In Reply to: Mr Whippy versus Mr. Blobby: what's happening to architecture? Plus: what should win the Stirling Prize, but probably won't. posted by Sara on September 23, 2002 at 09:59:56:
I expect to see Foster's cigar appear on the "most hated" lists shortly.
Here's an instance of the limitation of Modern thinking--the architect is so myopic about crafting the discrete OBJECT that he is apparently totaly insensitive to any larger issues, such as urban design or townscape.
This building is totally alienating to everything around it. It may be interesting as a novel element in the scene, but how can you make a city out of replicating this aggresive, assertive, self-referential form?
I hope one of these freaks is sufficient for the world. Too bad a community will have to live with this thing. Glad I'm not there.
