Modern architecture

March 29th, 2013 by Vader

The rebels seem to have captured the latest Death Star plans. And then they actually built the thing.

Or most of it, anyway.

Thus Lileks:

But. It’s obvious to anyone that there are breaks, changes, new assumptions, paradigm shifts. This, for example, is proof of an artistic discipline gone mad. I find myself so annoyed and dismayed by modern architecture it makes me wonder whether I’ve really lost the ability to appreciate it – a painful fact if true, since I’ve been a lover of architecture all my life and cheered on post-modernism and the new ideas in the 80s and 90s. But. My G-d, that thing is literally monstrous. And it’s in Paris. It’s like something you would see looming in a nightmare, a glass slug, the tentacles on top waving.

This appears to be the Death Star post-core explosion.

Call me a philistine, but is it, um, finished?

Are you suggesting it’s not fully erected yet?

Vader, ignoring your double-entendre, the picture is an artist’s or an architect’s rendition of a proposed building. It has not been built, nor even been approved for building yet.

If skyscrapers are phalluses, that one belongs to an injured cylon.

Bookslinger,

So there’s still hope that saner minds will prevail?
