As an architect and educator, I love to study da Vinci’s Codex (“manuscript”), a series of portfolios of richly detailed drawings and writings. Historians estimate that some 30 of the Codex’s 90-odd portfolios survive in some form. Each sheet reveals a new set of incredibly intricate images depicting anatomical sections, mechanical devices, fortifications, buildings, and studies in mathematics and geometry. The Italian notes and texts were written backwards (right to left) so they could be read in a mirror. Digitally leafing through the Codex portfolios invites surprise and wonder. da Vinci composed the panoply of drawings, diagrams and texts in … Continued

Professor Jan Wampler’s work as an educator and architect was prominently featured in New Architecture – a prestigious Chinese architectural journal. Jan asked me to write an introduction about him and his work. I was very fortunate to have counted Jan as one of my mentors. Jan inspired hundreds, if not thousands of students during his long tenure as a Professor of Architectural Design at MIT, propelling his students to advance their design abilities beyond what they might have otherwise thought possible. I have come across many students from different generations and locations who attributed Jan’s guidance as being instrumental … Continued
