Self Indulgent Artists

If you are not indulging your self
you are not working hard

Your aim
is too low.

commmunity values

I like this, this Austin William’s critique of the “New New Urbanism” in the TLS.

A critique of the patronising, paternalsitic assumption that “community values could be built into the very fabric of architecture”, so as to create citizens.

“practically all architecture now attempts to force social solidarity into existence and, by definition, condemns those who do not conform”.

This feels familiar.
