One of my goals for my blog for 2021 is to feature more architecture. Whether or not architectural design should be considered art has been long debated, but for me it has always made the cut. My most recent trip to Los Angeles gave me a chance to feature two titans of architecture housed right next door to each other in LA’s downtown. The iconic Walt Disney concert hall by Frank Gehry and the new kid on the block The Broad Museum by architectural firm Diller Scofidio + Renfro are as equally grand as they are different from one another. They are both extremely modern and grand in their own way. The Gehry building has an almost organic and a very whimsical feel as it’s metal exterior facets swirl playfully into the sky, while The Broad is a more rigid and imposing structure, however the pure white porous facade gives it an unnatural lightness for something so large. They are both iconic and to me are like fine art sculptures on a monumental scale so at least at least in the case of these buildings I one hundred percent believe this is art. I would love to hear which building you prefer and why…and also do you thing architecture is fine art?
