Die young, Stay Pretty

“Ageing in Junkspace is inexistant or catastrophic” Rem said it Die young, Stay pretty.

Already crumbling down, through the eyes of our dear James Wines*, the Supermarket assumes its inherent skill of being the Kingdom of the planned obsolescence where everything is consumed and consumable. Disposable as its contents, the supermarket doesn’t have any future because it doesn’t have any past. Enthusiastic Baudrillard called it “the myth of a perpetual Spring” when cynical Koolhaas despicted it as “a Sisyphean myth” where every single thing related to the consumerist temple is recovering from today, to look exactly the same, tomorrow.

*of whom MVRDV failed to copy his amazing work, or actually did a worse version of it.
