tales from the getty villa

FURNITURE_02

My wife and I took a short trip to Machado Silvetti’s Getty Villa a few months ago.  I brought along my sketchbook and put down a few details, ideas, or forms that I found fascinating – from the archaeological ‘Roman’ architecture of the Villa proper, Machado Silvetti’s modernist interventions, or the ancient Roman and Greek antiquities housed inside, including that splendid bronze staircase (underside of risers and stone handrail).
