A shadow of my former self
One word: Overcrowded. I didn't have as much fun at this one as I did at the previous 6 I've been to....I think the conference planners underestimated the number of possible attendees, because the hallways were packed between sessions....almost impossible to move....enough to keep me away from sessions on a couple of days (since my ankle was bugging me....reaggrivated an old sprain).Big Easy King said:Great photos! How was the conference?
I only got one pic....as the vehicle I was in passed by. Wasn't there long enough to really comment on it.Gedunker said:[OT] Any comments on the WWII memorial on the Mall? I hear it is rather, uhhh, poorly executed. Anybody see it?[/OT]
I've read several architecture critics who all called it "Fascist", and "Art Deco Fascism", such that Mussolini would love. They said it doesn't cause the viewer to reflect the way the Viet Nam Memorial does, doesn't inspire the way the Shaw Memorial in Boston does. And they rant about its impacts on the Mall.PlannerGirl said:Poorly executed? In what way? I saw it from the air and from ground level yesterday during and after my moble workshop and thought it bit with the landscape very well, picked up elements from other monuments well etc. Its quite moving.
