Re: Re: ILAC centre
Is it too early to regard these objects as somewhat ‘nostalgic’? If they survived another 10 years, would they pass into the status that the ‘Why go Bald?’ sign off South Great Georges St has?
I would like to regard these and similar objects around the city as a kind of ‘haute couture’ of architecture. Representitive of the of ideas that were being circulated at the time. They are not quite sculpture, in that they were designed to ‘decorate’ the building in mind – but have they now passed into the realm of a kind of public sculpture – in terms of our familiarity with them. Do they deserve a consideration apart from the Ilac Centre as a building?
