Telegrama, no tuit

En esta lucha entre arquitectos mediáticos y rectos sorprende siempre que sean los segundos los que se quejen de los primeros. Es por definición a los mediáticos a los que tendría que molestarles no tener repercusión, los modestos deberían conformarse con el trabajo bien hecho, con la satisfacción

The ambitions of AG SOB (Ghent Urban Development Corporation) go further than developing new urban districts and redrawing the existing urban fabric. Their Kavel project is an exercise in the precision implementation of small-scale housing following unconventional principles. The corporation seeks opportunities within the urban fabric to build new homes, either individually or in groups ranging from two or three to seven or eight. They do not manage everything themselves. Instead they offer the site to a young or otherwise suitable family, selected from a number of candidates, as a package complete with a selected architect, on highly advantageous terms. The deal is also bound by stringent conditions for financing and programme requirements: a high grade of sustainability is required on a practically impossible budget.

A pioneer of video art, since the mid-eighties, Rist’s film installations take many guises. She has likened them in the past to handbags, ‘because there is room in them for everything: painting, technology, language, music, flowing pictures, poetry, commotion, premonitions of death, sex and friendliness.’ From this versatile, capricious medium, Rist draws inner and outer worlds of kaleidoscopic colourful wonderment.
