Cesar Pelli Volcano 14 x 20"


VOLCANO designed by CESAR PELLI, 2000

New Haven, Connecticut Architect Cesar Pelli long known for his skyscrapers and elegant buildings brings a feeling of “exaggerated structure” to his volcano. A bright yellow ball doubles as the lid and a red body with black “ramps” accents the body. You might be tempted to use “volcano” as a prototype to make the perfect beach castle, but its great design and utilitarian size make it a perfect vessel for those after dinner treats not to mention the perfect conversation piece. 14 x 20″

Lithograph is signed and numbered in an edition of 99.

"Visibility and image for the Art Center were achieved with a hexagonal, glass-enclosed entry pavilion. The pavilion faces the Vassar entrance from a new courtyard that we created with an open colonnade designed as a modern, free-standing extension of the existing buttresses on the existing buildings. The design of the wristwatch face was an elaboration of these forms that, for me and the Vassar Art Center, have acquired an iconic value."
