Buildings

I love Cedric Price and Gordon Matta-Clark.

We were just at the price rossi stirling + matta-clark exhibit, and I was most impressed by the sketches and pamphlets for Price's Fun Palace and other explorations of indeterminate architecture: "The Fun Palace was not a building in any conventional sense, but was instead a socially interactive machine, highly adaptable to the shifting cultural and social conditions of time and place."

The portrayal of Matta Clark's Anarchitecture was also fascinating and the photomontages - like Conical Intersect - were gorgeous.

Tying this back to yesterday's post, see Entropy, Robert Smithson & Matta-Clark, and I am reminded of Chris Dercon's essay Misusing public space.

I also picked up a few books, and suddenly regret not being able to knit and read at the same time.

But I think it's almost time for cocktails...
