(when mortals sleep; unpublished fiction)
question: what is wrong with this world?
response: everybody pays attention to pictures of things. nobody pays attention to things themselves.
what a beautiful composition of rhythm, light and materials. i am in love with carlo scarpa’s works.
- how should the precise composition of materials illustrate the vitruvian values – firmitas, utilities, venustas?
- solidity, utility, beauty. through a series of conscientious rhythmic compositions, design becomes like notes off a music sheet, neither abstract nor figurative, but rather finding its soul embodied in space and events
- we begin to witness contemporary canons of design evoking a strong air of nostalgia and collectibility, perhaps if one could ‘pick the shells’ and continue to feed off this phenomenological observation together with its construction of principles, meet a neo-discourse, that bridging space, time, architecture, material, rhythm and language into a single voluminous acquisition that is quasi-endless in nature?
- the very depths of observing architectural phenomena may very well enable us to apply our quantitative data with spot precision into this contemporary age.
- resist fashionable architecture; push the aesthetic tolerance, show a true section by rejecting desirable boundaries.
- things mature with time, stay curious and walk.
‘above all, do not lose your desire to walk. everyday i walk myself into a state of well-being & walk away from every illness. i have walked myself into my best thoughts, & i know of no thoughts so burdensome that one cannot walk away from.’ – søren kierkegaard
i wouldn’t want to be part of an ‘ikea’ society.
what good is a mind if not to resist and question.
