September 25: The Taste
2016/09/25 § Leave a comment
On this day in 2009 the Matters of Taste blog was unleashed to a desperately waiting and needy world.
Ever since–well, except for the recent hiatus–MoT’s apparently extensive, virtually worldwide, and expertly comprehensive staff has peered into the most pressing matters of architectural practice, education and design, critiqued buildings, museums and exhibits, sneered at Barbiexplotation, celebrated fine films and good dogs, prepared lavish meals for dead architects, fawned over nineteenth-century designers, and basically kept an eye out for people, events and activities that fulfill the essential standards of the social contract known as taste, and skewered those that fail. Vive la Taste.
It’s also Francesco Borrimini’s birthday (no coincidence), so there’s that, too.
