Munich in a rush

I'm already in the north of Sweden but here is a post on the last couple of days in Munich, in a rush... there was a great Anish Kapoor show at the amazing Haus der Kunst
the scale is so german
I took tons of photos of these great torques. If you're at the Haus der Kunst, check out the lobby with great pieces by Konstantin Grcic
then, rushing over to Pinakothek der Moderne, one of my favourite tables ever by Gaetano Pesce (I actually think its a table, maybe its just a foot)
and more Gaetano, but the photo doesnt do it justice
and great Joseph Beuys
all the fountains are covered during the winter,
resulting in wooden paranoia
but great
non stop
and this pattern is Munich
funny side of a building
multicolor climbing wall somewhere
great street lamps... and check the DLD website in a few days when all the talks will be posted. Look out for the panel on design moderated by Paola Antonelli featuring Greg Lynn, John Maeda, Yves Behar and great Konstantin Grcic, as well as the architecture panel by Kazys Varnelis featuring Bjarke Ingels, Patrick Schumacher and lovely Charles RenfroDLD ended with a big party as usual, with music by Howie B + vj by Miltos Manetas. Here is Angelo's all over the Bayerischerhof ballroom
