A peculiar discussion.

"This is an architecture that travels light, comfortable with the contradictions of present-day reality and free of avant-garde aspirations"

You know you’re in New Zealand when there’s a random cow just sitting in plain view. Then, Papa Cow comes along and stares at you like you’re the peculiar beast walking down the track. At this point I think it was a good idea to turn around.  You know you’re in New Zealand when there’s a random cow just sitting in plain view.

oh my days. i got a guess within a hundred miles for some place in sweden. *boast*
You’re supposed to be job hunting, yo!
Even better, I actually got a place that I know in Putra Jaya, Malaysia. I think I’ve been playing quite a bit too much, that it has come to this.

"

Due to its bland ubiquity, a Calatrava piece is no more distinctive than a chain store situating itself on a city’s shore. It’s a structural franchise—a kind of architectural Best Buy, one that’s catastrophically expensive, doesn’t allow returns, and has no real warranty.

Instead of coming up with something relevant to the place, telling a story about what came before or revealing previously overlooked visual details within a city, these structures don’t connect with any local authenticity or individuality in these cities. They’re not architecture at all, in a sense; they’re more like huge pieces of urban jewelry draped over a city’s chest, like some crazed husband throwing Bulgari at his wife, hoping it will finally make her love him.

"Even though it’s not clear what that community may be, even though we can non longer live according to traditions or the old ways of collective thinking, a new kind of community and city is possible through free exchange and dialogue. I’m glad to say that there is a growing number of architects willing to take on the ambiguity and uncertainty of our present situation."

Massey Memorial.
I’d never visited this place before. It’s just tucked in a random clearing in the Miramar Peninsula. There’s a small square informing the memorial’s location from the main road, and a lengthy walk through brush. It opens up into a huge marble monument. Random.  Massey Memorial.

The sun has really risen at this point in time, and I no longer have to worry about shutter speeds so much!

These old buildings are actually storage warehouses for a film prop supplier that mainly caters to Weta Workshops and similar ilk. It’s kind of tucked away on a deserted street in Shelley Bay.
