Ben Van Dusen & Roy Kesrouani "Two Architects" - April 2014
Friday, April 9th - May 7th, 2014
“Cosmic Metropolis” Large Scale Architectural Dreamscapes – Pen and Ink Drawings + Wallpaper + Wrapping Paper + Prints by DC’s own Ben Van Dusen
“Spooning Armchairs” –“A Dangerous Acquaintance with Fresh Archetypes of Lounging” by L.A. based Roy Kesrouani
Cross Mackenzie Gallery is pleased to present two architects whose work has branched off from their traditional architect’s drafting tables (or CAD programs) to bring us fresh designs for our living spaces.
Ben Van Dusen, noted DC architect, has created floor to ceiling pen and ink drawings of his fantastic vision of a utopian built environment. Part M.C. Escher and part Hollywood futuristic set, the drawings take you into deep architectural visual space.
Roy Kesrouani is an LA based architect who has designed gorgeous geometric chairs made from recycled plastic, light-weight, environmentally friendly, based on origami and – surprise – comfortable. They stack or “spoon” to make more open floor space.
These innovative architects are re-thinking our environment with ingenuity, elegance and humor.
