Charles Gwathmey is a scary, scary man…

If i have to wait until I’m this old to be a rockstar architect, there’ll be hell to pay.

Here, the corpse-like Charles Gwathmey, of Gwathmey Siegel & Associates, stands stoically atop his new vomit-inducing “Sculpture for Living” in Astor Place. New York Magazine uses the under-construction building to speculate on the future of “condo-couture,” in an article that reveals which architect “favors tweed blazers with elbow patches and ties with prints of crickets and rhinos, often the work of his good friend Ralph Lauren…”

Oh, and “sculpture” apparently now means “out-of-scale, boring, repeating slabs with curved edges.”

Condo-Couture…I’m can’t decide if I love that phrase or hate it.

umm….Love it.

update: is this photoshopped? no hard hat? different lighting conditions?

GWATHMEY, YOU SNEAKY BASTARD!

For Lease: 400 sq ft. Martian studio



It would appear that those crazy kids at MIT have been caught up in the “Mars or Bust” tidal wave that swept through the country ealier this year. The Mars Homestead Project has been formed with the goal of designing the most efficient dwelling unit capable of sustaining life on Mars. What will these houses be made of, you ask? Glass and Steel geodesic forms? New space-age alloys and polymers? Sadly, no. The Martian home of the future will be made of…..brick.
