I guess we should credit both Binky with his precociousness and Mr. Ratburn for really whipping these Grade 3s into shape.

People think I can't write a poem.
But they are so wrong; I can write a poem.
I wrote this one, I wrote this poem,
And I gave it the title; "Binky's Poem".
So shut up!
The End.

wild that photography was invented but doesn’t really become photography until people agree that it isn’t painting. and that’s modernism

YA

honestly I agree

well no I’m just a classicist. it seems natural that a building should show it’s weight, like with the shape of the columns right? I like things I can understand.

well besides I don’t actually know the history. but the buildings being built in my city are unbelievably hideous. like just a tower of squares, almost like a negative presence. I don’t understand why we don’t use vertical lines to break things up.

a little rationality was ok, a lot was a huge problem, and a totality is total undoing

or no?

I don't think "rationality" is even the metric.

Is a shoe factory with windows "more rational"? Maybe, but that wasn't necessarily the point.

"Legibility" and "rationality" are almost antithetical, to the people that work anywhere.

Wittgenstein's sister, Hermine, wrote: "Even though I admired the house very much, I always knew that I neither wanted to, nor could, live in it myself. It seemed indeed to be much more a dwelling for the gods than for a small mortal like me, and at first I even had to overcome a faint inner opposition to this 'house embodied logic' as I called it, to this perfection and monumentality."

In one story, a metalworker queried whether one millimetre here or there would really make such a difference. “Yes!” the philosopher roared before the man had finished his sentence.

modernism is great but let’s be real the wittgenstein house is a conceptual sculpture on the subject of dwelling, not a real house

This National Canadian Gallery thing I saw (I don't know the official name so I just arbitrarily capitalize) had a thing about how Paul Klee lived in basically one of those exact geometric homes but he had bark, lichens, shells, etc. in the corners on display. That's how you do it.

My dad who as far as I know has basically never looked at art before was like "Wow, that art was good."

Klee and Gropius are my Bauhaus guys even though it didn't really work out. But it could have worked out.

I am of the firm belief that the vast majority of what has been done architecturally since let's say the mid 20th century has contributed greatly in making the world uglier.

Architecture as a purely aesthetical thing peaked between the 17th to mid 19th century. I'm no expert on the matter but i happen to have eyes.

Yes but why not just keep doing the same architectural style as before?

But more seriously, i'm mostly upset about the fact that so little of old architecture is preserved. Or not enough anyway. I have this hobby of collecting old montreal pictures (online) and then comparing the street it was taken on with what it looks like today (i've in fact pondered taking this hobby to HPN but i dont know if people who are not Mtlers would really care) and it is more often than not very depressing.... Now of course..yes....some of these old buildings probably burned down. And some probably got unsafe to live in because they hadn't been cared for properly and had to be torn down. But that can't be most considering there are still many buildings from the 19th and early 20th century (and some older than this too, in Montreal the oldest ones probably go back to the 16th century or at the very least 17th) around too which suggests that if you only care to keep the buildings standing, you can. And invariably of course it seems what's put in their place is ugly modern condos or other such monstrosities. It has to be mentioned it is a know fact that in Montreal starting in the 60's, mayoral administrations left it wide open to unscrupulous developers to just basically do almost as they pleased for many decades, tearing down beautiful old buildings to erect whatever architectural nightmares in their place and most of their projects were not even residential or if they were, they were not for the working class, in fact most of that unbridled development (i would say destruction) had for result to price people out of what were once nice residential neighborhoods.

So i don't know..i guess i have a somewhat personal stake in this sorta? I want the old to be preserved everywhere unless its is absolutely impossible to structurally. For heritage reasons and also because the new is just not ever nice to look at (or rarely anyway)

I am most definitely a conservative when it comes to architecture.

I also want everyone's life to be much worse for no reason unless I could make my own life slightly easier and it would happen to benefit other people.
