Comment on: Florian Beigel dies, aged 76
I feel really embarrassed to be the quoted above, and I hope that people will understand that as an ex-columnist of the AJ they tend to contact me first. Claudia and I were really shocked and moved and sad to hear this news. I think that it’s not an exaggeration to say that Florian possessed a form of joyful, pleasurable genius. We were priveledged to see it in action.
I agree with Hank.
3rd rate - sorry.
Aha, so finally we get to see what Parametricism with some Er... parameters looks like, albeit without parameters such as solar shading, decorum, etc. Human ecology is obviously not very high on the agenda here. Nothing wrong with tall buildings, but the ground plane is where all the effort is necesssry, not sticking silly bits of stylings on the facades. Yes, we now know exactly what non-parameter architecture looks like, like 3rd American architects ripping off Zaha... oh.
