Fortitudo mea in rota!

My plan is to draw the section based on the plans of the many places which will make up my factory: the architect’s office, marble quarries, paper factory, gallery and jury space. For the site, the marble block or polished plinth, to extend its terrain to be looked at in section, I started drawing the topographic lines of these breathtaking marble quarries near Torano in Italy.

I also started drawing Mies Van der Rohe’s unbuilt Convention Hall and Gene Summers’ McCormick Place, 1958. Hence Gene Summers, Mies’ “right hand man”, built the largest convention centre in North America. TBC
