To be not archicool


An ordinary solution

To be not archicool


An ordinary solution
Unresolved problem. How much time before people stop marginalizing the non-originals?

I know. It's also common in other disciplines. We are always looking for something new. Something that can surprise or exalt. You know that feeling when you look at a painting like The Hunters in the Snow? The chest swells. Feel the jaw slowly unstuck from the rest of the face. The optical field expands. Today it's impossible to be "new". The social networks and those devilry things called "apps", so indispensable for our social lives, had made milions of writers, photographers, directors, painters and architects. So here's the idea: free yourself from the obsession of the new and original. Return to the intimate and banal. An architect invites artists of different disciplines for a brunch in his studio or at home. There is wine, food, music. There are exchanges of opinions on topics suggested by a host. For each brunch you can expect differents architest, houses or studios. Differents topics, guests and hosts. If you cannot be present on these events watch them live on YouTube.



The architect's banquet. Invitation to speak intimately about banality, architecture, banality, life, banality, art…
Appointment on YouTube for all those who can not be present, physically.
