Jørn Utzon

Australia's signature building creator and Denmark's most inspired architect Jørn Utzon passed away today at the age of 90 years old.

In 2003 the jury of the Pritzker Prize (architecture's highest honor) declared, in reference to the Sydney Opera House, "The marvelous and seemingly impossible in architecture can be achieved." Sadly Utzon never returned to Australia after he was forced to quit the project. In recent years the Opera House Trust made amends with him.

Panettone

I have previously stated that the Pantone kitsch has gone too far, plus I don't like panettone (but I'm craving for a good Stöllen like the one my grannie used to bake every Christmas). That being said, I'm diggin' this idea anyway.

AN AGENT OF CHANGE

Monday, November 10, 2008

«Throughout history, design has been an agent of change. It helps us to understand the changes in the world around us, and to turn them to our advantage by translating them into things that can make our lives better. Now, at a time of crisis and unprecedented change in every area of our lives – economic, political, environmental, societal and in science and technology – design is more valuable than ever..»

["A través de la historia, el diseño ha sido un agente de cambio. Nos ayuda a entender los cambios en el mundo que nos rodea, y a volverlos a nuestro favor traduciendolos en cosas que pueden hacer nuestras vidas mejores. Ahora, en una época de crisis y de cambio sin precedente en cada área de nuestras vidas - económica, politica, ambiental, social y en la ciencia y tecnología - el diseño es más valioso que nunca..."]

In case anyone is interested, I've been collecting images of deers in my ffffound for quite a long time, the reason why eluded me completely until today that I realized that Bambi was the first Disney movie I saw at a theater when I was kid. Weird, isn't it?
