Quote of the Day

"The suburbs have three destinies, none of them exclusive: as materials salvage, as slums, and as ruins." James Kunstler 

for some reason this quote blows me away.  i just thought that it fit well with my last painting. 

kunstler also the guy that said that the "cutting edge of architecture  is a razor blade poised against our own society's throat." talk about a way with words. i dont know if i agree, but i do like the thought of a freshly sharpened blade against the pulsating jugular of our disposable society... i just dont think architecture would have the guts to follow through. sorry kunstler.
