Bartlett’s Familiar Quotations

Giraffes? Giraffes! Have you ever looked in a mirror and wondered why you look thin or large or blue or red?

Libeskind’s Imperial War Museum The design is based on shattered globe, symbolizing the shattering effect of war on the history of the world. Why does this seem so familiar? oh right…the Jewish Museum in Berlin, which i believe was based on a shattered Star of David, symbolizing the shattering effect of war. *cough*onetrickpony*cough* Also, it was the only museum I’ve ever been to where there were regular signs reading “Here, the architects wants you to consider ______,” or “Here, the architect’s intention was ______.” Now is that really necessary?
