Sep '04 - Nov '06
So...packed stuff, bought ticket, told lady good-bye, and off I went.
The house is not ready yet, so I'm staying with a friend of a friend's aunt, who speaks portuguese and very little english, and leaves in Wandsworth, which is out of the planet for my posh london standards (like, zone 3, are you shitting me?)
jokes aside, many thanks to her kindness, otherwise i would be spending a fortune in hostels (which, in freakin london, charge Ã‚Â£25 per night).
So, during my frequent trips to the centre, i bumped into a familiar structure...have you seen this pavillion?
YES! is the 2001 serpentine pavillion by toyo ito...
its being kept in the yard of this thing, some of you might recognize it from an album cover...
its a shame since the thing is rusting, and i guess some good soul could buy it...tool shack anyone?
Good news is that squad of builders can be seen around the power station, and i think i saw a borehole drill, so they might have come up with some future for the thing (high-end flats and retail space, who needs another gallery?)
next year: buy your own fake mountain!
apart from that not much to report, 10 days to go...
