The Next Big Thing

James Stamp, who writes about architecture and the such, has an awesome idea of what all cities should build.

I’m open to suggestions.  Paul Revere? Sam Adams? Rosie Ruiz?

 

The Next Big Thing, by James Stamp

I started thinking, what’s going to be the next trend to storm our cities? Quickly realizing that I had no idea, I started thinking about what trend I would WANT to see storm our cities. The answer, of course, was simple: Giant Statues. Not just big statues, mind you, but mind-numbingly large figures that remind us of the heroic potential inherent in the human race.

I’d love to see every city construct a terrifyingly enormous statue. Think: the Colossus of Rhodes or the Statue of Liberty (relocated to the city proper). A sublime, anthropomorphic sculpture personifying the character and history of its respective metropolis. Located either at the city center of the entrance to the city, it would stand as an inspiring icon and, if Ghostbusters 2 has taught us anything, a potential defense system.

Complete post: Life Without Buildings

Addendum: Here are a couple other suggestions …

 

… Abe Lincoln statue, proposed for the city of Lincoln, Nebraska.

 

… Christopher Columbus statue, proposed for the city of  Miami, Toledo, Catano, Puerto Rico a city to be named later.
