Sdtrk: ‘Fuses’ by Stereolab

I must be in some sort of building rut. Perhaps long-dead architects are attempting to contact me from beyond the graaaave. You know, like the Ghost of Architectural Christmas Past That Was Designing Buildings For The Future or something.

Anyway! Do these photos look as creepy to you as they do to me?

It’s as if it’s 1982, and I’m flipping through an issue of OMNI, staring at those bizarre illustrations that graced the pages between the short works of science fiction.
I mean, I want to live in a high-rise apartment, but these are just slightly more colourful versions of the buildings in Terry Gilliam’s ‘Brazil’. There’s hardly any sky, it’s just walls.

Ace photography, but I mean, good lord. J.G Ballard characters would refuse to live in these structures
