Architecture, Program, Scale, UnDuck, Venturi, Learning from Las Vegas
Program and scale are destabilized. Site is emptied of meaning. The ultimate way in which these outrageous forms mean something is through their iconography. The surprising legibility of the frat house in the shape of a snowflake crystal, the enormous familiarity of an office tower in the form of an earbud, how at home we feel in front of a bungalow sculpted like a bacterium, etc., and then it will make sense why on yelp.com the Long Island Duckling has a 4.5 star review.
