They defibnitely smoked something odd, eh? Probably not just pot!

Dennis I won the bid to install the controls on Experience Music Project in Seattle. They needed to have a minority contractor for the job, so it was given away. From what I was told about how the job went, probably glad I wasn’t there. Sometimes you really win when you lose! :-))

They look OK to me.
(That probably says more about me than it does the buildings)

LOL

Thanks for posting, Dennis.

Thanks for this Dennis. I loved all of these buildings and enjoyed seeing them. I just can’t imagine any building contractor in his right mind bidding on work like that! I guess there are still a lot of brave people in the world.

I have worked on buildings with lots of curves and odd shapes. It doubles the cost, but there is always a fool that bids it too low. If my work did not follow after all the layout is completed and the mechanical pretty well alnong, Ii would not touch a job like those with a 20 feoot pole ;-))

Brit What have yiou been smoking ?? ;-))

Isn’t that cool! I love creations that are unique and so fun they make one smile. A twisted one like that looks Polish as does the designers name; naturally this Pollock [me] would understand the twisted thinking and designs of another Pollock. ;^)
Thank’s Dennis, that’s great…
PS When you see our names with all consonants and none or very few vowels, it’s Polish.
This reminds me of the Polish fellow who in getting on in years began having some visual problems so he scheduled an appointment with the optometrist and when he went to the doctor, the doctor said, “We’ll do a preliminary exam by having you step out into the hallway, hold this card in front of one eye and see how much of the chart at the end you can read.” So the Polish fellow goes out there with doctor, holds the card in front of one eye, looks down the hall at the chart, and says to the doctor, “I know all of those guys.”
Being Polish, it is a requirement that my friends and acquaintances know good Polish jokes.
Thanks again Dennis, that is great fun.

even the nature seems to like to place things werd places as the architect who attacked the big building
with a house I just saw a funny picture from Japan where the floodwawe has placed a minivan on a roof
sadly it is on another background than a brain´s thoughts

Yes it’s wonderful when we try to think out the box.
The biggest problem is to find investors for projects like these.
There are plenty of crazy arcitects… Some smoking the pipe.
