Charles Gwathmey, Architect

Dunway Apartment, NYC, 1969

Astor Place Condominiums, NYC, 2005

de Menil Residence, East Hampton, NY, 1983

Architect Charles Gwathmey has passed away yesterday, and although I cannot claim to have always followed him (because that would be a lie, and it's not a good idea to lie, especially in print), I was impressed by his style immediately. So called modern architecture can so often leave me uninspired. I find it sometimes lacking in beauty and heart. Not this man however. I love the use of glass and light. Above are a few of my favourites. While it is grey and rainy outside this is my beauty for the day.

For more information on Charles: An article from the New York Times.

All of the pictures are from the Gwathmey Siegel website. Lots of great stuff here.
