Never Scare the Investors

The Los Angeles Times reviews "Visualizing a New Los Angeles: Architectural Renderings of Carlos Diniz," an exhibition currently underway at Edward Cella Art + Architecture, and a show that features 16 drawings by Diniz, described as the go-to guy for architectural renderings (he drew Cesar Pelli’s Pacific Design Center and Frank Gehry’s Santa Monica Place). "Visual resplendence was the name of the game for Diniz (1928-2001), whose sharp drawings made streamlined efficiency look luxurious, a little racy but not so far out there that investors and committees would be scared off." And were these renderings realistic? [LA Times]
