How many times have you looked at a piece of art on display in a museum or gallery and wondered to yourself, “what exactly am I looking at and why is it so special?” As architects and designers, we understand this sentiment well thanks to the natural overlap between art and our field.
Artist Michael Heizer created “City” three hours north of Las Vegas over the course of five decades. The installation is one of the largest artworks in the world and cost over $40 million in construction and maintenance.
Recently, Terri and Brian Doiron returned from Italy, where they immersed themselves in the art and history of the country. Specifically, Terri relished the opportunity to see the Renaissance paintings of Luca Signorelli, a distant ancestor, in person.
The Doirons, like many architect/designer families, are obsessed with the arts. Their children all play an instrument or dance, even pursuing career opportunities focused on their unique gifting.
