DESIGN IS A CRIME

Billie Jean

ELUSIVE 

The day will come when you will understand the value of Peter Pan within, the crazy fool within, and

then on that day, fear and worries will be replaced by laughter and joy, and the emptiness of your

fearful anxiety will be replaced by the joy of life.

Tranquility is the creative thinking without sorrow pain guilt and it that state we can understand each

other.

 

At the point this occurs, play, amusements, fun and pleasure and being rich will not be a crime, but will

 

become a grace. That is why I now call Design a Crime, when it will become at one point, a Blessing.

 

That is when Art and Design no longer belongs to a small group of privileged people, but It belongs to

 

us.

 

This is the democratization of art. To have the right to choose and able to reach likes in life.

 

BEFORE ME

If we remember people who combine the word design and crime, we see Hal Foster and Adolf Loose.

Hal Foster, an art critic who has won Guggenheim Fellowship (1998), in his book ‘Design and Crime’

focuses on the political economy of design and explain, branding as slavery.

(HE IS AGAINST BRANDING)

Adolf Loos is Architecture and Theorist of Modern Architecture, in his manifesto and essay ‘Ornament

is a Crime’ defend beauty of clear surfaces and see ornament as a Crime. (which I will be explaining in

my coming book R-EVOLution of Architecture)

 

FREEDOM

BE A DIOGENES RATHER THEN CIRCUS MONKEY

Diogenes (Greek philosopher), and emphasize self sufficiency, Define himself as citizen of the world.

He lived in the same era with The Alexander the Great who one day ask him;

Is there a favor I can do for you?

Diogenes replied Stand out of my sun.

Later in his life Alexander declare; if I am not Alexander I would rather be Diogenes. Platon describe him as Crazy Socrates.

He is as marginal as reaching to a point where, after seeing a boy drinking from the hollow his hands, he threw his water cup and say, Fool that I am, to have been carrying superfluous cup all this time.

The freedom starts where you loose the fright of loosing.

 

WELL BEING     LUXURY    BRANDING

Idealization take time, and well being is not a vain concept if you approach from a higher point of view and we will learn and balance it. Luxury can create slavery as poverty.

Book stores are full of different types of motivation methods about healing the wounds.

These concepts of Well-being, Lux can be vain also if they capture you in the comfort zone and prevent you from your real life purpose. If you are confused between the purpose and tools in life, this is because the hidden slavery pushing from everywhere. Ultimately, the new advertising strategy called ’Brand Loyalty’ with the aim putting an invisible handcuff which is quite dangerous for individual and good for sustainability.

If we remember, we owe to people who leave their lux, comfort for higher purposes and use their power of will and determination. These frontier souls burn the fire inside of them and enlighten the humanity with show strength towards distraction and all kind of obstacles to destruct the barriers.

These are the one who put a stick in the wheel of fate and disorient its alignment.

Luxury – well being can be unique tools in life unless you are addicted.

My approach is slightly different from those who, before me, compare the words ‘design’ and ‘crime’.

Today thank God, we are approaching to an era where being childish becoming popular.

Nobody wants to get old,

No body want to die before living the best life they can.

Todays artist are not Death

Being death at 27 is out

Being fit on 72 is in.

No body want to die before living the best life they can.

Madonna Marilyn Monroe

Now we are facing with a generation accused of as being shallow because the inhabitants of the previous

century, count virtue, not showing their happiness, their belongings, do not share with public view and

relate suffer and grief and sorrow with matureness. today people are encouraging to show their life to

masses and earn their life by showing and advertising them.

Today, it is certain that mere survival of imminent death is not the focus any longer, as much as in past

ages, but living and sharing to the best extent you can, is getting the applause and attention of the

masses.

 

NOTHING BUT DEATH

Before the developments in Medical and science (Industrial Revolution) the life altogether was dealing

with the inevitability of death and and our despair attitude towards life is always highlighted with

Philosophies like ‘Memento Mori’ , ‘Omnia Vanitas’ express the transience/ temporariness of life. Life

after Death is well mentioned and create the focus from literature to paintings. (Dante, Divine comedy,

Inferno was a look to life after Earth)

 

By the developments and Industrial revolution, the focus of life changes dramatically.

the understanding transfer from death to life,

In the eighteenth Century, there came the scene the philosophy of Art.

Immanuel Kant influence our understanding about beauty and aesthetics.

 

When the philosophy of art began to be made, art was freed from the coffin to which it was stuck.

Art is for Art’

‘Art is for society’

Enlarge the meaning of Art and Life and carry them to another realm which is more abstract and delicate.

