U2 studio entries

Postby b.ray » Fri Oct 03, 2003 3:59 pm

can you guys print up t-shirts with the "winning" scheme and attend - it would be a great! They could have the words " got screwed " above the rendering and then the back could be large letters that say " U2? "

i like collaborating - that works too, and is much better with the insertion of local context/culture.....can we keep the back of the tee spare and questioning?

EL ARCHITINO has considered the idea of a witty comment on a t-shirt and has come to the conclusion that this is a vulgar approach to the situation.

EL ARCHITINO proposes an alternative and perhaps more subtle way of expressing the dismay of the architectural comunity to the DDDA. the entire area of dublin docklands should be carpet bombed repeatedly until it is a pile of dust. then we will acquire as many signatures from the public to put pressure on the DDDA to reveal the real winner (which is of course EL ARCHITINO).

EL ARCHITINO has amassed a formidable fleet of B52 bombers and eurofighter jets in case this situation ever arose.

T SHIRTS

Postby pepe » Fri Oct 03, 2003 5:09 pm

b ray

collaborate away


If paul has the images of the winner and posts them on the boards then people can download it and make their own iron on patch and make their own t shirt with their own slogan.
Or just add it on with marker pen

we could do keyrings aswell!

a couple of hundred people doing this would definitely make an impact at the opening night.

But i guess they are keeping that highsecurity and invited guests only as no doubt the band members will be there?????

Whens the grand opening?

On the thursday?

could make an interesting evening

el architino - vulgar, yes I agree. but it would be elevated to the heights of couture style beneath your white suede suit - please reconsider.

EL ARCHITINO

Thats funny
But what makes you think you can change your status to saying "the real u2 tower winner"

i think you should offer some proof or get to the back of the queue!

do not pass go and do not collect EURO 12,000

or your EURO 100 entry fee refund!

EL ARCHITINO=PAUL CLERKIN???

Postby pepe » Fri Oct 03, 2003 7:05 pm

Is Paul the infamous elarchitino.

If so

I really like your biro designs/cartoons

you should try and get a weekly strip in an architecture/design magazine

reason i suspect this is i have tried to change my "status" and have not been able to:
It seems you need an administrator to do this.

And i dont believe that he is "the real u2 tower winner"

but he does not accept emails
or personal messages

and he only joined the forum in September!

Nope.... i'm not elarchitino, I don't have the time... and since I discovered computers, I've lost the ability to draw freehand.. elarchitino is a very welcome breath of fresh air...

i'll post how to change your status

Just added some more entries this morning to the online gallery.


I believe that The Sunday Times is publishing another piece tomorrow on the competition and the design which we think was the entry that the DDDA was trying to determine the authorship of.

No idea, but if it was described as "experimental" they probably didn't want it exhibited... or it was worse than 101 entries....

edit - hadn't read the list when i posted this....

Some really dire entries in there too.....some lost architects out there as well.
Some presentations are really horrible with overly dramatic skies with acidic sunsets or stormy clouds, sail boats, seagulls and all sorts trying to add to or camouflage the basically shite designs.

I'm getting used to looking at the winning entry.....however I wish that they remodel the roof and cap the building off more strikingly.
I think it does n't look good at the mo.
