There is a frequent poster here who is a very very very famous starchitect... can someone guess who that is?

Crap, you've got me...

Hey, Winy Maas.​


:) ...interviewed with him once though...


Hahaha Sparking intrigue to the topic. But yeah you'd be my first suspect since you mentioned before in another thread you went to TU Delft, and you're in the Netherlands, etc. :)


I did have a meeting the other day with a guy who sat next to Winy on a plane, Winy even sat in his seat at first...


You caught me... 

I'm Ted Mosby.

who cares

Feb 13, 18 12:19 pm

Sounds like someone is being catfished.

Shit. I thought changing my name to a liquor would be adequate disguise.

Feb 13, 18 4:36 pm

Balkins is a star, we all know that.

Other than me?

i'd guess patrik, but i don't think he could stand the anonymity and lack of attention.

Feb 13, 18 8:33 pm

Schumacher was posting for a period under his real name, in a thread that called his randian theories into question, if memory serves me well...


Is it Daniel Libeskind?

Feb 13, 18 8:36 pm

Daniel Libes-kid.


Kind already means kid in Dutch/German/Yiddish, and Libeskind or rather Liebeskind means love child in German I guess and sweetheart in Yiddish, not sure something like that or other way around.

It couldn't be Patrik, he can't get both feet out of his mouth at the same time.

Unless he's posting as JawkneeMusic.

Feb 13, 18 9:03 pm


Whoever he or she is, if the rumour is true, I hope they're not avoiding the action over in "guess the plan"

Feb 13, 18 11:15 pm

...Greg Lynn or Hernan Diaz Alonso? The first would be casual and chill, the second would be pretty intense...


Neither of them qualify as very very very famous starchitect, do they?


I work in an office of 20+ and I guarantee none of them have ever even heard of archinect. This must be a joke. No offense to the website, I've been here for 10+ years, but if you're chasing work and/or putting together big contracts, you don't have time for posting online. 

Feb 14, 18 12:40 am

Yes, but starchitects have to do something when flying all over the world to present slide shows to students, can't think of a better way to spend time waiting on airports :)

If it's not Brad Pitt I'll be disappointed. I mean I love architects, all of us, even though we all drive me crazy, but frankly I'm more interested in Pitt's opinions on most things <swoon>.

Feb 15, 18 4:25 pm

Aside from a tiny hammer and a couple hundred million Brad has nothing on me.


^ Two famous and (some might say) hot ex-wives?


Tiny hammer? Is he a carpenter too? Brad's a Jack of all trades it seems.


"^ Two famous and (some might say) hot ex-wives?"

Who are both single again, so good luck!

Somebody get the smelling salts ready for Donna

wurdan freo

Hard to tell... but that looks like a finish hammer... plus brads not an Architect...

Miles how did you post that image in a Reply comment? I've not figured out how to do that yet.


(With apologies to Donna) Why is he holding the hammer like that?

wurdan freo

Plus... who wears a watch to a construction one if they're really swinging a hammer...

He's not really hammering, he's DIRECTING. Because he's from HOLLYWOOD. And he's wearing a watch to make sure the crew gets their mandated breaks because he's CARING. And he's wearing a T-shirt because he's SEXY. You guys are mean. ;-)


I do dig those aviator shades, I must admit.


I'm no1

You're something... but it's certainly not a number 1.


no1 as in "no one"

It's Non

But I'm not going to divulge his secret identity.

Feb 21, 18 9:41 am

Eh, doubt it. Non is smarter and more caring than every starchitect I've ever met.

Non Sequitur

Thanks Donna... and Miles, please, don't reveal that I'm Batman.


Are there any other Canadian starchitects besides Gehry?

Non Sequitur

Rando, some, but they are mostly starchitects within Canada only. Non have the philosophical presence of Rem, or Zaha, etc. We're modest quiet folks after all.


Indeed, this entire starchitecture fascination seems un-Canadian by default.

Non Sequitur

indeed. I once had a pint with one we could consider "star" a few years back. He was genuinely interested in my projects and what I had to say. As for true Canadian starchitect, outside of Franky... look no further that Safdie's glorious mustache.

Safdie's mustache is a wonder of the created world, indeed. Is Patkau a starchitect?

Non Sequitur

^only in British Columbia.

Same with MacKay-Lyons Sweetapples on the east coast.


Someone should post that the starchitects Brad Pit commissioned who designed the ultra-modern houses following Katrina had no idea what they were doing in the hot, humid NO climate. As a result many of their houses are rotting and filled with mold and uninhabitable. Also the bizarre forms of many houses took displaced residents, who had already been severely traumatized, way out of their comfort zone. The Katrina Cottages, trite as some here think they may be, is what many residents wanted and were grateful for.

Feb 21, 18 10:59 am

Yeah, Volunteer, I agree; I was really unhappy with most of the Katrina projects by Brad's gang. Not good, and in some cases straight up embarrassing - that one that was bent in the middle, maybe by DSR? Ugh. Horrid.


So Bulgar, who is it? I need to know, asking for a friend.
