Starck: Design Is Dead, Sorry

Filed under: Fashion (Facism) — quietglow @ 10:13 am

Maybe anyway, since the article is in german.

I agree with the comment that suggests that the take-away here is that the design world will no longer have to live with the embarrassing starck cult of personality (combined with the kinda crappy stuff that he makes).

Build a modern museum on the Presidio?

Filed under: Architecture — quietglow @ 6:27 am

Excellent thought pump.

The Presidio is such a quiet, unexpected place in SF. In the middle of the highest dollar land in the country there is this inexplicable huge sorta derelict old army base. It always seems like a perfect place for a haunting. The owner and founder of Gap (who has a history of being a classic overrich republican) wants to house his admittedly awesome art collection in a nice modern gallery, right in the heart of it.

Interesting that he has secured a pretty well known architect willing to do this–I don’t think it would be nearly as easy to have done so 50 years ago or so. Lots of people who are claiming architecture has become simply an expression of wealth will use this as an example if it happens.

He wrote it himself

The Obama speech was the first delivered by a president or a presidential candidate written w/o the aid of a speech writer since 1969. Seriously.

I think this may be the the one that hits me the hardest of this unfortunate roll.

A bit of sadness here in Wisconsin today.

I dunno why, but this self-filmed flick made me proud to share a generation with Tony Hawk.

      Bizarre Fashion Show

      Filed under: Uncategorized — dagabairtilo @ 12:20 pm

      Or rather, bizarre grounds to take part in a fashion show.
