18"x24" ~ watercolor on paper

"Architecture is the learned game, correct and magnificent, of forms assembled in the light" (Le Corbusier).

Almost as a response to the last post with the Parthenon ceiling, here is a drawing of Henri Labrouste's ceiling for the Bibliotheque Nationale (Richelieu) in Paris which was built in the mid-nineteenth century.

This library was just minutes from where I interned for two months this summer, and I went over a few times during lunch break.
