Anatomic 420x594 mm Digital Media

Leonardo da Vinci’s study of anatomy was revolutionary, he created realistic human body drawings with such detail that had never been seen before. He created his anatomical drawings by dissecting and observing human corpses, something no artist had ever done before him. While I didn’t dissect anything for these photos, I captured myself in ways I was never comfortable with. Having struggled with body dysmorphia, creating self portraits that show how my body moves with up close details is extremely new and vulnerable for me. These self portraits are inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s new way of looking at the human body’s beautiful details and composition, focusing on muscles/tendons, bones, and the many shapes that they can create.

For this project I chose to use Leornardo’s Virtruvian Man. I decided to take a more modern and minimalistic approach to the illustration as a whole. To do this, I used bright colors and short paintbrush strokes. Doing this made it look very simple, but also made it pop against the black background.

I chose to incorporate Da Vinci’s skull sketch in order to focus on “humanism” and how it relates the soul to the human body. I chose to make half of the sketch colourful to incorporate modernism and show how the mind can differ in perspective in drastic ways.

Internal Beauty Digital Media 245Ă—345 mm

Every day hundreds of people line up at the Louvre Museum to see one of the most famous pieces of arts, Mona Lisa. When people think of Leonardo this is the work they think of, the mysterious smile of Mona Lisa; many question what's behind the smile? When I was thinking of what to make as my cover I thought of this question myself. What is behind Mona Lisa's smile and how can I bring that out into my own piece. I researched Leonardo Da Vinci's illustrations and different pieces. His illustrations of anatomy intrigued me the most because they were vastly different than what I was exposed to when I first learned of Da Vinci as a child. I decided to use a skeleton Mona Lisa with a gold background to symbolize that internal beauty is gold, and that is what I found behind Mona Lisa's smile. However, there are many ways to interpret this piece, so I'll leave it to the viewer to define their version of internal beauty.

INTRODUCTION TO LIGHTING DESIGN CLAUDIO RODEGHIERO The concept developed for this project is focused on a cool space, and more specifically the request for a place which blends a warm and friendly style with the latest trends in aesthetics, in a fusion of materials and finishes which give it an inviting atmosphere. Attention to colors is also requested, which prevails throughout the bar cafeteria and gives a stylish and chic note. Moreover, the use of materials, accurate finishes and furnishings for the bar and the dining area, along with attention to details in the client bathroom, in lighting design and highlighting on floors and walls coverings will give the entire ambience a warm and natural touch perfect for relaxing during clientele leisure time. Each workgroup of Interior Design students has developed the project work defining a concept brief insipired to Rare and Universal: Leonardo's Humanism across Time and Space that will be adopted as a “Client” request. …It is no coincidence today that there is an increased dialogue revolving around a new form of Humanism. It becomes topical every time the question on mankind’s condition and destiny is reopened. We live in times when the pillars of the old world are falling apart – the future of society’s stakeholders remains uncertain while a new era is being born, for better or for worse.It is in this context of crisis and transformation that the issue of human destiny yet again takes center stage.

Invention

Bar Cafeteria

In celebration of Leonardo Da Vinci’s life and the humanist moment, the chosen concept for the Plus Hostels’ Cafe is Invention. This concept was developed from Da Vinci’s talent of engineering and technological abilities as well as the humanist idea of searching for more knowledge and challenging old philosophies. We used his inventions as inspiration to create a space that embraces the past, the foundations of his built machines that kick started an ongoing age of invention and innovation. To further our design we applied a modern twist and a humanist touch to show that there is always more to learn, more to challenge. Our space embodies a rustic style that is both comfortable and relaxing, a space that allows guests to be a part of a collaborative environment or be more independent. This idea is encouraged by the dim, warm lighting as well as the open, but simple space. Our main inspiration is derived from Da Vinci’s invention of the bird wing. This invention inspired us to design our main custom light fixture based off the framework illustrated in his sketches as well as some of our other custom design features. Seeing as how this invention really kick started our design process, we chose to name the cafe, Volare, which means to fly in Italian. The idea of flying also represents the humanist idea to explore new ideas, to never settle for what is told.

Equality The idea of equality is derived from the overarching theme of Humanism. When analyzing the unique qualities that build up the Humanism movement, there is the tone of harmony that underlies the philosophical stance. Further abstracting this idea of harmony among the Humanism values, equality is found. For the Bar Restaurant design, an eclectic mix of materials and furniture will mesh seamlessly together to create an energetic, youthful Thibaut Imperial Dragon experience. Representing human diversity, we will incorporate various design styles and decor as a demonstration to the users that experiencing diversity is a beautiful adventure. In the space, areas are distinguished using wayfinding techniques and architectural elements. This space will be Custom Terra Cotta Flooring inviting to all guests and a chance for individuals to experience a journey throughout theLounge design. Organic, geometric, new, and old finishes will be incorporated. Various seating and dining arrangements will also be featured for a customized user experience.

Connect

BOOTH PERSPECTIVE

The concept “connect” is inspired by humanism and the idea that each person is different in their own way, yet we are all equally the same as we are all a part of the human race. We wanted our design to reflect individuality, while encouraging conversation and interaction to display these humanistic qualities Leonardo da Vinci studied. Our custom booth design, along with our logo for the cafeteria intertwines, creating a geometric pattern to represent this idea of connection and bringing individuals together. The cohesive space is designed to flow and operate in a functional way as if you are connecting the dots throughout. The c shaped pattern throughout the design guides the eye and the customers through the space in a visually pleasing and organized way. Employees have a geometric journey through the space, making an easy path from the kitchen to customers, and back. This traffic pattern also reflects our connecting lines and overall concept for the space, representing the contrasting ideas of individuality and connection in a highly functional space.

Concentric Concentric Bar + Restaurant is located within the Plus Hostel in Florence, Italy and is based off of the idea of harmony and unifying the user and the environment. Leonardo da Vinci is another main influence within this project. The vitruvian man was the focal point for our inspiration, with the idea of inscribing the circle and the square to produce the proportions for the human form. All objects used within the space will be geometric and create a harmonic interior. Designing for the age group that will be traveling through the space led to the idea of bright colors and mixtures of patterns to create an energetic space. The furniture layout is brought up into the ceiling layout to be harmonious throughout the space. The flow of the space begins in the lobby, through the bar, into the main dining area and then into the back of house containing the staff areas, the office and the kitchen areas. Placing the bar right near the lobby allows for the visitors to sit and have a drink, if waiting for a table. It also allows the staff to close off the main dining area after hours and allow customers to use the bar area.

Peace

During a time of war and little progression Leonardo Da Vinci introduced a new way of thinking, which was evident in many of his famous works including The Last Supper and Mona Lisa. These works created a sense of peace and unity during a dark time of violence, and brought people together through the arts. The peace that Da Vinci produced through his workwas the inspiration for our bar cafeteria design. Using the basic form of the universal peace sign and a two dimensional shape of the world, we designed an interior space that creates a sense of peace through materials, lighting, and curvaceous forms. Guests will enter, feel relaxed, and have the chance to communicate with the tables around them through an open floor plan. The overall atmosphere is colorful, inviting, relaxing, and peaceful for anyone who enters.
