.

We want architecture to have more. Architecture that bleeds, that exhausts, that whirls and even breaks. Architecture that lights up, that stings, that rips, and under stress tears. Architecture should be cavernous, firey, smooth, hard, angular, brutal, round, delicate, colorful, obscene, voluptuous, dreamy, alluring, repelling, wet, dry and throbbing. Alive or dead. Cold – then cold as a block of ice. Hot – then hot as a blazing wing. Architecture must blaze.
Excerpt from ‘Architecture Must Blaze’ (1980)
Coop Himmelblau; Architecture Is Now.
.
A short experimental docu-voodle by bk featuring OMA's tvcc/cctv burnout captured in Beijing, China - 2009.05.08, almost three months after the blaze took place. It's a necessity for Architecture to blaze, but it's a poignance to see it burned out. Soundtrack overlay 'apocolypse outro' by Neurowaxx (ccmixter.org).
