Nicolai Ourousoff gives Zaha Hadid a tongue-lashing for her complicity in this Chanel consumption-vomitorium in Central Park, designed to house artworks made in homage to a quilted Chanel bag.


That’s just gross.

I thought that was the set for "Ugly Betty" at first.

I love it! Mostly because it looks like a giant coffin.

Zaha should turn in her Pritzker.

If you find this repulsive research PRADA in the desert.

Some "artist" enacted a similar structure in a stretch of vast desert..."coveted items" to never be touched.

The Chanel exhibit would appear to be a knock off...GASP!

And what's with that giant panel gap in the ceiling of the tunnel?

A retail Ozymandias. Once again the Law of Unintended Consequences proves itself. What was planned as an homage to ultra-consumption is now travesty.
