Since the passing of my step-father, Carlos Diniz in 2001, my family and I have been engaged in the management of and preservation of his archive of architectural drawings and paintings.
I am very proud to present, at long last, a website that we have assembled to honor Carlos’ many achievements in the architectural illustration profession. It is our intent to inform a broader public of the legacy he left after forty plus years of producing beautiful drawings, paintings, lithographs and silkscreen art prints for some of the premier architects of the late twentieth century.
With a recent article in Dwell Magazine and the inclusion of several pieces in the recent Pacific Standard Time show at Los Angeles County Museum of Art, I am happy to say that there is a growing interest in the Diniz archive.
It is my belief that the tradition of drawing and application of fundamental artistic principles should continue to play an integral part in the development and presentation of architecture in the digital age. It is my hope that this website will enlighten and inspire others to pursue that goal.
