🔥 Architektur muss brennen! 🔥 🔥 Architecture must blaze! 🔥 #flame #flamewing #architecture #architecturemustburn #quotesoftheday #wolfdprix #chbl #architecturemustblaze #blaze #blazingwings You can judge how bad the seventies were by looking at its uptight architecture. A democracy of opinion polls and complacency thrives behind Biedermeier façades. We have no desire to build Biedermeier. Not now or no other time. We are tired of seeing Palladio and other historical masks. Because with architecture, we don’t want to exclude everything that is disquieting. We want architecture that has more. Architecture that bleeds, that exhausts, that whirls, and even breaks. Architecture that lights up, stings, rips, and tears under stress. Architecture has to be cavernous, fiery, smooth, hard, angular, brutal, round, delicate, colorful, obscene, lustful, dreamy, attracting, repelling, wet, dry, and throbbing. Alive or dead. If cold, then cold as a block of ice. If hot, then hot as a blazing wing. Architecture must blaze. (c) Coop Himmelb(l)au 1980

TOMORROW: Lecture with #wolfdprix : „ #Architecture isn't frozen music - Music is the driving force behind" | 6 p.m. | @musicbiennalezagreb Music - regardless of its form - has always been a crucial source of inspiration for our projects. Whether it’s the openly tuned guitar of #keithrichards from the #rollingstones , #Mozart ’s dissonant symphony segments, the musical offering of #johannsebastianbach and “Excuse me, while I kiss the sky“ by #JimiHendrix or a string quartet by #AlbanBerg.
