7.

Indeterminate Façade, crumbling brick Houston. Un-Postmodern James Wines, Postmodern avatar. Incredible material culture, even good, even now, no longer. Social critique, no humanism, rather rhetorical play. Best in ’58, wealth from cheap goods, art hobby for health, kitsch and contentiousness. Architectural marvel, shoppers’ street art. Local colour, drastic automation, disrepair, an ironic loss.
