Introducing Lyrois' architectural essays, conversations between architecture and art --
The vision: Lyrois shapes in public spaces. (Backstory)
The plan: Using our beloved glass, steel, and concrete as the perfect canvas to create a dialogue between static architecture and dynamic art.
Looking for and at glass, steel, and concrete; there is one artist -- architect -- who provides iconic, clean, and clear structures and patterns to pick up and play with: Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.
Granite or concrete?
Mies planned to use granite for an element of the entrance for the IIT. The president of the Institute suggested using less expensive concrete stating that the granite was barely visible anyway. Mies retorted: Concrete instead of granite you would see and asked the president to raise more money instead -- eventually he built with granite.(Related by Swiss architect Otto Kolb)
The inspiration: Linear divisions, spatial proportions, as well as details like huge pieces of marble cut in symmetrical patterns.
Like graffiti, the public landscape is the canvas to work on.
Unlike graffiti, the Lyrois pieces pick up the pattern of the underlying architecture and highlight both canvas and artwork.
