In Blubberland, award-winning critic Elizabeth Farrelly looks at our “superfluous superfluity,” our huge eco-footprint, and asks why we find it so hard to abandon habits we know to be destructive.

The poet perpetuates in his poem an order of existence which in actual life is constantly crumbling beneath his touch. At night, the glow emanating from the Sykes Chapel and Center for Faith and Values sets a contemplative mood. These studies are compelled to continuously redefine architecture and then, each successive time, to reject it, to salvage it, to upset its meaning: not on the bases of abstract generalisations, but by founding the research for a new quality on the solid ground of the partial questions asked by architecture of architecture.
