Just love visiting my elderly parents in New York and, going to my happy place…
Perhaps… just perhaps the last motorcycle ride of 2019…? (nope). 😁
I haven’t quite decided if I appreciate the Jay Pritzker Pavillion. The modern, asymmetrical, what-am-i-looking-at? design is, for me, as fascinating as it is frustrating. Yeah.. I tend to be one of those symmetry people. For more check out this link: https://www.archdaily.com/892320/the-jay-pritzker-pavilion-gehry-partners
It’s not as though the impossibly shiny, seamless stainless steel reflections of The Bean are flattering! But you can’t help be fascinated by them, and you can’t stop marveling at the crazy distortions of Chicago, and all the visitors drawn by the visual magnetism that is The Bean.
Here’s an idea… stick with me… let’s design and build, not one, but two giant LED glass block towers, and have them face each other. Then, let’s have water cascade down from the top of these towers. Then, let’s project a video of a giant face on the giant glass block towers. Then, let’s video the face changing, as if to expel water from it’s mouth, and at just the precise moment, we actually shoot a stream of water from the mouth of the giant LED face. Cool? Right? Thank you Jaume Plensa.
