As a designer architect, imagine is one of the bases of my job. I imagine before I draw, I settle up, I produce. I let my spirit travelling. When I walk in Paris, I look at the buildings and I wonder: “what the architects were thinking about, during the conception of some of them?” Which feelings come to their mind, what they wanted make us feel through their masterpiece, what inspired them…
Modern and contemporary
Differently called “Le Centre Beaubourg”, this is in 1977 that the place has been inaugurated, and, since this year, it keeps going on astonished us by devoting itself to culture and arts, centralizing cinema, books, design and music. Modern and contemporary, exposition' place and masterpiece, we can’t miss the Centre Pompidou. Colours, material, shape, all is gathered to astonish the walker who becomes spectator, intrigued by which takes place in front of him.
From time to time, I pass ahead of this centre of art and culture. I settle down and I do an introspection, to analyse what I feel. I admire the originality and audacity whose architects have known to show. However, the building doesn’t touch me. I am mitigated, because I am not a fanatic of this piece of art, but I appreciate the work of the architects and their personality that we feel through their work.
I walk, and I think about what touch my architect’ soul, I think about other’s judgement in front of my work, about critics, their weights and their influence, year by year, if they have been constructive, what they bought to me. I walk, and I think about what touch my architect’ soul, I think about other’s judgement in front of my work, about critics, their weights and their influence, year after year, if they have been constructive, what they bought to me.
Indeed, my dear readers, I let you think about this quotation from Louis Pasteur “Have the cult of critical mind”.
See you soon!
