I cannot believe my eyes. Florian Beigel + ARU's scheme in Paju Book City, South Korea (AJ 14.06.07), bears an uncanny resemblance to any of the unbelievably dull system-built blocks which can still be found around some of the less attractive parts of 1960s university campuses, now looking more and more drab, stained and uninspiring with the passage of time. Here we go again, deluding ourselves with the usual verbal eyewash with inevitable references to Bach fugues and Walter Segal.
