This is a short post, written last September. I’m reposting it today because I was contacted recently by an organization called Artsy. They originally asked me just to link to their page about architect Zaha Hadid, but I thought you would enjoy learning about the organization as well. I very much like their mission.
Artsy’s mission is to make all the world’s art accessible to anyone with an Internet connection.
We are a resource for art collecting and education.
Artsy’s website is beautiful and well done. Here you go, see here.
Regan was taking pictures of my apartment building. I asked to take a picture of her, and then we started talking. She does architectural and interior photography. She says there aren’t many women photographers represented in magazines like Architectural Digest.
Architecture, in general, seems like a male dominated profession. Quick, name a woman architect! The only one I know of is Iraqi born, British architect Dame Zaha Hadid, who died this year at the age of 65. Take a look at some of her buildings: they’re monumental, avant garde, and feminine.
P.S. Love the Willie Nelson t-shirt…
