In the future, everything will be a museum

In the future, everything will be a museum.
Started doing a kind-of review of 2012 yesterday via selectively submitting things I've written here at Archinect to appropriate pages at Quondam. I had no recollection of having started this thread, but seeing it again reminded me that there are some vintage Eisenhower postage stamps in one of the drawers next to me.

Maybe I'll design my own Eisenhower Memorial at Quondam somehow incorporating all the ideas above. Was Eisenhower's presidency more Modernist or more Post-Modernist I wonder? Also, I now wonder if there will ever again be a General to become a US President.

You know, I've come around to the notion of saving the building because it would be perfect as the world's first Sado-Masochistic Architecture Museum. First off, you wouldn't have to change a thing, nor repair anything, for that matter. The building would become famous--well, maybe famous isn't the right word, but such a museum would definitely garner lots of media attention. And just think of all the opportunities to educate the masses, but in a twisted way, of course. Some would gleam knowledge of what architecture shouldn't be, while others (at the same time) gleam knowledge of what architecture should be. Kinky, indeed. Oh, and the t-shirts in the museum shop say, "I visited the Sado-Masochistic Architecture Museum and all I got was this lousy t-shirt that says 'Shock me, I'm bourgeois!'" Wait! Wait! There's also another t-shirt that says, "Suck isn't the only thing that architecture does."
