Hugged to death

Modern Berlin is the latest map from Blue Crow Media. The spike of interest in architecture-related travel continues unabated with Phaidon’s Mid-Century Modern Architecture Travel Guide: West Coast USA. Modern architecture has always had this problem of being reduced to a thing, a pin on a map or a perfect snapshot. Perhaps we need a prosaic revival / instead, we have the curious cultural misappropriation that is ‘hygge‘, a mix of optimism, nostalgia and largely bogus presumptions (via MeFi) / nostalgia: Peckham’s Crown Theatre, long lost / the evolution of Microsoft Flight Simulator.
