OLE SCHEEREN PUTS HIS STAMP ON VENICE

Ole Scheeren is for me potentially the greatest living Architect, and yesterday I had the luck to go to his opening at the Architecture Biennale in Venice, with Fashion Editor,  Rushka Bergman, for L'uomo Vogue. He also happens to be the most boyish.  A contemporary platform with a cinema is interesting in the ancient city of Venice, sponsored by Wallpaper Magazine, Linda Davies and a few others.
Ole had ideas to bring things from the East to the West. It had a lightness and beauty that he was interested in. Architecture is about problems, confronting the problems, then solving them. Confuscious, Mao and Microsoft, standing side by side. Thought and reality, making things happen that are not expected.
OLE SCHEEREN
A documentary was shown on the Archipelago Cinema designed by him, filmed by Horst Bradenburg.  A lecture on Ole's work in the Far East with funky contemporary music, Ole has been an inspiration for Horst.   I loved learning about the life of a young architect nowadays but his work must speak for itself.
