Georgia and Frida

Concept models

A formal, spatial and biographical analysis of the paintings From the Faraway, Nearby and My Dress Hangs There offers two distinct methods of constructing place: Georgia O’Keeffe presents abstractions of natural elements and conditions, while Frida Kahlo collages together a myriad of cultural symbols that form the essence of a place. These two approaches became the method to design an architecture that interprets, stages and amplifies mundane natural and cultural elements already co-existing at the border. These two concept models served as the first interpretation of the placemaking of the two artists as architectural spaces.
