Recently, we met up with our buddy Mark Cabrinha who’s doing a smashing job of running design studios at the Cal Poly School of Architecture. His design-build studios are cranking out some sharp built work, like this student lounge, and we’ve got mad respect for anyone that can get a Ph.D. in architecture AND get things built.
-thanks to Mark

Architect Jerrold E. Lomax has made quite a name for himself by remodeling the work of one of our favorite mid-century modern architects, Craig Ellwood. He and his staff have an eye for discipline and a respect for some of the most inspiring work on the planet.

Although she came to prominence in the 1940’s and 50’s, the work of Argentinean artist Lidy Prati, was new to us. We love that she’s not afraid of leaving some white space on the canvas. We’d hang those clean lines and rigid geometries on our walls any day.

Prati’s work reminded us of Agnes Martin and we refreshed on her brilliant portfolio. If you’re not familiar with Martin’s minimal, crisp work we highly recommend a tour.

Cheers from the BUILDblog
