Did chaz rape someone in freeway park? I just don't understand the obsession.

I understand the distinction between the two discourses but would argue that even though they can be separated for discussion, they are intimately linked, and that should always be acknowledged.

As a reader of Marx, I see this as use value vs. exchange value scenario, where the former refers to the actual performance of the building while the latter refers to what Walter Benjamin calls the exhibition value (of a work of art), which is how we most easily "experience" the building.

Thanks for the response and the link.

The new Four Seasons is just a petty attempt to get back at the people who made them give up the contract for The Olympic. But without The Olympic, Four Seasons is just another stick-up-the-butt business for the nouveau riche. Like Nordstrom, but with beds.

If Seattle isn't green enough for you, please move to Portland.
