Gift of the architect
This drawing is made with charcoal on tracing paper on board by Kahn, 1963. Even though it is made only with charcoal it has a lot of value as we can see thebrightness in the floor because of the light. It has geometrical shapes and organic shapes. The focal point in this drawing is in the two cylinder rooms. My eyes went directly there and then to the floor. Finally to the people. I could say that the artist wanted people pay more attention to the architectural in this drawing rather to the people in it. There are three cylinder rooms in the drawing, a shine floor and a lot of people. In my opinion this tell us that art can be even in the contractions.
