My Favorite Things

Artistic expressions play a major role in architect Andrea Clark Grown's life.

any others with that proportion of black and white and the same spirit. I use them sparingly so they’ll last.”

2 This grass ball is a clever display for the set of German, hand-carved farm animals that belonged to Clark Brown’s grandmother. “They’re beautifully carved and primitive, and they still tickle my imagination.”  

3 “This is a gift from my husband [artist John Carroll Long]. It’s called Andrea, and it’s a memory characterization of me. What I love is how it’s rooted, and the arms are expressed as branches reaching out.”

4 “This is bold and associates with my sense of architectural  aesthetic. It’s a re-edition of a Navy Seal watch from World War II, and I love that it served the country and is at the same time very  contemporary.”

5 “This antique set of books by Letarouilly is called Edifices de Rome.  lived in Rome for two-and-a-half years, and I had the  opportunity to see almost all these buildings. I really love to go through the pages of architectural details and memories of the places I visited and sketched myself.”

6 “The piano has been with me my whole life, and it’s part of my identity. It’s a giving and receiving thing—it’s a delight to my soul and to others who enjoy what I play.”
