    Hey, ElKitch and j-pax : ... and what about the ugly new plastic outbuilding of the Stedelijk Museum ?   Even worldwide negative reactions for this horrible part !

    Yes, not very nice either although I dont find it very disturbing. In an article was written that the ideas to build it originate from the 90's: the time when it didnt really matter what you built, as long as it was big and expensive.

    this MUST be a sarcastic article .... a contemporary museum has to build into the future not the past  ....  i like timeless! So i am glad  the rijks museum is bigger better and more expensive !!!

    i deleted very much text.... i am passionately  against "the ugly arts" !!!

    It was about the Stedelijk Museum. The rijksmuseum has been done "in style" with the way it was. For the Stedelijk they wanted something modern (although the building it self was very classic) and this is the result:

    Of that they said it was typically the 90's: just build something that cant be missed and is really expensive -then it must be good! Also ashame that the whole project -ofcourse- costed many millions more than planned in the first placed*. A comparison was made with a bankers building built in the 90's. It also was pompous and huge. Showing the great wealth of the bank. In these days it seems out of touch since bankers should be a bit more humble with all their moneywasting and living of the taxpayers money that saved them.

     Admittingly, when you are under the big white tub it doesnt look so bad and when you are in it you dont notice it. But it still seems a bit obnoxious...

    * If I was an Urban planner I would multiply every plan I made by 1.5 That would approximate the real costs better.

    i cannot say it is disgusting.... some art realy disgusts me ... and it probably is what the maker intended....

    a association with the work above.... it makes me tink about yuppies in the eighties.... this should fit in a interieur of that time.... i think it was cool that you pay much money for some thing easy to make... like the yuppies made easy money themself....  i think of the movie "wallstreet"

    It is neat. Can you imagine playing with it in a motorhome while riding down the highway?

    I suppose some might call this chess set art. The pricetag is over £5million.

    i could not find real pictures on google... i think the drawings/story of the jewel royale chess set is  promotion of the thriller/book metioned in the article

    Maybe they won't make any until they get a down payment and no one has offered?
