Raphael · The interior of the Pantheon
Galleria degli Uffizi, Florence
A free-hand study of the Pantheon by Raphael which has been completed at the right by another hand in order to show, inaccurately, the entrance. The entrance may have been copied by the second artist from a now lost second drawing by Raphael, and in combining them he compressed them, omitting a fourth tabernacle and a third column-screen, in order to obtain a (false) symmetry. This sheet was probably used by Raphael during an unrecorded Roman visit of 1506 or 1507, a date which corresponds well to the style. (+)
At his request, Raphael was buried in the Pantheon.

Sanatorium Sunburst is a sanatorium for tuberculosis patients, between 1926 and 1931 is built on the outskirts of the forest in Loosdrecht Hilversum. It was designed by Johannes Duiker, in collaboration with his partner Bernard Bijvoet and engineer Jan Gerko Wiebenga.
The sanatorium consists of a main building with attached two patient pavilions, three workshops and the house maid De Koepel. Overall, the complex is made up of three elongated block volumes, which are parallel to each other. Above is a cross-shaped area in which the medical department, the kitchen and the laundry room are listed.
Duiker designed his buildings as light as possible, with minimal material. This pursuit of a weightless structure typified Duiker themselves as “spiritual economy” because the suggestion of the immaterial (so spiritual) would be aroused by the lightness of his building.
