I'm only familiar with the exterior's of Gehry's work. How's he at handling interiors? I never hear anything about the interior of the Bilbao.

From what I understand--I've never been there--the interior of Bilbao is supposed to be pretty great, at least the lobby areas. I recall hearing the galleries weren't anything special, but that's probably to be expected.

The most controversial Gehry interior is a science building at MIT, which has an open-floor plan like the FB design. I've heard complaints that the MIT building is disorienting and, most of all, noisy and distracting.

What Is One-Way Street?

One-Way Street [Einbahnstrasse, 1928] was Walter Benjamin's first effort to break out of the narrow confines of the academy and apply the techniques of literary studies to life as it is currently lived. For Benjamin criticism encompasses the ordinary objects of life, the literary texts of the time, films in current release, and the fleeting concerns of the public sphere. Following Benjamin's lead, this blog is concerned with the political content of the aesthetic and representations of the political in the media. As Benjamin writes in One-Way Street, "He who cannot take sides should keep silent."
