“Gourmanization of the Space” – Taste in architecture is like the taste of food.
Smell, color, taste – this feelings akin the feeling of optic nerves. Pleasure one experiences at the sight of appetizing building is comparable to dinner at a nice restaurant, and the more simple and unassuming ingredients are surprise us the more as a delicious in general could have been built. The pleasure of the experiment: combine salt with spicy at the architectural kitchen… Environment is saturated or nourishing. Architecture, that forcing to applaud to chief. Architecture as a compliment from the chief. The image of the food in the architecture and design of food. New alternative architectural competition from the “NMAXU”. We offer you to prepare delicious architecture beyond typology, functions, rules and regulations, and not be carried away by fast food in the form of American roadside diners: exactly replicate the kind of hot dog, hamburger or a donut.
