Tyson/タイソン

今週は忙しかったので、建築本“Strike a Pose” 第三章のレヴューはお休み。そのかわり、昔々、安藤忠雄氏に初めてお会いした頃、建築を「生きるか死ぬか」という表現で話されていたことをふと思い出したので、今日から全米で公開されるマイク・タイソンのドキュメンタリーフィルムのムービートレイラーを御紹介。残念ながらここにあるものは、米国でしか見ることのできない設定になっているので、この映画に興味のある方は、映画のオフィシャルサイトを御覧あれ。

A long time ago, Tadao Ando once told me about a similarity between boxing and architecture. He was a young (I was like a kid still…) and extremely intense man with a threatening gaze. Basically Ando was trying to tell me that one needs to approach architecture like its do or die… heww, what a view on architecture.

I had no interest in martial arts of any kind around that time, but was intrigued by a nineteen year old kid named Mike Tyson that I saw on TV one day. I started to follow his every fight on TV. This documentary film which opens today shows many clips from that time as well as some people like Teddy Atlas, Mitch “Blood” Green I got to know later at the gym in Brooklyn.

Tyson was AWESOME. So was Ando… but I am having a hard time finding any commonality between boxing and architecture.
