1. Costa Iberica is a reenactment of Learning from Las Vegas.
3. there is an interesting illustration of how Le Corbusier's La Tourette was "reenacted" by subsequent architectural designs. Don't forget the line about "copying with wit"...

Re: thoughts on body art....
Although I've never read the text myself, I'm pretty sure Adolf Loos in "Ornament Is Crime" has a lot of negative things to say about 'primitive' tattoos. This text became somewhat seminal with regard to the Modern Movement in architecture, and can be seen as precursor of the purist aesthetic of Esprit Nouveau (which later got sort of rehashed as The International Style).
Is "From White Cube to Tattooed Cube" yet to be written?

Iconography, or the problem of representation
Architecture has not reached rock bottom, nor is it likely to do so too anytime soon. What is unfortunate, however, is how architects have for the most part been trained to deny a whole bunch of reality.
"This comparison is not about precedents, rather predictabilities."

Ackerman, in The Architecture of Michelangelo, speaks of Michelangelo demonstrating his ingenuity best when dealing with architectural projects that involved many restrictions, restrictions mostly due to the projects already having been started by others and Michelangelo then having to work with many givens. The lesson I've taken away from this is to not deny the givens and then just maybe my own design ingenuity will come forth.

"Opus is elevated, whereas Arbeit is mercenary; the one yields a civilizational possibility, the other a necessary, often unpleasant, reality."
