(most modern?) rear-view architecture
...[the] suggestion of hi-tech military tents as ideal housing for the homeless is a definate forerunner for the "most modern building of the 21st century" category.

Re: Aesthetic Intentions
Ludwig II of Bavaria well understood the potential of absolute monarchy, and it seems architecturally evident that he intended to fulfill that potential. I doubt it escaped Ludwig's cognition that monarchs are rare, absolute monarchs even more rare, and mid-nineteenth century monarchs (like himself), absolute or otherwise, were an endangered species.
Ludwig II took the notion of (European) absolute monarchy to its final extreme, and each of his major buildings, Neuschwanstein, Linderhof, and Herrenchimsee, are Gesamptkunstwerks (architecture, decorative arts, music, theater, mythology) that reenact absolute monarchy, as much as they represent a race against time (specifically, the race of European monarchy against time). Ludwig and his younger brother Otto (the real mentally ill member of his immediate family) were literally the end of their family's line. Ludwig was an extreme European monarch in every sense, and his architecture is also extreme European royal architecture in every sense--consummate examples of Zeitgeist and its effects.
I believe Ludwig II achieved his intentions as far as he could take them. But I doubt even he was aware of manifesting an architecture that will forever spark architectural imaginations.

...found out this morning Karl Friedrich Schinkel "on 11 September 1840, had fallen into a coma and paralysis from which, apart from a few moments of clarity, he never awakened." Schinkel died 9 October 1841.

church and synagogue
Since learning that Le Corbusier's St. Pierre at Firminy-Vert is again under construction and slated for completion 2006, I had been thinking about the 3D CAD model of this building design in Quondam's collection. I was reminded of (a set of 1998 Quondam web pages that exhibited) how the plan of St. Pierre fit very nicely into the sanctuary of Louis Kahn's Hurva Synagogue.
Yesterday, I placed the model of St. Pierre inside the model of Hurva Synagogue, and started rendering images of the results. I thought I was really just playing until I thought about the architectural implications of designing a Roman Catholic Church within a Jewish Synagogue. Would such an architecture speak to how Christianity is more or less wrapped in Judaism? And, given the nature of the Hurva design, there is every evocation of St. Pierre being "wrapped within ruins."

You know that St. Pierre/Hurva Synagogue model I just wrote about generating yesterday? Well, you know what? It looks just like a Mosque!

Zumthor "Thinking Architecture"
After reading all the fuss over this book, I read it a couple of years ago and found it forgettable...

Architecture as Signal
Real architecture is all about seams that architects most often want covered up.

Maybe some architecture courses should be taught by blind people.

bilocation, etc.
I occurred to me last night that active participation within an online forum is like a degree short of actual bilocation. It's the speed of light involved that brings the degree of separation down to the minimum. I wonder if bilocation will be recognized as a part of network culture.
Read about half of Heidegger's "The Thing" last night. A few pages in, Heidegger's writing started to remind me of Gertrude Stein's writing.
Found out on 2009.03.20 that the base of the Eiffel Tower is just slightly larger than the base of Hadrian's Tomb. Thus directly over Hadrian's tomb is the Eiffel Tower's position within Ichnographia Quondam.
