    Hitler is surprised to learn who designed the architecture building

    Javier Arbona Oct 31 '11 7

    Via Mason White... Someone made a "Hitler finds out" that roasts Rem Koolhaas/OMA's design for Milstein Hall at Cornell University and the admin who chose him... Someone perhaps with a not-unjustified love for Barkow Leibinger. Even Steven Holl gets name-checked. And the old order of the Texas Rangers will be erased from the collective memory.

      LMFAO - kudos to the collective minds that produced this!! We long-suffering alums feel vindicated. We will learn to love Rem's design, but WE WILL ridicule it. It is our privilege after suffering 5 years at the mast.

About this Blog

A bezoar is a mass of disparate pieces and materials. For this blog, you will find something somewhere between tweet-length posts and tumblelogging; inchoate thoughts; provocations and assorted scraps that don't fit anyplace else; criticisms of a political and geographic variety; ecoaffective ramblings; spatial imaginaries that don't conform.
