Ai Weiwei And Frank Gehry, Sitting Around And Talking

Ai: “When I see your earlier work, the models that look like you crumpled up a piece of paper that you were going to throw out, I think that’s a breakthrough.” Gehry: “You know, I grew up in the art world — this was the way I wanted to work, more hands-on, sort of like the way you work.” – T — The New York Times Style Magazine

What is happening to our intellectual world?

Literacy — the written word — empowers our “harsh desire to last”. It enables our words to extend beyond our lifetimes. Western literacy is basically a tool to escape death. But the new electric media will likely inform and change literacy. George Steiner notes in a 2002 lecture that all our electric devices are based on Victorian era Boolean logic. We harbour the illusion that our current type of literacy is the result of some inevitable and logical progression, but it only reflects one narrow ...

Inglewood Mayor James Butts Jr. wins third term by huge margin

Inglewood Mayor James T. Butts Jr. easily warded off a well-funded attempt to replace him during Tuesday’s election. Voters weren’t swayed by the expensive television ads, billboards and mailers questioning Butts’ ethics. The incumbent mayor, slated to start his third term, received 63.0 percent of the vote, according to final, unofficial election results. Butts could not be reached for comment Wednesday. In an email ahead of the election, he pointed to the city’s budgeted surplus last year, its...

Can LA leaders convince Angelenos a river runs through it?

As far as Scott Drucker knows, the Los Angeles River is an artificial concrete ditch that runs by his Canoga Park manufacturing business. So when he was asked how he felt about the river, the Woodland Hills resident responded with uncertainty. “The canal right here that runs across?” he asked. Drucker said that it was hard for him to think of the waterway as a river, much less one that had once been entirely natural. “There’s no water in it,” he said. There actually is a bit of water — and occas...

"Is There Such a Thing as 'Good' Prison Design?"

The question in the title of this post got me to thinking about the famous Panopticon building conceived by the English philosopher Jeremy Bentham and also the historic debates over the Pennsylvania system and the Auburn system of prison design in the early Nineteenth Century.  But the title of this post references modern discussions, as it is from this new Architectural Digest article with this subheadline: "Architects working toward creating more livable prisons come up against challenges of e...

In search of genius: CBS Sunday Morning

How to account for a “stroke of genius”? How is it that lightbulb-like flashes of inspiration seem to have touched only a handful of people down through the centuries? That’s the question Mo Rocca explores in our Cover Story: Albert Einstein, Madame Curie, and theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, who passed away last week — we know they’re all geniuses. But what does that mean? To Vint Cerf, genius is not just the matter of intellectual capacity: “It’s the ability to do and think beyond th...

"Most of our cities are built with just faceless glass, only for economies and not for humanities."

Frank Gehry-designed luxury hotel brings avant-garde design to historic Spain winery

The bucolic hills of Spain’s wine country may be one of the last places you’d expect to see a Frank Gehry-designed building, but the starchitect’s iconic deconstructivist style has found home in the heart of the Rioja wine region.

Gehry in Paris

We Don’t Need No Photoshop Recently I’ve mastered some simple tricks in Photoshop. Hoever I’ve visited the Louis Vuiton Museum in the Bois du Boulogne on a day and moment the wheather was purrrfect for photographers. Took many shots and didn’t need any (or hardly any) editing.

One of the biggest real estate developments in London history is this $16.5 billion neighborhood

London's Battersea Power Station has been part of the city fabric for nearly a century. The iconic brick building — which sits in the center of London — was featured in The Beatles' 1965 film "Help!,"  on  the cover of Pink Floyd's 1977 album "Animals," and in the 2010 film "The King's Speech."  It was formerly a coal-fired power station, supplying much of London's electricity until the 1980s. Since then, it has sat mostly abandoned. Now the two million-square-foot building is undergoing a...
