Whenever I run out of new reasons to annoy you inspiring blog ideas. I regroup and fall back to my true calling hot-tub installation Faux Japanese poetry. It’s also a good way for me to talk about Architecture without really talking about Architecture, which is kind of what I do here, apparently…
So? How about a 3rd installment of Architecturally inspired Haikus? Right, I’ll wait for the cheers to subside, & then get started. (plus, you can check out part 1 or part 2 if you’re a crazy person an overachiever).
Ok, here’s today’s entries:
Modena Cemetery – Modena Italy – Aldo Rossi (from maurizio.mwg’s FLICKR photostream)
lives that ended without sounds
made for housing time
Boa Nova Tea House – Alvar Siza (from maurizio.mwg’s FLICKR photostream)
rocks wouldn’t notice
Centre Pompidou – Paris – by Piano and Rogers (from maurizio.mwg’s FLICKR photostream)
a framed and bannered
steel and grid and glass and staired
path for engineers
So, want to give it a try? Of course you don’t do. Just look at the picture below, FEEL the picture, drink in the wine architecture, & write 3 lines. it’s a 5-7-5 pattern (first line – 5 syllables, 2nd line – 7 syllables, 3rd line – 5 syllables) or you can go with a 3-5-3 pattern for extra credit.
So…. Add yours in the comment section below (for public mocking) Or, you can email it to me (if you prefer private mocking)
here’s your building:
Kimball Art Museum, Fort Worth TX – Louis Kahn (from ApplePirate’s FLICKR photostream)
