Revenge of the Clones

They are huge, translucent and square!...
Modernist boxes are taking over the world with pure fury and no remorse. In Ireland Terry Pawson unleashed its complex of boxes in Ireland called VISUAL & the George Bernard Shaw Theatre (above image).

In 2007, Steven Holl created havoc of boxes over Kansas' landscape with its Nelson-Atkins Museum (above image).

And soon, the world will have a taste of David Chippefield's box architecture fierceness with its Kunsthaus in Switzerland (above image).
Who is to blame for these box architecture invasion? Probably Gigon Guyer who quietly released its box massing powers in Swtizerland with its Kirchner Museum in 1992. Who is next to show its box making abilities?.... Don't forget to make it glow at night!

Lego Gaga gone

This can be my profile photo. It fits this site very much. The guy above is toy fanatic, James May who will now give 3.3 Million pieces of lego bricks to charity...

...after the demolition of his life-size lego house in Surrey. It was built one month ago, the owner thought somebody would show interest in buying this project.

Albeit its inspiring feats, nobody did.

Legoland planned to move it to their theme park, but the transportation cost was too pricey.

It was questioned for its environmental unfriendliness. It was said that the pieces of legos were donated by different individuals, so there was recycling. But now that it is being dismantled...

It can be recycled again properly by toyless children, as toys not as house bricks.

Come to think of it, why would one live in it? there are no windows?

It is just a colorful boring modernist box, how can kids like it?...And they don't have money.
