    isaie BLOCH: How boring has perfection become?

    Evidence of this lies in the fact that our contemporary design obsessions are based on an appreciation for the perversity of mutant form, a taste learned from the movies and set to work on architecture.

    By subverting the logic of perfection and beauty, non-perfect images coming from controlled methodologies are generated. What used to be about mastering the result of a non-perfect process is now about the production of monstrosity and the grotesque throughout accurate mechanisms.

    Key elements coming from Romanticism such as: ruinification, untamed wilderness, the unfinished and the validation of obscure perceptions are used as modus operandi. Intruding botanical gardens functioning as structure, dens calcified structures organizing circulation, decaying metal formations forming apertures and growing organic tissue transforming the internal morpholgy are all contributing to the architectural qualities of the design.

      the project description reads as tho it is a studio brief and might benefit from a more personal introspective, one that challenges rather than emulates the objectives of presumably, the instructor(s) who directed this work [not to name names]. The question of how boring perfection has become is likewise ludicrous… who has been made aware of the increasing severity of perfection in this world? least of all who can name a single act of perfection?

      the technique seems erratic rather than accurate, but nonetheless the imagery is compelling. way to go. beautiful work… so why hang it on another architect’s hook?
