  • Paul Virilio (wiki) (French: [viʁiljo]; 4 January 1932 – 10 September 2018)[3] was a French cultural theorist, urbanist, and aesthetic philosopher. He is best known for his writings about technology as it has developed in relation to speed and power, with diverse references to architecture, the arts, the city and the military.
    According to two geographers, Virilio was a “historian of warfare, technology and photography, a philosopher of architecture, military strategy and cinema, and a politically engaged provocative commentator on history, terrorism, mass media and human-machine relations

    But during a 2013 dive in Cape Verde, it wasn’t a fish that alarmed her–but a plastic bag. This led Hansch (who was studying architecture in Aachen, Germany) to come up with an idea for her university thesis project–a concept that could ultimately solve what many regard as one of our planet’s biggest environmental problems: plastic pollution.

    “My early work nearly ruined my career,” Vito told Harris by email, “and also nearly killed me,” he told later him in person. “What does a body artist do as a body grows old? It seemed necessary to find a new direction.”
    In the mid-1970s, Acconci stopped doing performances, and turned to architecture, to which he’s been committed ever since.

    Observer Obit

    In her own words.

    on march 31, 2016, world renowned architect zaha hadid passed away at the age of 65. born in baghdad in 1950, she studied mathematics before enrolling at london’s architectural association in 1972. by 1979 she had established zaha hadid architects, and quickly rose to global prominence. working with office partner patrik schumacher, the studio utilized a host of innovative technologies that often resulted in unexpected and dynamic architectural forms.

    Guardian Obit

    Zaha was an outsider and upfront about the unfair treatment she experienced as a woman, a foreigner and a designer of expensive, weird-looking buildings – a triple whammy. She did not fit the stereotypical white male profession of registered architects. Jealousy and prejudice failed to bar her way, but it took its toll.
