Honoré d’O (Belgium); detail of his installation “Het Schoonste Curacao moet nog komen”, 2007. He did this installation during his residence on the IBB and I would like to give it as an exemple of beauty, and as the most creative architectural modell for a theatre on Curacao!!

Because of the www.6thfcaabiennial.com on Curacao, we as IBB organised a workshop for the Caribbean architects. Me, Sofia Zaveedra Bruno, together with architect and our chairman of the IBB board, Carel Weeber were leading this workshop. The topic was to build/design a new theatre for Curacao. There are a lot of discussions about it on the island, especially about the place. We wanted to have fresh and neutral opinions of our guests about two places/options which are not on the specific list of locations which one discusses on Curacao. They had not much time, because in a ‘pressure-cooker-precess’ of ca. 3 hours they had to produce sketches, ideas and a modell. Furthermore, they had tot work in small groups and continue eachothers ideas………

In the evening they were asked to explain their ideas to their collegues during the lectures.

    dear david bade.

    this is not a comment on these pictures,
    but i have to write publicly now, because my emails to you somehow seem to get lost.

    the first email i wrote was replied, the second not, so i wrote a hesitated, a bit unfriendly (i’m sorry for that) second email,
    this time you recieved it and answered that my tone was not okay and you didn’t get any email with questions in it.
    than i answered with an excuse and told you why i wrote this unfriendly, impatient email,
    but i think this mail, again, got lost and
    so i stopped trying.

    so , one more time,
    here’s what i tried to tell you…

    …we(some students and n.schwontkowski) had an exhibition at the metis galery in amsterdam.
    i forgot to take pictures of my works.
    one of them, i’ve heard is at yours now.
    it is a little hill with a street and a street-lamp on it- the “holy head”…

    now i want to talk about it with someone who is living at the southpacific
    so i need a photo of it.

    i’m sorry for bothering you because you have nothing to do with my forgetfulness.
    but i would be very pleased, if you could send me a photo of the “holy head”.

    furthermore i wanted to tell you that i like your style.
    i was kind of proud of and interested in that wild artist who got my work.
    also schwontkowski said:
    “david bade?
    greetings from me, it’s a good man!”

    and i’d like to see that school on curacao some day.
    i was wondering about doing jobs there, if needed…

    so long,
    greetings from the grey
    winterly hamburg
