Her death today was absolutely shocking. I think it’s because Zaha was always so amazingly powerfully THERE. She was a life force. She was brilliant and she was mean. A life of fighting for position took its toll. She was not nice. In fact, she was horrible. Look at that face. But you could not resist her and you could not ignore her astounding work. We will miss all aspects of this giant relentless breathtaking woman. Click on her photo above to go to a tribute today in the Guardian, a list with photos of her ten most extraordinary buildings. And click on the photo below to go to a great interview with her in an amazing magazine called UNCUBED. It’s where both of these photos are from.
moss bureau blog is the covert gateway to the inner world of Moss Bureau. Behind the scenes, through the looking glass, up the down staircase, over the rainbow, all around the town. Our town. Our Town. We cover the bureau-front, from top to topless, stem to stern, sea to shining see. We open drawers and draw our own conclusions. The designers, the artists, the interns, friends and foes, clients and miscreants, consultants and co-defendants, the Fairs and the unfair, the good fight and the bad lieutenant, lies, truths, massive cover-ups, mitigating circumstances, plausible deniabilities. The undercooked and the overlooked. Wet-work, dry wall, the dog, the pony, the smoke and the mirrors. We look down the barrel, pull the trigger, and face the music. Fearless, feckless, and born to run. Sometimes a cigar really is just a cigar. Think different. It’s later than you think.

- My mother with a gun probably scared them. But whatever the reason, the amazing news is that Amazon has SLASHED the price of book a DIZZYING UNBELIEVABLE 8 cents. That's right. An entire 8 cents. This could be it. This could be what pushes us RIGHT OVER THE TOP. Know what I mean? If I were you, I wouldn't look a gift horse, as they say in Hamden. #pleasedonottouchthebook #amazon #gifthorse #eight #eightcents #murraymoss #franklingetchell #rizzolibooksHere's a brilliant photo of our brilliant book leaning against a grill cover in a California town near Spring Valley, taken by our niece Julie Moss Lewis who was litigiously specific that I attribute. She is after all a prosecutor. Anyway, even if you ignored everything we said and did not get your mother our book for Mother's Day, Julie has been enjoying it mightily and while this photo may suggest otherwise is not planning to burn it in order to cook dinner. #springvalleyca #pleasedonottouchthebook #mothersdayCHEAPER THAN AMAZON !
