Outside and inside of my work life at Gensler in Oakland, California, I try my best to find those valuable moments of free time to draw and sketch the events, spaces and environments on my journeys... I think about Robert Byron touring through regions of the Middle East in search of unique towers and monuments, and I think of the young Bruce Chatwin venturing through portions of South America and falling in love with Patagonia...Douglas Wittnebel...
The blog serves as a collection space for a variety of musings and observations of the world around us...through the use of sketches, drawings, photos, images and videos...intended to be shared and to stimulate thoughts, ideas and inspirations...douglas wittnebel
Myōjō-ji Temple consists of a set of large buildings, set on atop a hill, which were created over the last six centuries. One of them is the priest’s living quarters, built in 1593, and some of the more striking ones include the Goju-no-To (35m tall 5 storied pagoda) built in 1618 and the Joroku-do Hall, located at the very far end of the temple.
