Hi
Now in a lot of european cities the old parts of the cities been replaced with cold box shaped glass monsters. Places where only zombies will like to stay. Even you find a parking spot there are no reson to go to these places ,unless you work in the main office of an insurance company or a state department where most work done are knitting. Intire cities been transformed into postmodern hell or rather postmodern boring life. Nothing to se , nothing to investigate nothing but huge cold surfaces with windows and doors that serve functions being stop booms for bums. No benches and to far distances trees die and if a bush survive it is cut square.
Sorry ----- some artwork still are placed around, as wierd stainless geometric lookalike keep art as what it is, a mirror showing how far art develobed into meaninglessness and ugly or non reflective forms saying nothing but that the inviroment are poison for the human spirit.
Want examples , ---- sorry but these are so many that it is difficult to chose. Still the intire academic grosery keep praising these unhumane inviroments caused by their triangles, sterilised yellow brickwork and Lego ideology.
No details, nothing beautifull, no endless mazes only boring cold postmodernism , --- and noone se it, esp. not the architects they still fancy Lego.
