Insanity in Miami as a board rejected director acts as director
When faking a Pollock, spelling still matters
Sooo Mark Rothko's mid period watercolors are important for the technical qualities he took with him to the later works
... of course that means his even earlier watercolors (many of Portland) have a similar importance (expect to see a show on this).
It may have a rather boring name but Portland's new bridge is turning out to be rather good
. I like the Donald Macdonald designed bridge and I saw Rosales' earlier design as kind of a kiss up to the retro looking and somewhat conservative architectural tastes in Portland. I think this design better connects Mt Hood to the tree lined heights of the west hills by echoing their angularity. What can I say... I like edge and don't like it when architects pander to the conservative tastes of a city. Macdonald went the right way, you don't build a modern bridge to echo an antiquated design... you use the best technology of the present to create one that reflects the time it was created in.
