Ok we are nearing the end of the conceptual phase of PORT's redesign and moving into the actual site redevelopment. The funny thing is it won't look that different when it is done but the refinements and flexibility it will offer us will be quantum.
You should see it by the end of summer and yes we will have bash as an unveiling
+ a somewhat belated celebration of our 2 year anniversary.
Till then check out these interesting bits:
garden in Slovenia is frankly awesome
, something about plants and architecture
really works. A restaurant or lounge like this would go over really well in
Portland. Ok so the Hanging
Gardens of Babylon
provide a pretty good template for this type symbiotecture.
Yorker review of the must miss but must discuss Transformers movie
certainly a better use of your time than the actual movie. I want Wes Anderson
to do a Gobots
movie with David Bowie as Leader1 and Lyle Lovett as Cy-kill. Um, yes... a musical,
does it deserve any less?
Lastly Jerry Saltz did a good thing by avoiding
the opening hooplah of the Venice Biennale and his take
points out a new
direction for him, having the last word rather than the first. Also, Saltz's
recent take on Biennial culture
is almost as funny as the whole transforming
robot obsession. Jerry how about a your first broadway musical?.. call it "Biennial."
Kelsey Grammar, William Shattner, Courney Love and maybe Nicholas Cage would
all be good people to play curators.
Allright, I've abused the whole lets turn it into a musical meme enough now.
