favcollage

Thursday, March 23rd, 2006

Wait a minute, if we put Matt and Paul’s favcol project together with Geoff’s landscape printer we might at least get a colour reference for the ‘molten rivers of the city’.

Tag: favcol+wolverhampton = #625E5E

pudding

There was another point to the creme brulee entry, other than simply the celebration of great dessert. It got cut short by workload this morning. The point was also to thank Al for shedding blood, sweat and probably tears to complete an entry for Europan 8 and then, for reasons I won’t go into here, include my name on the submission. I got a few free canapes in return.

Unfortunately his work didn’t make the final cut, but you can see his entry over on my flickr account:

compromise

Tuesday, March 21st, 2006

Catching up with some old Radio 3 programs this evening. Firstly, The Renzo Piano interview by John Tulsa.

RP: “…by the way, architecture is also a very polluted art in the sense that it’s polluted by life, by the complexity of things.”

JT: “By compromise.”

RP: “Yes, by compromise, but in some way this compromised art becomes more real and more true than other art.”

JT: “Because you have to deal with the compromise, you can’t walk away and say ‘I won’t make a compromise.'”

RP: “Exactly, so the secret is that you don’t really do compromise, you are just confronted by life all the time.”

Sounds familiar.

Also worth a listen are the Night Waves: Landmarks programs. For an architectural fix you could try the program on FLW’s Guggenheim and listen for the connection with my old entry entitled That Building.
