Goeritz is best known for monumental projects that blur the boundaries between sculpture and architecture, like the famous Torres de la Ciudad Satélite, a collaboration with Luis Barragán. He also created a discrete number of works on a smaller, less arch

these images have been in a folder on my desk for a while now. small sculptural works by mathias goeritz. i keep meaning to post something.
if memory serves, i came across them last summer while doing research related to an exhibit called mexican modernisms that featured some seriously stunning architectural feats. amongst them was the work he's probably best known for, the mysteriously transcendant Torres de la Ciudad Satélite, a collaboration with Luis Barragán.
anyways, yetsreday's post on atelier reminded me of them.
i originally learned of goeritz's work via centre for the aesthetic revolution... so imagine my delight when it turns out yesterday's post over there had a mathias goeritz element too. what are the odds? can you imagine?
i ♥ the internet.
please enjoy the time as it passes.
