DescriptionThe Carpenter Center at Harvard University is designed by the famous modernist Le Corbusier. As a sculptural building made almost entirely of concrete, it is appropriate the home of the art department and gallery. The louvre-like window bays contain classrooms, and present dramatic shadows. This is one of the few buildings in the U.S. by this world icon of an architect, who dominated the profession from the 1950's thru the 1970's. Some of his most well-known buildings are located in Europe.
Brian Rojo, Arlington, MA. Member Since March 2011 Artist Statement I'm a landscape architect with a curious eye for finding beauty and meaning in unexpected places. My portfolio contains many subjects, with an emphasis on landscape and architectural photography. I worked as a landscape architect for many years until I became disabled with a genetic disorder. As a result, I'm using photography as a means of expression, replacing the artistic sensibilities that I once found in my profession of designing landscapes and gardens. My aim is to seek out strong compositions and unique viewpoints of familiar and unfamiliar subjects. My interests range from rural to urban landscape, from modern to historic architecture, from plants to vernacular objects, from a sense of place to a sense of wonder. Ultimately, I hope to encourage others to find the beauty in their environment, and to be curious of the unfamiliar.
