The Tackiest Architecture in the Entire World

The Tackiest Architecture in the Entire World

.....

Vasily Klyukin is a Russian-born Tony Stark, a billionaire banker and real-estate mogul turned science-fiction novelist turned self-styled starchitect. He lives in Monaco. (Of course he lives in Monaco.) He has never built anything, barring his own personal empire.

- One thing that Klyukin’s designs reveal that will resonate in New York and London—and perhaps in President Xi’s China—is the billionaire’s contempt for locality. These proposals don’t make room for regionalism or context because they are utterly unconcerned with it. If Klyukin espouses any robust design philosophy, it’s globalism, a High International Kitsch. --- esigns like Klyukin’s point to the toll that weird design has taken on the public’s conception of what architecture means. His work is the opposite of design by someone like Annabelle Selldorf, a subtle and context-driven architect. His work is spectacle, outrageous, tacky.

I could see the Snake building working in Vegas, and the last one with the circlular ring halfway up is interesting and would look ok in certain cities. But generally these are very wacky ideas, that fortunately have no realistic chance of ever being built.

That weird letter A thing he had in Miami isn't that much worse than the giant hair pin that is going in the same spot.

And the other Miami design where he has some kind of black panther thing is actually owned by a Russian developer.
