For something completely different.
I am probably too pragmatic for these kind of things but I always wondered about the birth of political decisions:
"Hey Oswald, let's take a beautiful building, have a celebrated architect dump some structure on it and have the city of Antwerp look foolish (again.) What do you think?"
"That is a great idea! I know exactly such a building."
"And I know an architect..."
"Let's do this! "
To add insult to injury (and quiet predictably might I add), the expenses to raise this 'thing' have rocketed sky-high (the initial budget of 20M € have quadrupled!)
I will consulate myself by thinking you can make nice photo's of it...
