This book was published on the occasion of the #decorbuziers exhibition at ROMANTSO cultural center, 20-27 December 2015.
#Decorbuziers’ exhibition is part of the series of events organised by the School of Architecture NTUA, under the coordination of the professor Panagiotis Tournikiotis, in the year 2015, on the occasion of the 50 years anniversary of the death of the great modernist architect, Le Corbusier. The exhibition was organised, designed and implemented by a team of Greek architects.
The grande memorial mourning dark drag party fuck YEA #decorbuziers is the sexiest part of the events marathon (till we drop) organised by the last fortress of modernism in Greece (NTUA), under the supervision of the biggest fan (not) of Le Corbusier, Professor Panayotis Tournikiotis in 2015, on the occasion of the 50 years from the day that the deceased fled and swam to the island where he lives till this day with Elvis and Marilyn leaving us behind to measure rippling pillars and tiles searching for the golden ratio.
The exhibition begun as the lighthearted bi product of the serious series of NTUA. Nobody payed attention to us, neither understood what we meant by “media based installations” and “Kanye West” but we on our part did not reveal much in order to avoid censorship although PT fully backed us. We kept on working in the contours of our culture, in the non space of the internet, with names and emotions, with Miley and the meta deconstruction of LE Trismegistus in accordance with the late post modern era. The exhibition #decorbuziers mutated in the small parasite that hid under the fire bringer, grew up, get stronger and on the night of the 20th December devoured it releasing the descending generations of greek architects from the ghosts of his majesty, who became a meta lecorbusier a conceptual Frankenstein made up by memories, kudos, hybrids and cult.
Responsible for this mess, taking place in ROMANTSO from the 20th till the 27th of December, is a bunch of Greek unemployed architects, who were watching Baywatch during the ’99 earthquake, while eating cereals in their pyjamas, and now having grown up, have great aspirations to change the world by collecting degrees, exhibitions and likes in LinkedIn. Everything went according to the plan, everyone corralled with everyone and at the end we all drunk in memory of the deceased, took great pictures for instagram and we are planning on doing it again.
