stepping aside

Dear no, too self We’ve been expecting too much of each other of late, I think we need to take a break. No, wait, don’t get upset. It’s not about you, it’s me, it’s my fault. I’ve promised you so much and let you down so often. You deserve better. I think we need to […]

breaking up is hard to do

Following my previous dalliances with that odd French philosophy, deconstruction; I’ve just added to the list of philosophers break-up lines over at ‘Thoughts, Arguments and Rants’ (found via growabrain). Deconstructivist: ‘I don’t even know if it’s about me or about you, I can’t tell what’s right or wrong. All I know is that something has […]

For Al, Joseph and Nikos

My friend Al just got back from a weekend in Paris but he didn’t have time to visit Parc de la Villete; Joseph Clarke of That Brutal Joint is in Paris this week and has just posted his thoughts on Parc de la Villette; and for all I know Nikos Salingaros may even be in […]

I should explain that the building in question was the new Selfridges store by Future Systems. I had an entry about it written on my PDA, but a clumsy battery replacement wiped it […]

back and forth

It seems this one just doesn’t want to lie down. Salingaros posted a response to the criticism of his paper on Tschumi, and Brutal Joint followed it with a response to the response. City Comforts just filed a response to the response to the response. It went like this: Salingaros… Note that we are not […]

It’s been a busy week. There are a couple of entries waiting to be written, including one about the galleries I’ve been able to visit over the last few days. In the meantime, I’m posting an image instead of words. Predictably, looking at the art work of others has made me think about my own […]
