Repost via @architectural_diet - Université Mohammed VI Polytechnique by Ricardo Bofill
"Here more than elsewhere, I needed to take into account a context. An art of living. A civilisation. Re-establish a link with what used to be a national source of pride: the art of building a city. Cities that the world continues to admire, from the beating heart of old Marrakesh, Jemaa el-Fna, to the mosque of Cordoba, Spain.
This project reinforced my conviction that it was possible to join the richness of Morocco’s heritage with modernity. Recognising the strength of a tradition does not mean that you only look backwards; approaching the future with an antiquated mentality would be fatal. The economic, technical and social conditions in which the Mohammed VI campus is being built today, not to mention the whole of the Green City, are completely removed from those that gave rise to the Koutoubia and the Agdal Basin. In Benguerir I wanted arcades, covered or semi-covered streets, public spaces that were relatively tight and narrow. Details that speak to those who were born in the Kingdom, or who know its subtleties at the very least. I invented an architecture that emphasises the geometry of the square, works through all the variations of the patio, and that brings back the major figures of Moroccan culture, such as the moucharaby or the Arab–Andalusian arabesque. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
he Mohammed VI Polytechnic University project is unique. For its size. For its climate. For its ambitions. For its methodology. And for the range of skills that it had to bring together. The industrialisation of the construction process proved itself to be necessary, along with rapid decision making. Strong, legitimate environmental and technological expectations were satisfied. The urban story is being written now more than ever—but in a time that is steeped with centuries of culture." -Ricardo Bofill
Dear Friends, I’ve been doing some more reading than usual lately. I started to reread parts of #bigmagic which continues to be a source of clarity in the creative process. I’ve also thought a lot about what the former FLOTUS with the mostest, @michelleobama said at the DNC. A Salon Article titled, “Michelle Obama’s dignified restraint: ‘When they go low we go high’ are words to live by.” The author Williams writes, “Obama was speaking to the difficult, important, invisible work of not declaring fear and divisiveness, of not becoming the things we despise... It’s super easy to loudly boo like a petulant child when you don’t like what somebody is saying - and that boo will be heard when someone else’s respectful, grown up silence is not... What if behaving like an adult was really about just being honest...What if all of us remembered Michelle Obama’s words the next time we’re being provoked? What if high was as true as low? That’s the person I want to be. And that’s the America I want to live in.” #amen#chickensoupforthesoul#whentheygolowwegohigh#inspiringquotes#wordstoliveby#whatifs#whatifitoldyouastory#wintervibes#highroad#rye#values

Introduced to this interesting bourbon at a local whisky show 2yrs ago, and have enjoyed it ever since. There’s a good amount of cinnamon and treacle along with some light spices. I have found however that the flavours seem to be subtly different from bottle to bottle with this one being a little more floury or dry on the mouthfeel from the oak influence. It’s not bad, but it’s not what I was expecting. In any case, A delicious addition to the shelf.
