Lazy Sunday so we will be sharing you a piece of gold we found on the internet (+)
Our fascination with sophisticated technology lies at the core of many of our present-day problems. Yet, it need not be. By definition, technical virtuosity doesn’t need to result in yet another electronic gadget or an even faster accelerating sports car. It can also lead to stunning yet completely harmless artefacts called “automata”.
These are mostly hand-cranked machines that can be extremely complex, often with the only purpose of astonishing the spectator. Automata have been built for more than 2,000 years, but contemporary artists have elevated the craft to a higher level. Aside from their emotional value, automata offer a glimpse of a future, post-oil technology.
There is a lot to say about the history of automata, but it is the modern work that deserves attention. Contrary to the examples that can be found in museums and old documents, present-day automata do not try to hide their internal mechanisms. The purpose of an automaton is no longer to make a mechanical copy of reality. Today, builders of automata want to evoke emotions, they want to make us dream.
The often fragile combination of gears, wheels and wires, as well as the sounds they make, are now an important part of the whole. Yet, automata are no Rude Goldberg machines, in which the mechanisms have been made needlessly complex. The mechanism of an automaton can be extremely elaborate, but never needlessly so. The makers of automata are not mocking technology, they are celebrating it.
Although not big fans of designboom, we need to to send a big “thank you” to these guys for sharing this killer project (+)
world famous architecture office OODA participated in the recent Istanbul Disaster competition and submitted an actual DISASTER!(hah you see how funny am i? i play with words lol)
we will start with a visitor’s comment on design boom:
“This is terrible.
This is not architecture.
It’s just fitting a program into an arbitrary form, and then wrapping it up with a pattern.”
OODA: “ natural light filters through the facade derived from arabic patterns”
- hah no dude. As soon as you have a hole light will get in + this is not an arabic whatever pattern. Is a grasshoper surface made by your chinese interns in 2 hours using a cube
A new ZARA store will be accommodated in case this entry scoops the first prize (: ,)
Above you can see a new architectural notion. the EGO skin. when you got a perfectly (lol) working building wrap it up with something stoopid and there you go. It probably works better with Arab Clients(thats why we will include in our tags “arab money” for this post)
First year students could fail presenting this plan!
*If someone finds a worst place to place the ADMINISTRATIVE (oh yeah!) OFFICES gets a prize!!
Ok, WHY this FORM?
self explanatory diagram below…
as we started we will finish with a comment of another furious visitor of designboom:
We get a lot of questions recently concerning the inspiration behind our very super famous monsterkills. So to make things easier for YOU, our bot readers, we will be outlining things that we LIKE and DONT LIKE.
I know you little fags tend to be easily fascinated by being an architect, and suddenly start crossing fields and lingering between two/three/four fields. so you go around like chickens with their heads chopped off, screaming stuff like “Oh this guy is such a visionaire”, “fuck what a breakthrough!”, even “Like architecture, fashion is an applied art, meant to be inhabitated and to say something, to express a state of mind, am identity, an aspiration.”, blah blah blah.
So we are about to introduce you with our #24 in the FG BlackBook(the top places are actually reserved for REAL architects we dont like), Peter Marino (+)<=Seriously do NOT bother clicking….
Now this guy goes around claiming his work is all about “architecture”and stuff, but let’s look a bit more carefully.. The guy besides being the definition of colorblind and kitsch, has done nothing more than shops for Chanel, Dior etc.. and maybe one or two residences for some completely tasteless guy in the US(as usual)…
Wouldn’t it be time, mr.Marino, to get out of the closet and tell the world that you have nothing to do with architecture?? Cos seriously you are misleading many students/interns…
Let’s take a closer look to some cases we accidentally stumbled upon on the net.
“In biology, a hermaphrodite is an organism that has
reproductive organs normally associated with both male and
OM F G
Mr. Marino, now these guys think they got something to do with architecture.
However the blame is not all on you, as even the 300M$ Gehry dipped his toe into your little gay domain.
I actually got super mad writing this so to calm down I will
post a picture of something we LIKE.
the man : Oscar fuckingTUAZON spotted fucking up some random space // hardcore stuff
NOTE1 if you do not agree, or, got offended by featuring your little sister in this post, WE DONT GIVE A FU*K!
We firmly believe that when an architect tries to communicate his ideas in order to explain his new masterpiece; the whole presentation transforms into a performance and the architect himself into an artist.
Check below so you can potentially accumulate a few of their techniques into your up coming presentations^^
Once a world reputated architecture guru had told us: “Guys, do you know Dezeen?(.)You should set it as your home page.!“
THIS IS GETTING FUCKIN ANNOYING! Dezeen and architecture have nothing to do one with the other!..unless the latter is celebrating an ultra-mince dimension. Haha…i forgot..too complicated for you stoopid weaklings.! So, if its bigger than my niece’s barbie doll house, or Rem’s (my pet hamster) cage, it will never hit Dezeen Home page.(+)<=== This small cross represents a direct gateway to Dezeens cyborgian portal*
THIS IS GETTING FUCKIN ANNOYING! We found the courage to scroll through 6 whole pages of Dezeen’s minimalistic mafia crap, and 92% of the so-called architecture posts could not even accommodate little Rem’s wheel. I’ve never seen so many “small” projects in one site.! The rest 8% include OMA’s, Zaha’s, BIG’s projects, who are propably sponsoring the site.so they get more square meters published.!
THIS IS GETTING FUCKIN ANNOYING! It’s not that we have a problem with you, but when architecture students get into your site to find stimulation, i get fucking sad…
Extract from this project’s description: “Concept: In a highly built-up area, closed in on all sides, this house offers both privacy and light.”
WoW…Such an inspiring and edgy journalism work you are doing guys.!
Let’s check together the scales being handled by Dezeen.
But because you fell in our trap and can not realize the real scale surfing taking place!
Lets make things a bit more easy for you.
all of these humongous projects have all been published in the last ten days.
NOTE1 As FG we believe Dezeen should quit tagging its post under “architecture”
NOTE2if you want to find some inspiring tags for your posts, dear dezeen staff, you are allowed to use some of our own custom made tags from the tag-cloud(“bitch please” and “threesome” seem to be quite the hit.!)
After a dinner amongst friends(with the delightful presence of miss Scarlet Johanson),we exchanged with Bjarke the curator seat for next year’s2012 Biennale exhibition in Venice for two of chinese interns and a commission for an Opera House in Bangladesh.
So we had them sealed in our basements in Brooklyn for the last couple of days working on our new website. Sleak, neat and easy enough to be read even by you little weaklilngs..
