I feel like I could blog just about Ken McCown’s flickr pictures and have enough material to last me for the next ten years. Ken is a professor of architecture and landscape architecture, and his photographs capture everything from the smallest detail or a shadow to a mixed-media rendering or a landscape. No matter the scale, his photographs mesmerize me.
The deck of Frank Gehry’s Millenium Bridge in Chicago:
A shadow on the floor of The Getty:
Andy Goldsworthy’s Storm King Wall:
I’m so drawn to this mixed-media rendering Ken shared of a view of the City of San Buenaventura in 2050 by Cal Poly Pomona, Joan Woodward, Ken McCown, Matt Deines, Henry Fleishmann, Sonya Reed, Isby Swick, Yarnie Chen with Doug Delgado and Phil Pregill:
The aerial context rendering for a re-use of the airport in Quito, Ecuador. This was a competition where Ken and his team received an honorable mention. He collaborated with Gabriel Diaz-Montemayor,
Kevin Hinders, Andy Wilcox (he calls him “the guy with the magic hands”), Milagros Zingoni, Tyler Stradling, and Samantha Sears:
