before printing, think about the environment

exhibition

Re:Application was exhib­ited at post – office, Rot­ter­dam.
The emails con­tributed to mul­ti­tude have been printed in A0 and pre­sented in pairs. They were peri­od­i­cally updated.

Emails are the most com­mon com­mu­ni­ca­tion tool in Archi­tec­ture prac­tice today, and the words used in such con­ver­sa­tions are cru­cial to inter­pret dynam­ics of social impor­tance. Up-scaling them to a pre­pos­ter­ous for­mat is a sar­cas­tic take on an oth­er­wise dra­matic reality.

    Rejec­tion emails are not as com­mon com­mu­ni­ca­tion tool as hyper ‘real’ ren­ders of some ‘ideal’ condition.On the con­trary its a the most com­mon secret of archi­tects that it is about time to start deal with some sar­casm pub­licly . Only then can archi­tects start grow some col­lec­tive self respect about our cur­rent con­di­tion. We take our­selves too seriously…

      Def­i­nitely! we take our­selves too seri­ously and also we always dra­ma­tize the dif­fi­cult con­di­tion con­cern­ing work that our gen­er­a­tion is facing.

      In addit­tion, do we have another way/tool, other than sar­casm, in order to deal with the unre­spect­ful cyn­i­cism of cer­tain rejec­tion emails?!

I think you misspelled the word "infact" on your website. If you want to keep errors off of your site we've successfully used a tool like SpellPros.com in the past for our websites. A nice customer pointed out our mistakes so I'm just paying it forward :).

@Conrad having worked in one of those offices that you mention, I have found your post as much provocative as naive and simplistic. I should make an entire post to explain why... will leave that for later. Thanks, anyway, to keep the discussion alive
