S. Carlo ai Catinari; a few weeks ago i shot the int. coffering system, now a drawing from the exterior.  S. andrea d. valle gets more design credit probably b/c it’s actually visible from the street unlike this one where you have to find the right spot, then strain your neck even get a glimpse of it.

more diagrid: this one a bit more of a radial weave that touches goes back, touches goes back (touchweave?)

quick diagram/plan of rotation of s. trinita dei pellegrini

Posted in All by michaelrichardharris on October 7, 2008

rotation before it was called rotation; maybe rotation and transformation aren’t happening in the sectional depth of S. Trinita dei Pelligrini, but in the 2 meters given to Francesco de Sanctis for the facade, he’s able to pull off the rotational trick with 4 columns.
