There is a study entitled “A general theory of love” which has on its cover a picture of two chairs, one chair positioned so that it leans against the other one. Immediately you get that these ordinary identical chairs are in love. Much in the same fashion I see these two buildings dancing. I wrote about this tower a few weeks ago, mistaking it for two towers. Now I see it’s one. Yet I still feel it’s two. I imagine that the tower in front is as wide on its right side as the tower in the back. They would be identical, just mirrored, and thus dancing. I can hardly believe how strong this impression is. A part of my brain shouts at me like I am some Gollem: ‘These are block buildings you romantic fool, nothing in this picture is dancing, least of all that building, which is ONE building, you moron.’ But I don’t believe him, I believe the other part of my brain, which says ‘What an architect! Making something as heavy and unrefined and industrial as office block towers look like a couple on the dancefloor. Chapeau, chapeau!’ For a second there I thought it might be the perspective chosen by the photographer. But I remember from a few weeks ago that then too I saw movement in these towers, writing how I saw one peeking from behind the other. No matter how I look at it, these huge colossuses of steel and concrete and glass are alive. Moreover, they are holding each other at the hip and swirling over the neighbourhood that is their dancefloor. Wouldn’t you agree?
