Donald Kuspit considers the history
of shit in art
Despite the crashing stock market today there will be new condos by HdeM
in NYC... both have already broken ground and something tells me the people
who already bought their penthouses will still be able to afford these. Funny
how NYC can get cool condos by HdeM
but hasn't been capable of
designed by these two topnotch talents. Architecture is
always defined by the client and though I'm sure the condos will be nice...
no high density residential design can hope to take very many chances... and
certainly not as many as a museum project could conceivably afford.
Architecture discusses a potential 600 foot observation tower
city's center (it is also a wind power generator). I want to see pics ASAP...
this could be great if the design is up to snuff (an icon of Portland's new
and bolder commitment to a better way of living) or tragic if it isn't. *Update
Brian Libby has published the images and weighs in
. Also, Randy Gragg of Portland Spaces has interviewed the developer
