    Kind of a stretch, but fun.

    Thanks for sharing such a detailed piece of information having 30 different
    artworks by architects. Architecture is an artful science as well. In my
    opinion, the best architects are those who managed to combine both things.

    Thanks for the link, thatís a great idea for an art project. The Dali house I should think is based on his 1937 painting Le Sommeil (Sleep), one of my favourites of his.

    a spammer [hopefully soon removed] has awoken this thread

    my thoughts remain the same as before - it is neither hommage, nor critique... it is just riding on the coat tails of those who could....

    what can I say ?
    it is better to say nothing and appear a fool, than to open your mouth and confirm it is so
    and a donkey is always best left to bray alone...

    Wow what an awful viewpoint. We had no idea what your thoughts were before because you didn't post them - probably a good thing.

    We are all "riding on the tails" of others and I am astounded that you don't see the fun in my link.

    Hope your day gets better handrawn.

    probably... though the representation looks more like a bird skull; I would have been more impressed if something a little challenging had been attempted...

    @ Paul

    we are all standing on the shoulders of the giants that went before us Paul, so I think maybe you misunderstand what I mean by riding on coat tails

    your question was 'How wonderful are these?' to me they are not wonderful; I am just not impressed with the generic interpretations

    you canna please everyone

    and there is nothing wrong with my day, all things considered - I hope all is well with yours
