Palais des Congrès
Outline of the Palais des Congrès document:
1. Documentation: the building and site
2. Design analysis
3. Comparative analysis.
The first part of the design analysis addresses is the similarity between the Palais des Congrès and the Villa Savoye which discloses the architectural promenade formula. Next, the two interior forums of the Palais des Congrès are compared to the interiors of the Palace of the Soviets. Third, the stage set within the Palais is compared to the Maison Dom-ino, and call out the stage set as a paradigm of Le Corbusier's overall design message and methodology.
Within the comparative analysis, the Palais des Congrès will be collaged with other buildings, particularly with St. Pierre at Firminy-Vert.

Why is everyone bashing OMA and Rem Koolhaas?
What the Seattle Public Library has done is add new dimensions (literally) to urban public space. If you think about it, there really are not many interior public spaces that are free to enter or free in the sense of non-commercial. Even government buildings now have layers of security that make them less openly public. Whatever the SPL may do offensively to the street it more than makes up for with the abundance of dynamic and engaging public space inside. Is there any other public space in downtown Seattle that can match?

Why is everyone bashing OMA and Rem Koolhaas?
No where did I say or imply that if the inside is nice, then the outside doesn't need to be nice, thus I am not guilty of taking a cynical view of civic space. Now, after looking at large photographs (in El Croquis 134/135) of all four sides of the library, the outside doesn't look all that offensive; granted it's all large scaled, but the streets don't look like they're really suffering because of the building. So again, what the library has done is create a whole new dimension of free public space on the inside, and this is something that is increasing rare when it comes to urban public space (which is exactly why the homeless are attracted to the space--Philadelphia's downtown public library, a great beaux-arts pile, also attracts homeless people because there really is no other free indoor public space).

Exhibition Review: 'Building the Picture: Architecture in Italian Renaissance Paintings'
There was an exhibit at Quondam in 2001 entitled house/museum which featured some "buildings in painting" very similar to the National Gallery exhibit.

Art + Architecture: Schumacher vs. Post-Net


After living there for 48 years and moving out late October 2006, I never thought I'd see the inside of my old house again. Just two days ago I was surprised and quickly saddened by some interior images of my old house online, taken apparently like a year ago:

You can consider this post a work of post-internet art entitled Learning from Virtual Museum to Oblivion.
