Ceci n'est pas une Lamp!!!

Are we architects? Are we artists? Are we designers? Are we all of that? My answer is yes we are! This lamp named Vortexx was made by the architect Zaha Hadid in collaboration with Patrick Schumacher. I think it is a very beautiful object, more than a lamp. Yet it is a lamp!Is this art? Architecture? Design? Again: I think it is everything combined. There is no way (Mel) that we have to categorize ourselves into architects. But yet we are!Confusing and strange world we live in!!
Is Zaha Hadid an architect or an artist? I think we are ARCHISTS...it sounds better!

painful, true, real, and often ... a total mind trip!

and like you say ... let's do it!
