Paraphrasing shamelessly from Marcel Breuer’s famous poem on architecture, I borrowed one of his lines to give a title to the keynote address at the Sarasota Design Conference.
Breuer’s poem reads:
Architecture should be received by all the senses
Colors which you can hear with ears
Sounds to see with your eyes
The void you touch with your elbows
The taste of space on your tongue
The fragrance of dimensions
The juice of stone
Breuer’s poem conjures up so many powerful images and notions of sensuality. Some of that essence is reflected in Paul Rudolph’s exquisite architecture around Sarasota. Below are the re-imagining of the Walker Guest House (featuring Elaine Molinar of Snohetta and Christopher Wilson of Ringling College) and the Cocoon House (1951)
The Fragrance of Dimensions: Philip Johnson’s Glass House gets the nod for that line. This photo is currently being used by the Glass House to promote tours.
