Big Red & Shiny: Did someone say 'Adhocracy'? An interview with Ethel Baraona Pohl
"…how are you working with Joseph Grima…around the idea of 'adhocracy', something that "captures opportunities, self-organizes and develops new and unexpected methods of production. ""

"…the concept of adhocracy is almost inherent in design. Work tools, new technologies and forms of communication, and strategies that facilitate self-organization—like DIY projects—are readily developable, urban actions that have a real impact on our environment."

"…there was some confusion on the part of the participants on the topic 'imperfection'—the overall theme of the Biennial—and the concept of adhocracy was brought up as a response to the proposals."

"…Peter Gadanho…recently said…"curating is the new criticism""

"…the most beautiful aspect of our times (and this is also related to the adhocracy), is that there is room and respect for all."

"multi-connected society can be very saturating for some people, but it also allows them, from their loneliness and isolation, to find what they need…"

cityofsound: Benjamin H. Bratton (Postopolis! LA)
"now we have...no choice but to focus attention on the conception of the Pre-. We are now...Pre-other things & some of the things we do now will scale into epochal institutions... Stamen will make maps for Olympic committees but their real interest is in how informationally-enabled modes of a cognitive urbanism can make space more permanently adventurous not just more transparent. They are card carrying Situationists...Their project is a new city. Their mandate is of the Pre, not so much the Post...Because design was a symbol of the bubble it is also a symbol of the bubble’s collapse. ... many ways of doing things, of designing things, of consuming things, of consuming design are ... zombie ideas. ... the opportunity is potentially at hand to redesign many of the fundamental social, cultural, economic institutions that govern our lives, and not just design the content that would fill these forms ... design model to which we should pay more attention is not productive, but subtractive."

Archinect : Features : CONSTELLATIONS OF LOS ANGELES
"For Postopolis! LA, I would like to do a Los Angeles 'drive by,' as we call them, here, in a car...

Let us say and imagine, in Los Angeles, urban scale "planned points of interests" are indeed constellations. They are places in this vast metropolis. They are formed by the grid, by the politicians and their supporters, developers, engineers, and, as far as the buildings go, the architects.

Separated by mere 15 miles and sometimes as close as the next lane, urban core of Los Angeles is indeed 'the house of everything.' All the variables contrasted and occupied. The grid goes for hundreds of sq. miles. These special constellations let us to assume, experience, imagine and expect while driving. They are vortices of our stories in an horoscopic sense. These are the lines of our reality and the reasons of our act.

Your next friendly gathering, cultural outing or errand, you drive by these constellations... There are thousands of them..."

cityofsound: Postopolis!: LOT-EK
"It's almost a performance piece, a tag team, working from a script, with the microphone (taped to a water bottle) switching between the two of them. When Lignano's talking, he runs through a series of rapid-fire photos, punctuated by descriptive words an

cityofsound: Postopolis!: Tobias Frere-Jones
"He says that the "shapes of our letters are just as important as the shapes of our buildings, or the accent in our voices ... (They're) just as important, in terms of recognising the city."

cityofsound: Postopolis!: Robert Krulwich
"Much of his talk concerned 'framing', and the way the media handles inclusion and exclusion, and how it creates spaces of framing."
