Vodka tonic

  • Comment

Vodka is not a subject that has previously attracted architectural attention, though it has attracted the attention of architects, if you see what I mean.

That is now changed, since no less a figure than Frank Gehry has designed the latest bottle for Wyborowa, the Polish distiller owned by Pernod Ricard USA. Is there no limit to Gehry's skills? Perhaps there are, if a story in the Boston globe is to be believed. It reports on the final stages of work on Gehry's new building for MIT, a computer information and intelligent sciences centre. One professor is quoted as having already called in an interior architect to sort things out. 'People don't know how to live in this building, ' declares professor Harold Abelson, whose office as finished appeared to be a student lounge.
