Walter Gropius and The Architects Collaborative at Harvard
There is something about the Harkness Commons ensemble, also known as the Harvard Graduate Center, that makes it pleasant and warm. Walking in the courtyard and below the canopies today I realised it has mainly to do with the scale and how the volumes and thoughtful landscaping wrap themselves around you.
The ensemble consists of several dormitories and a student building with a dining hall, leisure areas and other communal spaces. The buildings have a strong touch of 1920s-30s 'handicraft industrialism', similar to the Bauhaus buildings in Dessau. Despite what has been said, it does not feel cold, industrial or brutal, on the contrary, it is a very sensitive piece of Modernist architecture.
Design 1948-49, completed 1950. Supposedly the first Modernist building ensemble at the more prominent university campuses in the US.

"It's just a habit when I reach to the packet
For my last cigarette, until the day breaks
Then my hand shakes
But, but, but, but, but, but
It's just driving me insane
When the smoke gets in my brain I can't resist it
Wallow in that ash bath
Soaking up the fumes
And see the nicotine stain
Start to spread"

"Untitled 1". This one I painted in a very confusing day in my life. I was having anxious feelings for the first time in a while and trying to deal with them. Anxiety can be really overwhelming and this was the best way I could find to cope.
I kinda love the result though.
It's acrylic and oil pastel on canvas board.