 

The Sprit of art is saved from where it is stuck and set it free. (and still in progress)

 

Even thought art seems very real (think about renaissance and), it was not letting us to reach the inner core. The physical body was a mask and emotions are well hidden behind.

 

These questioning of art creates a break through and the sprit release itself from its body.

we move from the Serene eye of Mona Lisa to Edward Munch’s painting Scream, where he painted a person’s inner scream. An abstraction of an inner being where he is screaming on behalf for all of us.

 

Twentieth century art is progressing on conceptual level.

 

Where Hegel define as end of art is where black swans are welcomed and create the beginning of another thing.

 

Where you cannot think further, there happens a turning point or let’s say a wave so thinks change in an unexpected way.

Charlie Chaplin

Seeing a city from a distance at night give the impression like descent of the stars to the Earth.

Yes, ‘City Lights’ are a magical concept that has been a subject of even Charlie Chaplin’ film.

Even though going out after work with friends to dinner integrating with cultural and entertainment activities of the city is a great suggestion in terms of socializing the truth does not match with the situation.

 

I am focusing on smart technologies in alignment with human because if we use the tools technology enables us we may have chance to eliminate the disruptions.

People are immigrating to cities not to sit on top of concrete fields but to have a chance in life. This can only happen if we increase our consciousness towards nature and environment.

 

INDUSTRIAL R-EVOLution

We have managed big step in democratization of Art and Design, this mass production created monotony, alliance, loneliness and bring its own Psychological problems and contradictions with.

Man in the Mirror

MAN ON THE CORNER

The Royals families may still be privileged, but not like, Pharaoh of Egypt, thought to be believe as coming from the blood of Gods. It turned out that ordinary people possessed the same essence and has he power upon their lives by the invention of quantum physics. The eccentric world of quantum has no any distinction between me and you. Power, is from within and can only be gained by perception and consciousness towards life. Digitalization and worldwide web distributed collected knowledge to society.

The multiplying of knowledge, critical thinking and Democratization of art and design trigger people understand their own value. This democratization of the knowledge coming from quantum physics equalize the man on the corner and kings because they can influence the world as a Queen does which can create a butterfly impact.

 

This is the day of the man on the corner. Everybody is wondering about the thoughts of the ordinary person.

 

The world has dramatically changed, the attention has moved from society to the individual and that is the reality of today.

 

Culturally, look at the movies.  The number of superheroes, not just from the graphic novels, has multiplied, turning into a crowded middle-class.

 

Remember, Juddu Krishnamurti, the chosen one who expected to sacrifices himself for the reincarnation of Buddha and he quit in the last minute and walk away. Afterwards he wrote many books about the importance of Individual and freedom Like ‘You are the world’, ‘First and last freedom’, ‘Total Freedom’.

 

Remember Michael Jackson’s song MAN IN THE MIRROR and its lyrics;

I am starting with the man in the mirror

I am asking him to change his way

And no message could have been any clearer.

Krishnamurti

RISE OF INDIVIDUALITY

Even if Krishnamurti stand up and walk away, Buddha certainly reincarnated in a conceptual dimension 25 years after his physical death, as he said, and instilled a level of consciousness into the world that we know as the 68 generations.

The Flower  Children of the last century. Now progressing as New Age Current

Individuality is a concept, revolution of industry brings into our lives and set us free from our obligatory connection with other people.

At the end we all birth alone die alone but in between live in society

There are times to be individual there are times where to act with society none is more important.

We need to learn to be together, without being dependent

CAN DESIGN HELP US BALANCING THESE CONFLICTS CREATED?

 

Architecture is much more than X Y Z plane.

Even if you design the most beautiful place in the world, you can not go there if it smells bad.

Place is both emotionally and logically basis of human there initiate your movement in life.

 

There is Neuroscience and artificial intelligence nowadays becoming extremely popular which interact with all kind of ambitions.

(interactive products – artificial intelligence and sensor-enriched)

 

 

We are actually giving emotional reactions to our surrounding and not it is time to understand our reaction to our surrounding.

From the very ancient times the reason of creating a place is physical and emotional support. We understand the codes of physical side till now. With Vitrivious man- Modulor.

But now it is time to understand the codes of emotional place.

 

EMOTIONAL PLACE.

Is there a common understanding toward place as we human?

What is subjectivity

These question will be solved in the coming ages. As we are Progressing toward Golden Age.

TILL NOW

If we examine the architecture we are constructing till now, we see a building that does not communicate with us in no other level. When we are in the industrial age Le Corbusier Use the analogy Machine and resemble House to a machine. Now it is proofing itself to the fullest. We are trying to adapt, Smart home, Smart home device, Smart building, smart cities but, do you really think the houses selling as smart are really smart enough?

