It 's always fun to play with the architectural forms and volumes. Interweave geometries as
a sculptural body shaking in a voluptuous architectural embrace. Many architectural constructions lean, voluntarily or involuntarily, on metaphoric values and on sexual symbolism.


The semantic, metaphoric and symbolic meaning of architecture is a constant through the ages regardless of the style and the historical period. 


Bernard Tschumi wrote that “Architecture is the ultimate erotic act”.


Carry it to excess and it will reveal both the traces of reason and sensual experience of spaces.


Simultaneously." In these illustrations I like to imagine an anthropomorphic architectures infused by oniric imagination and surreal themes to depict the unconscious double-life of architecture. 


I love the image of Madelon Vriesendorp “Flagrant Delit“, that is a representation of postcoital Empire State and Chrysler Buildings caught in bed by the Rockefeller Building. 


These 12 images represent an (im)possible abacus of an architectural KamaSutra. One way to explore not only the functional component of architecture, but also its capacity of communication highlighting the traces of sexuality and sensuality hidden between shapes. Representing transgression and life hiding under the guise of architecture.
