Frank Lloyd Wright

…si spunea:

A free America… means just this: individual freedom for all, rich or poor, or else this system of government we call democracy is only an expedient to enslave man to the machine and make him like it.

Daca am mentionat recenta restaurare a vilei lui Jung, cum sa nu-l mentionez si Wright, arhitectul american de la reconstructia caruia am sarbatorit anul trecut 50 de ani.

Tuned City [Tallinn]

Cu foarte putin timp in urma eram intr-un vechi apartament aflat intr-o cladire din Tallinn. In timp ce stateam si povesteam cu cineva, s-a auzit un zgomot foarte interesant, cam ca sunetele pe care le scoate vulpea. Mi-am intrebat imediat interlocutorul: vecinii? Nu, spune el. Casa.

During the month of May 2010, and over the summer of 2011, Tuned City Tallinn will undertake an acoustic exploration of Tallinn. The goal will be to identify and explore the sonic landmarks of the city which define its identity, shape its communication and transform the perceptions of its visitors and inhabitants. A fascinating cross-section of international artists, performers, scientists and thinkers will be brought together to present their ideas about sound and space. In addition, the public will be invited to participate directly through a series of workshops and sound walks and experience diverse site specific installations, performances and demonstrations.
