KG quotes


Last Thursday after one night without sleeping because of my final critique of my shoplifting project I went to the Serpentine Dialogues with Konstantin Gric and Alice Rawsthom. He was presenting the new exhibition he has organized called Design Real in the Serpentine Gallery of London. (Please don't hesitate to check oute the web they have developed for the exhibition which is really interesting)

Here I will write down some of the quotes he said:
"Design are many things that live in pharallel"
"The car is the championship of design"
"Product thinking could be also an extravaganza"... "There are many things that try to be moral"... "Just beautiful, just this purpose is the expresion of an individual in society"
"Are the principies of the XX century relevant today?", "Now is more broad, Modernisim build ideas on tools and on what they had, nowadays rather than projection we think about today, about the reality of our world"
"The quality of design is something specific and related with the context (when, where, who)"
"Style is a process, a way of working, is not abput formality"
"The pleasure id the romance I have with this objects..."

Putney Place









London's Wandsworth Council has refused planning permission to Will Alsop's Putney Place design, justifying the decision because the towers would "loom large" over what is an area with modest height.
The Mayor of London's office has also made it clear they won't back the scheme, perhaps the clearest example yet of Boris Johnson not wanting tall buildings in the Tory suburbs of London.

MAXXI-Hadid



True to form, Zaha Hadid's long-awaited MAXXI museum in Rome is bold, demanding and provocative, says Rowan Moore.







It is clearly intended to send a message that Rome's spectacular history of architecture is not over.




It is something you can not comprehend in one go, that has to be unravelled trough walking around.





The interior makes individual experience and shared spectacle out of the flow of people through the building.


The numbers: start on site 2003/ contract duration of 9 years / gross internal floor area 30 000m2 / Total cost 150 million euros / cost per m2 5000 euros
