1. Arata Isozaki, near Joshua Tree, Pioneer Town. I want/ must/ need to visit these forms and shapes in the California desert. (If anyone knows how I can visit, please write me directly!) This photo is scanned in from the recent World of Interiors Magazine, the September 2010 issue.
Isozaki, if I am correct, was the architect for the MOCA here in Los Angeles. A different form, but indeed, has the same sort of unfolding puzzle as this concrete form poured in the desert. There are three of these forms, that are built to match the seasons, and allow his children to experience the magic of the desert.
Does it get any better / more beautiful than this?
