Spiraling steel cascades endlessly down and around forming twists and curves of intrigue. The eye and the imagination are led to fill in the spatial blanks where the alluring lines leave off.
Architect Frank Gehry, is in love with spiraling elements and natalini is in love with Gehry. His work is in constant motion and at times surreal. Gehry has managed to combine imagination, sculpture and innovative engineering into habitable spaces. One example is the staircase at the AGO Museum in Toronto, which is a captivating addition to the historical building. Some protested that its extreme aesthetic would destroy the character of the classic structure. Gehry gracefully created a vision that was woven through the original bones of the museum. The AGO Museum is a beautiful display of structure and materials working well together and is reflective of the eclectic curation of art that adorns the interior of the museum.
natalini is grateful to Frank Gehry for his "inspirlation" and his anything is possible if imagined approach to architecture. We are also keeping tabs on his "lower lair" addition to the Philadelphia Museum of Art and would love to one day have dinner with His Brilliance.
