Towers of Power

These works explore the invisible systems of power that govern everyday existence. Towers are symbols of male power erected to facilitate ascension and watchfulness. Form follows function in the design of airport control towers, but the resulting rationality of the built structure asserts masculine power, virility, harmony, proportion and control. This family of strictly utilitarian architecture are structures that resonate with aesthetic harmony and are charged with potent symbolism.
