? Ryugyong Hotel→ call for ideas
International consultation for ideas for the completion and functional redefinition of the building of the pyramid Ryugyong Hotel in Pyongyang, North Korea (2005)
The sky is dark, threatening storm, restless with his mutability dark
in flaming colors or cinerei.
Korea is a country in the dark.
Cultural isolation - political regime - not civil - distortion of reality.
Then mixing and crossbreeding.
Global culture - government markets - dialogue between peoples.
East and West! Time is limited. How much longer?
Miracle identity of the regime and the capital ... THE PYRAMID!
Monofunctionality as ideal spendimento economic, monolithic as a symbol of economic power (politics ...).
Where is culture, where is the dialogue, the encounter between different, free ... where is the architecture?
Dismantling and stratification
meanings from multiple, diverse content.
The pyramid - enormity - the material symbol of itself.
Ground ourselves the base, the affossiamo, immerse the concrete in the ground and create nature as the antithesis of artificial monumentality of power, we oppose seeking tensions dialogic, and higher up you start to separate, altering, mixing spaces, forms, functions, and volumes plans broken down, we free spaces creating urban spaces in proportion to the wind blowing and here goes, we produce color effects, lighten, we remove severity of the monolith to the playfulness of doing, we finish blending and spraying, spraying water into the clouds, into the sky Free ...
but still dark, dramatic, disturbing!
The unexpected happens ... project blud runner ... a future mass-dusty miscegenation but soulless, empty, abandonment ... returning hunters cyber that...!
The capital city, Pyongyang, is gray, no color, no life, the sky cenereo that covers from the past but it clears the bottom, from a distance, to the future.
The pyramid colored, decomposed bodies in layers-form-function,
It appears serene, provocative and entertaining, that looks ahead.
