살다보면 그런 관계가 의외로 많아.
쉽게 친해졌다가 쉽게 멀어지고
진심을 나누었다고 생각해도 그때 뿐이고
결국 아무것도 아니었던 그런 사이.
그래서 갈수록 타인에 대한 기대감은
뭐 그런 관계도 그거대로 좋은거야.
함께 했던 시간
그냥 그거 그대로.
그런 관계가 슬프고 허무할 때도 있지만
나중에는 아무렇지도 않아.
때가 되면 더 이상 외롭거나
쓸쓸하게 느껴지지 않거든.
The dense thatch, which would traditionally have been used to cover the roof in combination with walls of stone and clay, is here applied to every surface of the exterior. This durable, weatherproof coat has been sculpted into a graphic interpretation of an archetypal house, punctuated in places by glass and white plaster elements. By combining craft methods with contemporary forms, it becomes possible to create striking architecture that still respects our cultural heritage and provides work to those who maintain skills that have been passed down through generations.
I wish the story was written as a book - rather than showing everything explicitly, imagining in one’s head would be much prettier. The film contains a lot more than just a story of a nymphomaniac, and I enjoyed the way von Trier composed scenes. Not sure whether I will watch the second part.
Meiso no Mori Crematorium, Toyo Ito
Toyo Ito has sought to dematerialize all sense of formal structure by “floating” over the landscape a vast undulating shell in which to shelter the ceremonial functions of the crematorium. And though the roof appears free in form it was realized through rigorous structural analysis.
The method uses an algorithm which, Sasaki says, “involves generating rational structural shapes within a computer by using principles of evolution and self-organisation of living structures from an engineering standpoint.” Ito likens this structural analysis to the growth pattern of plants in which, as in nature, a process of great complexity, comprising several hundred evolutionary cycles, produces the final result.
What all that means in layman’s terms is that the architect comes up with the shape, Sasaki number crunches it, tests it through computer modeling and comes up with a better, more beautiful, more elegant, more economic form, and tells the architect how to make it.
The world still has a taste and sanity, thank god. If she received more positive comments, I would have lost faith in this world.
