Great White Way
The lights of New York dazzled Vladimir Mayakovski when he came to visit in 1925. The revolutionary poet of modernism felt “a constant electrical breeze” in the great city, powering trains to the horizon and elevators to the stars, igniting the metropolitan elements; "the buildings are glowing with electricity,” he wrote. Bewitched, he stared hard into the dizzying views, his vision racing down the vanishing streets netted with wires and lights. [1] For Mayakovski, New York in the early 20th century was the frenzied heart of modernity, the new world metropolis where the self-conscious avant-garde aesthetic experiment of the old world was eclipsed by the unblinking gaze of blazing lamps, as if the white-hot heart of human consciousness itself were on display.

  • Drawing on Architecture

    London | Dates: 04 – 25 May, 2014
    Throughout its forty year history, the Society of Architectural Illustration has had within its membership and council some of the world’s leading and respected topographical and perspective artists. Although the world’s oldest organisation of its kind, the society has continued to evolve and embrace the new, perhaps one of the reasons why it is still here – a true illustrator cannot be separated from the soul in their work. Collating this shared love of architectural illustration for the first time, the society has published ‘Drawing on Architecture’, a book that not only reinforces its impressive history and influence but also brings together a remarkable collection of work from a selection of the Society’s members. With insightful contributions from Lord Norman Foster and Ben Johnson, ‘Drawing on Architecture’ is set to become invaluable for enthusiasts from many fields.
