Sign Your Famous Architect Name on the Dotted Line

It’s a slow Tuesday at the end of summer, so let’s take a little break from all this serious news business for a second and turn our attentions to something a bit more relaxed and fun, shall we? Life of an Architect has put up this great post, “Architects and Their Signatures,” offering up tongue-in-cheek handwriting analysis for a handful (puns!) of famous architects. What does Frank Lloyd Wright‘s compact lettering or Renzo Piano‘s four, tight wavy lines say about them? You surely won’t have an answer to those questions from this post, but it’s a fun time and likely just as valuable as real handwriting analysis regardless. Here’s one of our favorites:

What can you say about the signature of Richard Meier? Completely illegible (does it say “Texas” at the end??) which is a clear indication of assumed stardom and self-importance … but the squiggly line embellishment at the bottom (closely resembling a sad clown smile) is an attempt after the fact of a strong desire for our love and acceptance. Meier has built a career based on the theories of others – particularly Le Corbusier – and the casual self-importance and self-loathing present in the beginning, middle and end of this signature speak volumes … and a love of the color white.
