3 STARCHITECTS, 3 MUSEUMS

i always thought great architecture can make a city and the example of the visionary mayor of barcelona who allowed gaudi to do his thing proves my point: who can tell barcelona and gaudi apart? i told you before that i buy airplane tickets for architecture and here you have a few breathtaking, totally travel...
A LAD IN NAGOYA

A LAD IN NAGOYA

the japanese don’t bother with the whole new-architecture-ruins-the-old-architecture thing. actually, as they have a culture of continuous renewal, not many of the temples or traditional buildings you see are their original selves: most have been re-built many times over, not in the lest perhaps due to the frequent earthquakes. also, the country is full of...
TESHIMA ART MUSEUM - THE WONDER

TESHIMA ART MUSEUM – THE WONDER

i made it to the island by ferry, as i was saying i`d try. a tiny bus took us on a narrow winding road along the coast. after one turn, i could see it in the valley, just like i’d first seen it on the internet. opened in september 2010, the teshima art museum is not...

URBAN ITALY

URBAN ITALY

whoever tried to research italy before going there found out the hard way that italians think there’s no need for any organization or information for tourists: they rely almost entirely on what the past centuries provided. which makes any trip to italy (at least for me) an endless series of misunderstandings, miscommunications and pure anger. but i...
