

Oh how I love a good staircase. Add Frank Gehry to the mix and I’m not sure it can be beat! So, on my last visit to Toronto I made sure to take advantage of their Wednesday night free admission to explore the museum and get a few more shots of the incredibly designed staircase […]

AGO Revisted

For my second visit to the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO), I made a quick stop just inside the entry. My battery died on the last visit and my unprepared self forgot to bring a spare…super smart, lol. So, I wanted to stop in to photograph the ramp in the center of the entrance. If […]

Stairway | Gehry | AGO

In my last post I shared some workshop images from my time in Toronto. I stayed a couple extra days and visited the Art Gallery of Ontario for a couple reasons. First, because there was a Georgia O’Keeffe exhibit and she’s one of my favorite artists. Second because it’s designed by one of my favorite […]

Walt Disney Concert Hall

As I mentioned in my previous post, I took a couple extra days in Los Angeles before teaching my workshop to explore a few additional locations. My first visit was inside The Broad, the following day I stopped inside the Walt Disney Concert Hall to escape the rain and checkout an exhibit a Chicago photo […]

Foundation Louis Vuitton

During last months trip to Paris the one must-see location was the Frank Gehry designed Foundation Louis Vuitton (FLV). Once again, Gehry did not disappoint. As soon as I checked into the hotel I took a short walk over to FLV through the Jardin d’Acclimatation…what a great park! This city and its public spaces are […]
