The building: "City of Sex" sex museum... A formal gesture that rivals many of the greatest mockitecture projects of the past. This is not only awesome because it looks like buildings having sexual relations, but it also encroaches on the street. That is quality mockitecture. The building itself is not the best. Not the worst building ever, but not the best. I give it a thumbs up however because it is suggestive. Like, architecturally. And It makes me laugh. Can't architecture just make me laugh now and then? It is untapped potential in architecture to make me laugh.
The Second building came from Le Dauphin, and it looks like an ipod. not much else there, just looks like an ipod. yeah. it looks like an ipod. It raises questions about iconographic monumentality and monumental iconography. While this is not the intention of the architects I assume, it makes a monument to our times and our culture, which is important. And the ipod is quickly becoming (or quickly became) the symbol to our times.
