JN, was spotted few nights back at the ultimate hot spot of Paris @Arc Club.
WHAT CRISIS BITCH!
STARchitects like him fear no goverment, laws or legislations.
Figuring among thousands of posters in teenagers rooms (specially in China) is by far one of our role model in the bis of architecture.
BIG UP JN
As he oftenly shouts when drunk
“Nouvel is my name, rolling is my game!”
(JN doing his thing @Arc backstage)
sneak peak: interview action
In the case of JN, behind this great designer lies a whole army of Chinese slaves a.k.a CAD/3D monkeys.
We recently got informed that there will be a sort of REVOLUTION-RESISTANCE taking place in his Paris Headquarters since chinese employees have not been fed nor seen the sun for the last couple of months! Post will come later regarding this issue.
Numerous and difficult “tasks” have to be succesfully fullfilled if you are CHINESE and want to work for JN!
Contemporary Greek philosopher based in NewYork elaborates on the recent trend of starchitects having chinese guys as slaves in their offices!
Finding photos of tom on the net is almost impossible. However we found some super classified material from a jury where the high-roller God from west side was giving his wisdom for free! yes for free; in the name of education etc.
as you can see even Eric Owen Fucking Moss came along to roll with Tom!
Hernan the minimalist is getting angry^^
*There is also a 1hour lecture by THE TOM but i dont think anyone will bother watching it. Is about how he left the small town of Vienna where he was actually designing stuff to join the sci-arc crew, turn into a Level85-Bullshitter and get numerous awards in the way.
Extract from the writing “ENDLESSNESSLESS”, by ROCHE&Sie(n)
“More than a key..it’s an ‘apparatus’..In a paranoid sense, an apparatus for submitting and being submitted to a large spectrum of interpretations, from self-illusion freak three-dimensional effects. We could consider this ‘suspended time’ as the first apparatus, or , more precisely, how the relationship strategies that are embedded in this ‘moment’ simultaneously articulate knowledge and are articulated by knowledge. The two little girls are looking at the production of their 0wn paranoias, transforming, at the same time, the representation of our own reality. They articulate fiction and reality, by creating through their subjectivities a narration that renegotiates with tangible substances. We are directly confronted with the boundaries of the system, where, from this scripted confusion, emerges an apparatus which is at the same time revealing the absence of boundaries of self-conciousness..“
we have allways been dreamers..from Socrates to Benjamin Franklin..
from Jesus to Gandhi..it’s only that some of our visions for the future might seem a bit….”useless”. Despite, I find the images below, displaying gadgets invented in the early 20th century, extremely appealing. Concepts such as human/artificial prosthetics, meachanics and robotics, and the implementations-anthropological, social, ethical etc- lying behind the introduction of such layers in our every day life are extremely aspiring and make us challenge and redefine the projection of our species into the future.
below you will find the hip-and-handy smoke umbrella, a chic-and-tredy vacuum beauty helmet treatment, a sneaky cigaret case, a bike for the whole family(of course the Mom can never rest so practises her sewing techniques..), and my personal favorite the cannon scooter. I am wondering how this last one can help us rethink the ways wa conceive and plan our cities…
*I believe that most of you are already familiar with the online beta script, providing endless 3word combos -a common fetisch shared by architects, handy when it comes to mental masturbation gymnastics- of instant bullshit.
[ if you dont already know about it, here is ze link, enjoy ;)
..and last but not least, the endlessly charismatic, an interdisciplinary all-arounder , Jorge Ayala. He is the man behind the Landscape Urbanism theory -at least so he claims, allthough projects engaging such an approach have been around since the early ’90s- and iconic 21st century buildings, such as the Xian International Horticultural Expo-Jorge and Plasma studio have been running a collaborative approach on the whole LU thingy- project, and the F(AA)shion workshop, a programm initiated by the AA, held last spring in Paris under his supervision and coordination . Keep an eye on him guys…!
while waiting with the new entries for this year’s presidents medals to come out and laugh for days and days with some philosophical/pseudo-philosophical blather like:
“…A place where an infinite lives meet an infinite book and their endless attempts to extract and catalogue its contents into an infinite library…”
“…The cultural and philosophical position considers Marc Augé’s ethnology of transient space in his definition of ‘non-places’ and depicts a dysfunctional user at the centre of the proposition cast adrift somewhere in the motorway network. The project is both an architectural proposal and a fleeting portrait of a modern life and is a polemic in respect of our modern condition of placelessness and exile.”
all we can show you is:
*If you are lucky we might show you a few highlights from final diploma jurys in Paris so we can all laugh or cry together.
Maybe we can write about the chinese people hidden in the basement of Nouvel’s office.who knows
