"The Architect"…en pænt irriterende film!

“It’s our responsibility as Architects, to inspire our fellow man – to show them that we are cabeble of greatness and nothing less”

……..det her er by-fare den dÃ¥rligste film om en arkitekt jeg nogen sinde har set!!  Man sparker næsten ud efter filmens hovedperson, den unge arkitekt, der kun vil tegne, hvad han selv mener, er “Masterpieces that will capture the mind”.

Ikke nok med at de har stået op hver dag for at lave en film på 16 minutter ud fra et grinagtigt manuskrift, så har de også lavet en endnu længere film på 20 minutter om hvordan de så lavede den, haha!

…eeeller mÃ¥ske det er filmen der har ramt et ømt punkt i mig….hmmm!?

"The Architect, the Cook and Good Taste" (pdf)

Knowledge and sensitivity are needed if quality is to be insisted upon. We live in a highly specialised world. It calls for joinedup thinking and intellectual exchange between different disciplines to arrive at new viewpoints.

“Since time immemorial, cooking and building have been among humanity’s most basic occupations. Both of them are rooted in necessity, but both of them also possess a cultural as well as a sensory, aesthetic dimension. And while it is true that cooking is a transitory art form, it gives expression to the periods of human cultural history just as architecture does. Moreover, both arts accord a central role to the materials employed. Both involve measuring and proportioning, shaping and designing, assembling and composing.
This book pursues the astonishing parallels and deeply rooted connections between the art of building and that of cooking. A variety of essays takes up questions of materiality and proportioning. Attention will also be given to food cultivation and architecture, to the places where meals are prepared as well as a range of different culinary spaces.”
