KIF or KAK?by Nathan Zeno / 08.06.2009
I blame Charles Jencks. The scary thing about this garage door is not that it merely exists but that, from the fresh look of the paint and steel, it looks like it has come into existence recently. Five years ago during the eighties revival this might have had an “awww cute” factor, but now it’s just plain mystifying. I know there was a proliferation of “post-modern” style in Durban in the late eighties and that some of it still lurks. Could this misguided home owner think that those random examples are actually recent? Or is it an eleborate joke? A post-modern joke? That circle is made of Tread Plate. Tread Plate! I say no more.
