napowrimo#28...prompt is intuition or heightened awareness. My partner is dowstairs learning new Power Cadd...a huge architect program...inspired... I wrote another acrostic poem...using ARCHITECTURE and similarities with poetry.


Architecture lets you explore human and natuaral environments
Rythm, paradox, and simile
Communicating with all that are open
Hiding the seen showing the unseen
Intuitively landscaping the environment
Telling nothing telling all
Economizing sound and structure
Conjuring up space without images
Travelling beyond noise and space
Until a constant tension appears
Revealing something beyond
Ending inside and outside like a poem

Definitely lots of similarities between these two arts, and you showed that well!

Andy Sewina said...

Nicely Wayne, you are the architect of your own creativity!

Love the line hiding the seen showing the unseen!

Love this: "telling nothing telling all" nice touch to a great poem.

Wayne, spoken like an AIA guy with some poetry in his soul... like the use of unseen and tension in design. Cheers.

I once used calculus to calculate the area of a curved room. I figured the client and her architect would be so impressed that we'd get the job.

"Oh, I had the square footage on detail sheet three. Didn't you see that?"

This is a clever poem. All that stuff sounds
very complicated.

Francis Scudellari said...

"telling nothing, telling all" really does sum it up beautifully.

Erin Davis said...

I like it! Architecture houses and facilitates intuition.

yes the best spaces are poetic =)

Does an architect have a poetic soul? I guess it would help. Looking at some buildings, one might not think so - but that might be my soul I'm talking about! Good poem, Wayne.

Lots here to like. Building to the tension, especially. There are far too many buildings with no soul, and too many poems with no foundation.
