One year later. Remembering Adam Yauch and his NYC window view (from 2009)
Just found this in my drawer:
Probably the *very* first window view drawing I ever did, from my children’s book “The True Story of Stellina” (Stellina is the bird looking out the window)
With Lorin Stein, a conversation about narratives through the use of lines in drawings, words in stories and space in architecture.
FINESTRA SULL’ITALIA | SEPTEMBER 2012 | FINAL INSTALLMENT
The view from my studio:
“It’s been more than two years since the beginning of this journey through Italy’s windows. After the first view, from our kitchen here in Turin, we’ve been almost everywhere (in the Marches, Liguria, Sicily, Veneto, Tuscany, Basilicata, Apulia, Lombardy, Campania, among other regions). Now, for the series’s final installment, we are back in Turin, with the view from my studio window. As this journey comes to an end, I have an even stronger sense that windows are like mirrors: they reveal much more about us and our lives than they do about the very landscape we see through them.”
LABORATORY OF LITERARY ARCHITECTURE
The 2012 LoLA course at the Scuola Holden in Turin ended on Friday May 25th. The students did such wonderful work. The “adopt an architect” part of the course, i.e. getting a group of nine architecture students from the Polytechnic of Milan to come and help the creative writing students to build their models, worked out perfectly. Professor Lucio Speca put together a “dream team” of young, motivated and ego-less students.
La Stampa (the Italian national newspaper) dedicated a whole page to the course. See the page here.

“In a city with so much going on it feels calming to come home, look out the window and see the Hudson River. I’m not sure why, but looking at a large body of water seems to do that. I don’t know how much longer we’ll have this view. In NYC it’s only a matter of time before someone builds in front of you, but we’ve been lucky enough to enjoy our view for ten years, and have hopes it will last a bit longer.” —Adam Yauch
