Déjà Vu

We are all able to identify a Gehry when we see one… It is like he is trapped in the Guggenheim style.

But have you ever thought that maybe that is what people wants? Every architect likes to change, experiment, but if the client wants a Guggenheim… that is what they are gonna get because they pay.

Another similar case is what happened to Jean Nouvel. If you see the proposal for Doha in Qatar… DÉJÀ VU! It is another Agbar Tower.

What I am trying to say is… don’t expect to have an Guggenheim of Agbar Tower for your own. Don’t imitate, innovate.
