Beautiful Architectural Geometry

Today I learned about Skymetrics based on these
colorful, geometric architectural images. I’ve never
been so good at math but I’ve always liked geometry,
shapes and color.

The word skymetric is a construction composed
by: sky and -metric (geometric). 
The subject highlights
the decontextualization of places and architectural
spaces in order to alter the natural structure.
These places have in common the fact that all are
square, regular and schematic, so achieving geometric
shots in a minimalist context, where the simplicity and
cleanliness reign supreme. Another point in common is
the sky, in fact each shot shows with a light blue background
that decisively contrasts the brilliant colors of the shapes.
I love the colors, shapes and composition.

Beautiful Rainbow Spectrum

A beautiful bright spectrum of colors to bask in whilst walking through
a cathedral of rainbows. To Breathe – A Mirror Woman is Kimsooja’s
site-specific installation for the Palacio de Cristal in Madrid, Spain.

To expand and unite the architectural structure of the space, Kimsooja
had the whole floor tiled in mirrors. She then covers the vault and the
entire glass surface of the palace with a translucent diffraction film.
When outside light filters through the glass and reflects off the film,
it creates a rainbow spectrum that is mirrored in every part of the atrium.

Beautiful, Bright & Merry 2014

May your 2014 be merry and bright.

And always remember:
If at some point you don’t ask yourself,
“What have I gotten myself into?”
then you’re not doing it right.
