No one before Bernini had managed to make marble so carnal. In his nimble hands it would flatter and stream, quiver and sweat. His figures weep and shout, their torses twist and run, and arch themselves in spasms of intense sensation. He could, like an alchemist, change one material into another - marble into trees, leaves, hair, and, of course, flesh.

My latest project for my studio project this semester. It was a Peruvian restaurant across the street from the local fine arts museum. We had to work in conjunction with two other people who had restaurants next to our site and create a vaguely cohesive design strategy for the whole thing. I created a mostly concrete building, the person next to me created a light wood building, and beside him was a heavy masonry building.
Overall, the project was well received, with criticisms that addressed my hesitance at completely pursuing the heaviness of the concrete. Positive remarks were made that I did stay with a concept that saw fruition and was easily recognizable to the critics.
