Aaron Betsky Lecture - Slow Space 

Betsky has an idea to share; his lecture is about nothing.
He says utopia is nothing; I remember my brief infatuation with Rem Koolhaas.
Culture, city, modernism, crossroads; reducing, sprawling, dissipating, open.
The Newmark’s sound system fails; Betsky’s voice is fading to nothing.
Betsky struggles to make his slides work; He says the best designs are lazy.
The Dutch are hyper-aware of artifice; they know how to arrange information.
It took an hour to say one thing; new architecture is about making space empty.
There are no problems to solve; I wonder if my clients would feel the same.
