Architecture, a pornographic attraction ?


‘The tendency of the Web is to spread agnosticism. Communicating so much visual information in a noncritical way, as many magazines do, makes architecture and design an almost pornographic attraction : the publishing of fantastic pictures that might only be fantastic in their visual aspect.

It’s good that magazines maintain critical analysis in the printed version.’

[ Alessandro Mendini ]

Frames : Guy Debord, The Society of the Spectacle, 1973
