I came back from dublin on sunday. I’ve felt a bit sick but I needed a little walk and went to the hyde park in london. next to the serpentine gallery, in the park, frank o. gehry has build his first ‘object’ in uk. I call it an object on purpose because I think this is the poorest thing from gehry I’ve ever seen. think about the walt disney hall in los angeles, guggenheim museum in bilbao, the dancing house in prague and his beloved chairs and compare this.
so here are 6 pictures and the reasons why I don’t like the pavilion at all. but before I wanna quote this: ‘the architect has likened the complex glazed roof structure to a network of stylized wings’.
serpentine gallery pavilion – let’s play mikado
oh, I see – nice wings. innovative.
oh, they realized that it’s not leak proof
it’s always good to have a snack stall next-door.
luckily some wood was left
hey, when I am planning to a unique piece of design I always use do-it-yourself store balustrades
and because I am at the do-it-yourself store I can buy some other nice widgets to make my work perfect
just see what olafur eliasson did last year and you will get what I am taking about.
