Royal Brick Gothic

It’s All in the Bricks

Roskilde Cathedral (Roskilde Domkirke) was the first Gothic cathedral constructed of brick, a style which spread throughout Northern Europe. The building was built in the 12th and 13th centuries. The Cathedral has been the last resting place of Danish monarchs since the 15th century.

Penetrable Structure

“Pentretable” Structure

Variations, using a section of ‘Penetrable’ by Jesús Rafael Soto, on display at Olana, New York

Variations on ‘Penetrable’ by Jesús Rafael Soto, an oversized sculptural work consisting of yellow tubes flowing down from a square steel frame. The 1990 work has been shown around the world. I saw it at Olana, the home of painter Frederic Church, in New York’s Hudson River Valley. Visitors can move in and around the sculpture.

It is hard to tell if the internal wires and connectors in I. M. Pei’s glass Pyramid entrance to the Louvre are structural, decorative or a combination.
