  • One Word

    If there was one word which I could forever delete from the dictionary, it would definitely be architecture. Whithout a blink.
    Because there is nothing more annoying then the question ‘ but is that really architecture?’. Because it doesn’t stand for nothing that it actually could stand for. Because architects use it as an excuse for whatever they don’t have an answer for. Because it’s a word that shouldn’t be in any discussion regarding a project. And mostly because architects use it to define what they do.

    I would actually start with banning it from school names.

    Two brothers. One an incurable optimist (O), the other a hopeless pessimist (P). Christmas. The pessimistic brother gets tons of expensive gifts. The optimistic gets a horse shit. O: What did you get? P: I got so many expensive presents at once, that this is probably my last Christmas. I must have... View full entry

    well... i guess it has been a while. or not?! basically, 1 1/2 months in Ny. somehow i have the feeling that whatever i want to say is ... pointless. i feel like at Mies's Barcelona Pavilion, where i knew that whatever picture i will try to take, it has been taken before. but let's try it anyway...

    Hey, don't be bad and offer some support to the 'freshmen'. It is quite discouraging not to have a comment in the first posts ( I had my first comments only when I posted pictures of getting my tongue pierced - which makes me wonder btw...). Great to see the diversity and appetite of the new... View full entry

    It doesn't necessarily pay of, but it's one of the few 100% true things. The morning is the most critical part of a relationship. The first morning and the shoes. I miss a big city, though I have never lived in a really big city. I like big cities because you can always hide and escape. Or not? I... View full entry

    ...or anything else. Though I am only less then two weeks at home, I don't feel like having been away for 6 month. I guess that is why they call it home. We flew in a small village, at the vacation house, where I spent most of my summers since 92. I feel more connected to this house then to the... View full entry

    I just realized I haven't been eager at all to show anything about Seville or Barcelona. With Seville it's easy: I got the camera in my last week there, week in which I had absolutely no time/mood for pretty much anything. As about Barca... I saw it in 3-4 days, some of it. For some reason (or... View full entry

    What are the chances? In general... for anything. Is everything ”˜prefabricated' or are we more like leaves carried by the wind? Still think though that life is an accident. A crash. A fall. A chance. A flight. And definitely a fight. that's the charm. Ever felt you have a secret... View full entry

    What are the chances of an airport strike on the day that you need a plane? - I guess that is the idea of strikes... What are the chances that you didn't charge the laptop battery exactly on this day? Are airports supposed to have wifi internet? What are the chances that the company is so terrible...

    I found this ticket by mistake in a bus. Don't ask me how. The first row is the bus number, the third the hour and the forth, the date. What I especially liked, besides the more or less obvious pattern (also known as routine) is the fact that 2 times he/she didn't return home alone. That's nice... View full entry

    Well, strangely enough... no progress here. As in all the last weeks, I'm hoping for the next one to answer my questions. Does time really solve things? On a Saturday, at 6 a.m., at an open air club, the bodyguard asked me what my age is! Unconsciously I was about to say 16, turn around and get... View full entry
