greaseproof architecture since 2000


I don’t know what to make of this, it’s from a recent review in The Age of the Meyer(s) Place bar, designed yonks ago by 6 degrees.

“Like so many buzzwords, “architect designed” is more often than not pointless and probably my least favourite – after “wine bar”, obviously.

Simply because, well, what does it mean?

Caroline Springs’ McMansions are “architect designed” – great, so was much of the Crown Casino district and the public toilets on the Port Melbourne foreshore.

So what? Most buildings are architect designed!

Not that I’m dissing architects or anything, y’ hear, just making a plea for slightly less daft PR-speak because the architect-designed concept has been hijacked by the world’s worst buildings.”

Whatever is meant by that heap of confusion, it’s a good argument against paying columnists by the word.
