Who Needs The Nobel Prize In Literature When China Can Get Its Equivalent In ARCHITECTURE?
Kick-ass Wang Shu won the best fucking award ever yesterday, picked by a bunch of nearly-as-awesome dudes for building kick-ass shit and being generally kick-ass-ish. Step aside, Frank Gehry. Step aside, Tadao Ando. Step aside, Renzo Piano, if that is your real name. And what the heck does Eduardo Souto de Moura even mean? The kick-ass club limits its member names to two words or fewer. Sorry, Ed. Chairman Wang now has the dais.
“Step aside, Pei. I M Awesome is your new overlord.”
