Re: Architecture and Urban Planning.
I'm interested in the interaction between architectural landscape and culture, urban planning, renewal, things like that. On a lesser level, I appreciate the aesthetics of architecture for itself, in particular how it translates to film, i.e. what makes a landscape photogenic in pictures and on film. If anyone wants to comment on this I'd be very interested to hear. (You can PM or something if you're shy.
Starting on some Jane Jacobs reading, and also in the process of getting some things from Koolhaas.
A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.
