I once held in my hand, handwritten letters between Louis I. Kahn and Jackie O’—though she had signed her name Jackie Kennedy. I was a PhD candidate, spending a month in Louis Kahn’s archive at The University of Pennsylvania. Jackie, when she wrote those letters, was a new widow, approaching Kahn to design her late husband’s memorial library. The tone of their correspondence, was noticeably flirtatious.
All I can say, is Frederik, be careful. These rising starchitects flirt like crazy with first ladies, and trust me, I know from experience, if you mention you’re an architect, women in positions of power develop a certain radiance that would fog the best infra red lens. This series of photos, retweeted a moment ago by @BjarkeIngels (oh, show some discretion sir!) would surely speak volumes to even the most amateurish observer of body language. And one last word Frederik, just remember how she got you!
I have more to say on Danish lax morals, in this earlier blog post.
