Bakgård: October 2009              


The Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art (Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona, or MACBA) is situated in the Plaça dels Àngels. It was designed by Richard Meier & Partners and opened to the public on November 28th 1995.

Cool crowd enjoying the sun.

Milton Glaser

I like listening to Milton Glaser talk - to the extent that I would consider exchanging to the other side of the Atlantic for this reason alone. Its his way of understanding. Its his phonetics. Tone and speed. Unpretentious demeanor. It fascinates. Glimpse the videos below and you'll hear and see why. Would be great to have him at our school for a guest lecture. And Tuborgs.

Junya Ishigami

I like Junya Ishigami, and I don't know why. He looks charming. Long fair hair. Soberly dressed. Laid-back.

20 Japanese Architects

And read this. It's the best. I just bought an English translation of it too. Just because it looked amazing, and maybe because it featured some fine typography on the cover. Maybe its the cheap and thin paper which actually feels and looks nice. Captions are personal notes written as full sentences.
