This truly has to be seen to be believed - a new apartment block on S. Hoover, very close to USC, called "Element" - and boasting panels of false grass. Doubtless the wood is plastic, too. It's architectural brutalism in eco-clothing. It's almost the nastiest bit of falsity I've seen all day - almost, but not quite. Jennifer Tucker, giving one of the presentations at today's VSRI event, showed an unforgettable slide of Donald T---p getting his likeness sculpted and primped at Madame Tussaud's - and the hair on his wax effigy is YAK HAIR (and, I find on-line, squirrel). Could anything be more perfect?
