1428 / Saarinen’s TWA / NYC

Back to JFK airport! I was so sleepy, I needed a coffee, and breakfast, but when I saw Saarinen’s #TWA I just sat on the first sunny bench and sketched, forgetting the hunger and coffee addiction. Saarinen’s building was commissioned in 1956, to “capture the spirit of flight”. He surely did it! 


1418 / United Nations Headquarters / NYC (sold)

Yesterday I had a nice brunch at Greenpoint with some friends that work at the United Nations. After that, I went to Long Island and drew that building. Le Corbu and Niemeyer’s edifice outstands for its proportions and light colors.

1250 / Guadalaviar School*patio / Valencia // Spain

Guadalaviar School (1957-60) is one my favorite buildings in Valencia. I love the composition of the exterior volumes, but I would like to  stress the remarkable atmosphere created by the inner garden. Yesterday I saw this terrific light crossing the patio and I thought: “I had to Paint it!”  Architect: Fernando Martínez García-Ordoñez
