Architecture is Pure Shit

Frank Gehry tells off contemporary architecture, Google maps the desert on camelback and Marcel the Shell returns in our weekly look at the web

When the world’s greatest (or worst, depending on who you ask) living architect speaks, everyone pays close attention. Especially when he says that 98% of architecture today is pure shit and gives the audience the middle finger. That’s exactly what Frank Gehry did at a recent awards ceremony in Spain. The 85 year old then made clear that true architects care only about their work and their next project, while critics and criticism are basically a waste of time.
