Lauretta Vinciarelli

Lebbeus Woods posted these kind, articulate words to commemorate the passing of Lauretta Vinciarelli. Vinciarelli was an Italian architect-turned-artist whose technical skill in portraying and a cognitive prowess in conceiving architectural spaces leave a vacuum in her absence. Woods points out that the spaces she creates are quite different than the “self-aggrandizing, egoistic” spaces that dominate much of contemporary architectural production. When students and practitioners become bored with creating flamboyant one-liners, these paintings of ordered and serene spaces are ripe with inspiration.
