Nice Curves

Aug 2, 2010



Loved the article in this month’s WIRED magazine about Bill Zahner and his work designing and creating steel & metal facades for some pretty impressive buildings.  Check it out if you get a chance.

While reading the article, I was reminded of the excellent use of space and creative facade work I saw last week while visiting NewHope Church in LA where my friend Charles Lee serves as Lead Pastor.  Here’s a photo of their space:

They did a great job of taking this small, plain, rectangular space and giving it a fresh, clean feel – which undoubtedly impacts the experience side for those gathering in the space.  Great job NewHope!

Let’s be inspired by the curves!

PS – Gotta watch this time-lapse construction video of Cooper Union.

    Sweet. I’ve been making artwork for some stuff at our church, and hadn’t really thought of using architecture for inspiration.
