designed without plans obeying
only space, poetry
The romance, the magic, as it where, of the randomness of the thoughts and concepts expressed wonderfully is a single string of words is breath taking in a way.
Today’s haiku is adapted from the article, Folly or art? Catalonian town to buy labyrinthine Espai Corberó for €3m.
The article is about the house of Xavier Espai Corberó near Barcelona has a series of 12 patios linked by 300 arches and more.
Like a three-dimensional De Chirico painting or an Escher staircase to nowhere, the labyrinthine Espai Corberó near Barcelona defies architectural logic, being designed “without plans, obeying only space and poetry”.
Asked by a visitor what the point of it all was, Corberó replied: “I carry on making. It’s enough to imagine something and feel the need to make it visible. That’s how art should be, or something very like that.”
I love that.
I carry on making.
It’s enough to imagine something and feel the need to make it visible.
That’s how art should be, or something very like that.
Mr. Corberó then said, “This staircase goes somewhere and it does a good job of going there,” he added. “Who cares where it goes?”
Somehow some way this really made my day.
This staircase goes somewhere and it does a good job of going there.
Who cares where it goes?
That is good enough.
That is good enough for any day.
Go forward today.
Design without plans.
Obey only space and poetry.
