Architecture: Blueprint @ Gallery Storefront For Art & Architecture, New York

(Drivebycuriosity) - Tired of all these boring houses? Architecture doesn`t need to be dull - it can be funny and surprising, it can be art. Architects often are restricited by financial constraints and the stolidness of their clients. But there are exceptions.

The gallery "Storefront for Art & Architecture"  on New York`s Lower East Side (97 Kenmare Street) shows that architects can be artists if they are free to draw what the imagine (store).  The place has an exhibition called  "Blue Print" (through March 21, 2015). There you can see a collection of thought experiments where young artists toyed with the imagination.

The gallery shows 50 pieces, dating from 1961 to 2013. Here you can see may favorites. I enjoy the imaginative play with shapes and geometrical figures.

Above you can see a collage called "Case Study Redux" by Johnston Marklee, based on Julian Schulman`s iconic photograph of a hillside building in Los Angeles.
