Jenny Peysin: The Devil in the White City, Palma, and Sol LeWitt
City: New York City. I love the combination of rigid urban planning with the agglomeration of day to day living.
Building: The Pantheon. The interior proportions feel otherworldly and there is nothing like standing under the oculus when it rains.
Book: The Devil in the White City. A fascinating telling of the planning and building of Chicago’s 1893 World Fair and the drama and murder that surrounded it.
Film: Mulholland Drive. I overall love the dark weirdness of Lynch but think that this one is a true masterpiece.
Architect (that is also a woman): Kazuyo Sejima. I love the precise detailing and intentional connectivity of her buildings to their environment.
Restaurant: Palma in Greenwich Villiage. Best Italian food outside of Italy.
Artist: Sol LeWitt. Especially the wall drawings!
Memory: Studying architecture in Rome. It gave me profound appreciation for the profession and its rich history.
Object: My old dance shoes. They remind me of adolescence and all the questioning and transition that comes along with it.
Podcast: 99 Percent Invisible. Roman Mars explores unseen design in everyday life. The Thomassons episode is so charming.