 

The latest scientific knowledge of our times is used for explaining life and for analogies, the industrial age, brain and body is thought to be more like machine. But Machines are not foreseeing anything has not any emotion and communication skill, they have on/off button and level of speed (Gear) and that’s it.

Now we are in computer age and comparing our brain and body and cities with computer which robotizing our industry life and constructions also. 3D print is a good example of it.

But still lack of communication and next we will be passing to Quantum Age (and computers) where we will start to use the analogy of brain and quantum mechanics. and also by the help of Neuro- science and artificial intelligence, the machines, homes, buildings cities will begin to work like our extension.

 

Information City is understanding of interactions between the components and making the invisible visible by using the extension of information architecture on city scale to make better new city designs.

 

Responsive cities are preparing to came to scene

We are now living in informations age, we collect great amount of data, which needs to translate and transform into knowledge and when this knowledge is created we will be passing to responsive cities and AGE OF SENSES.

 

When the knowledge comes forth from these smart city collection, then we will be able to understand the pattern of cities and infrastructural jam can be distributed from the infrastructural pattern to city level and may be much more dynamic changeable city plans we will see- where the patterns of cities will be changed and arranged according to necessary needs of that moment. When this will be in a computer that will be driven by Artificial intelligence. That kind of technology can be use for highest good of humanity. The entire city becomes an information organism. The Data and information creates knowledge when come together will lead us to responsive cities. The information will count as one of the building components of the architecture in close future.

 

 

Our senses going to become an issue of science, that need to be interpretation and use as a pivot which makes data scientist – the next fortune tellers of the next decade.

 

Data-Science, Neuro-Science, Artificial Intelligence will merge in the architecture to conceptualize architecture and we will understand nature much better and what nature is much deeper meaning. Biomimicry will be understanding at more conceptual and deeper levels Which I am calling Conceptual Functioning,

function beyonds function beyonds function and beyonds…

 

 

AS ABOVE SO BELOW

Like; the ventilation of a sea Shell, it creates zero noise. Today what makes our cities our civilization stressful and stress creating is because of the noise it is creating from our computers to cars to our building and factories and our airplanes.

web silk strength of a spider is strong as bulletproof vest can be used in space habitats especially inflatable constructions.

Termite mounds, create small gaps in the façade to manage ventilation, the air condition engines outside the building is the bottom line of visual noise. The nature is wise and achieve its evaluation in billions of years.

The nature is alive, it is omnipotent, what is called as Anima Mundi.  It creates even the smallest amount on consciousness. It does not create dirt, it does not create noise, everything nature does has a purpose and so what is our civilization?

We need to understand before we consume it.

We are on the very beginning of understanding nature.

Sense architecture will open another realm where and our architecture will begin to be much more meaningful in the coming centuries.

 

 

 

Scientification of Architecture

SCIENTIFICATION OF ARCHITECTURE

BLACK MONOLITHS

First one is the invention of Perspective by Italian Renaissance Architect; Filippo Brunelleschi, who invented the connection between the worlds that stands there and my perception.  Perspective is a system combine and organize two things in one.

 

And second stage is neuro-science, sensor technology, data analyzing and artificial intelligence merging them into architecture.

So we can move on a higher ground

 

Today our civilization is energy vampire, consuming and we are the consumers, we are the passive elements in nature, like the moon but we need to became like sun and radiate energy to us and our environment.

 

Our civilization is leaving only concrete ruins with no meaning at all.

The first thing we need to get ide off is cables. We look like we are killed by Jack the ripper. The amount of blood vessels in our body rotate the world several times while my computers wire masses my house with its sight.

 

Our anxiety towards artificial intelligence or these Technologies are now unnecessary, as we humans already living in nature much more clever than we are and we manage to survive. The nature disaster happens when you resist the nature forces that you can never win. And It shouldn’t be forgotten the atomic bomb that caused the greatest harm to humanity is a man made product.

one day will open the gates of sky

MOSES AND MAGIC WAND

 

Why did I Write all this this stuff is the reason to give a road map for the future,

 

As we humans have been living with our tools and instrument since the first walking stick (Wand) had been made. (Later this task raised to magical levels)

 

We have coming from a long way by discovering the covered, constructing places impossible and survive under all conditions we have been.

 

To the extent that all of the developments I have described above continue, the path of structuring in space will be opened, and we will keen on structuring in beyond earth as far as our technologies will progress in space.

 

First

We first step backwards to underwater and take our speed by the knowledge we gain and jump a way head to stars.
