While cruising the blogosphere during lunch, I found this – which just makes me once again wish I was in New York. If anyone sees this, i’d really love to hear about it. ( I’m talking to you Mark, Dan, and Ari!)
The Freedom Tower? The West Side Stadium? New York architecture needs a swift kick in the ass.
This February, Les Freres Corbusier finally puts the punk rock back into urban planning: Amidst a blaze of streaming media, ridiculous choreography, and dozens of live fornicating rabbits, a desperate battle is waged over the creation of New York’s bridges, highways, and public housing.
Boozy: The Life, Death, and Subsequent Vilification of Le Corbusier and, More Importantly, Robert Moses tracks the life of Robert Moses, from idealistic youth to unstoppable power broker, able to turn parched land into glorious bridges, highways, and public housing with a mere flick of the wrist. With guest appearances by Benito Mussolini, Joseph Goebbels, and the ghost of Baron von Haussmann, Moses learns from the greats until true power is finally his.
Freemasons dance, FDR levitates, and Daniel Libeskind silently weeps. None shall be spared.
Performance times and details can be found on the website: Les Freres Corbusier
