Pricey Tag

File under "Smoothing Space between Peter's Design History Class and Visual Syntax Class"

Check out the graffiti-inspired gate by Herzog and de Meuron, the guys that almost brought us the Blanton Museum. It's like a vernacular version of the Gaudi organic facades we looked at this morning. Word is, they're hiring a security to guard the gates from geetting tagged. (Boo!)

Yeah, goddamn the university for not using their design for the new blanton. We almost had something really special.
