"I studied engineering because I am interested physics astronomy - I am fascinated by the posibility of understanding reality through the physical mathematical language." Eladio Dieste
“In an industry so often enamored by media-coddled superstars with trendy clients, Eladio Dieste stands out as a refreshing and inspiring figure. Born in Uruguay, Dieste spent most of his long and productive career creating industrial and agrarian works, public infrastructure, commercial buildings, and small churches in his native country. Dieste’s unique and innovative method of design, a melding of architecture and engineering, elevated these often humble buildings to masterworks of art. Capitalizing on his revolutionary approach to building with reinforced masonry, Dieste built aesthetically stunning structures economically. If he often worked outside the architectural mainstream, he never lost sight of the modest people for whom his structures were built.” Eladio Dieste: Innovation in Structural Art by
Various Clouds, by Vincent Van Gogh.
For months I’ve been working on collecting and cutting a set of patterns, one from each decade since 1890 as a part of a 13 piece series. I’m almost done with the patterns and then I move on to the hard part; the portraits that go with them.

Across Europe one finds buildings that lie unfinished, some are skeletal in form and purpose. These concrete forms represent a stage in architectural process that, in their case, may never be completed. Here we see architecture paused; construction has ceased and we are left with the bones of buildings in stasis.
In this state, an architectural lineage is revealed by their resemblance to the remains of classical structures. Incomplete for economic and political reasons, they becomes runis of modernity.
