Super G

inside out

Adulthood is often disappointing. Like many children of my generation my early understanding of inspired architecture was shaped by Dr Seuss. It was reinforced by the eponymous uncle’s property in Mon Oncle, it was fed by the art of Escher and The Pink Panther cartoons. Finally the ideas were solidified by the comics of Jean Henri Gaston Giraud. Our cities are so predictable with their right angled corners. Everything strives to be practical and there are too few surprises. We want jetpacks, we want flying cars, we want staircases that bend into nothingness. We know that Tim’s picture is a clever double exposure, but surely we all want it to be a gravity defying reality.
