WELCOME

Roving notes made at the pace of an exciting journey, narrative logbook of emotions and senses, walking between architectural spaces bathed in light, surrounded by landscape, or creating landscape.

As in a moleskine -that notebook where travelers compiled writings and drawings of their visits- this blog offers you, gentle reader, my own collection and my personal experience about visited sites in the recent years.

This is a compilation of visited places, it is my attempt to share an unforgettable experience with you.

Welcome to My Architectural Moleskine, notes on architecture... and more.

  6. Dear Carlos,

    I work at the British Museum in the membership department. We recently filmed a lecture given by the museum's head of Americas curator, Colin McEwan, in which he used one of your photographs: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_J0XsQeUu1tE/Ros69cVGYMI/AAAAAAAACqA/9GqJ1ecBXcY/s1600-h/mountains.jpg
    I would like to ask your permission to use this image in our video publication. If you are so kind as to give us permission, please could you email me at friends@britishmuseum.org to give us an appropriate credit line and to discuss this further.
    Many thanks,

  14. Hello Carlos.

    I'm writing from a company in the UK called Centre Screen Productions. We are producing content for the new Olympic Museum in Lausanne and I was interested to find some great images on the Vancouver Winter Olympics on your blog - particularly the Richmond Oval.
    I was wondering if you could grant permission for us to use some of these in an interactive exhibit that looks at sustainability.

    I'd be interested to speak to you regarding any other images you might have or any construction diagrams that we could use to demonstrate sustainability at the Olympic Games?

    Please would you email me on laura@centrescreen.co.uk to discuss. Al images will be credited of course!

    Best wishes, Laura

  15. Hello Carlos,

    I was wondering where you got the drawings of Zumthor's Kolumba Museum. I was hoping to use them for a feature on arcspace.com.

    Do you know who has the rights? Atelier Peter Zumthor or the museum?

    Kind regards,
    Jakob Hybel

  18. Estimado Carlos,
    my nombre es Hernan Casakin, soy arquitecto y docente en Ariel Univesity. Recientemente he publicado un articulo en la conferencia ATINER, llevada a cabo en Julio 2014 en Atenas, titulado "Analogies as Creative Inspiration Sources in the Design Studio: theThe Teamwork". El articulo ha sido seleccionado para ser publicado en la revista Athens Journal of Architecture . En dicho articulo he incluido una foto del Museo de Arte Contemporaneo, Tokyo de Le Corbusier, de su blog. (http://architecturalmoleskine.blogspot.co.il/2011/10/le-corbusier-museum-of-western-art.html) 3era imagen, foto en blanco y negro.
    Estaria muy agradecido si pudiera concederme el permiso para publicar dicha fotografia. En caso de no ser posible, le agradeceria si pudiera concederme el permiso para reemplazar dicha fotografia por la fotografia del modelo realizada por Emmanuelle Mastrangioli.
    Dado que el editor de la revista esta esperando mi respuesta a la maxima brevedad, le agradeceria si me pudiera responder lo antes posible a mi cuenta de casakin@ariel.ac.il
    Desde ya muchisimas gracias por su gentil ayuda.
    Cordiales saludos

  20. Hi Carlos, Your photos of Vancouver's Van Dusen Botanical Gardens are absolutely beautiful. I am so taken by them I can't begin to describe how much I would love to see the sites in person. I live in Richmond, Virginia, the home of Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens. I don't know if you have ever visited, but they are worth the trip. I want to do a story on the 30th anniversary of Van Dusen Botanical Gardens Festival of Lights, and I would love to include the pictures of the lifgt displays in your album on this site, plus a couple of the scenic views. I would give the proper credit due to you if I am allowed to use them. May I? Please?
