Peter Zumthor didn't like his own "conventional renderings" for LACMA (and will release new images)

You know, if I were a blind person, encountering a building covered with braille might be something that takes my appreciation of both history and architecture to a new level, because then I might have a pretty good idea of how ancient Egyptians felt when they 'sensed' their buildings.

Re: art and architecture 30 years ago
There are several other art and architecture highlights from Life 1972 yet to be included, such as a review of Venturi's work and a photo review of Gehry's cardboard furniture--love the picture of Gehry mid-air about to stomp down on one of his tables, a real 'museum piece'. Plus there is that Botticelli painting valued at over a million dollars then, but still owned (for many generations) by a family of poor Italian farmers. Something in the back of my mind tells me that this painting was later disclosed as a fraud, like the Tasaday Tribe (also reported in 1972 as extremely ancient/primitive heretofore undiscovered people) turned out to be a fraud.
Perhaps scaffolding, like Life, can often be an interesting play of image and reality.
