The times they are a changin’…

At the end of last year the titles boosted that “it was fun till the money ran out” – an insightful article by Nicolai Ouroussouf that recently came to my attention. Now, it seems like starchitects are indeed being caught in a spell of bad luck.

It is only too obvious in the major scheme of things that the CCTV hotel, by OMA, had to go down in a fire set by a Chinese new year firecracker. That’s what I would call a ill omen joke.

  1. i’m a bit more apocalyptic: “it’s the end of the world as we know it (and i feel fine)”.

    o que me interessa aqui são as consequências culturais desta Crise, supimpa e deliciosamente assinalada por este incidente que é bem capaz de ser simbólico. algo morre, algo começa aqui.

  3. Escrevi sobre estes dois textos para a A21. Já o temos online no site do atelier.
    Um abraço

    • Parece-me muito bem. Acabei de descobrir a A21 nas bancas – espantosamente não fazia a mínima ideia que ia sair – e, depois de a folhear, estou a escrever uma “carta ao director” de impressões sobre a crise… Logo, retribuirei a tua visita!😉

  4. isso é que me parece bem, “as impressaões sobre a crise”.
