'Bedpan' Wins Award

I.C. - Bedpanarama (2007)Beijing National Stadium - "The Bedpan" - by Herzog & De Meuron wins the international Brit Insurance Design of The Year 2008 award for architecture. This is one of 7 award categories. Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition wins the graphics category. Meyra-Ortopedia’s Mex-x wheelchair for children wins the transport award. The overall winner will be announced on 18 March. The exhibition of 100 contenders continues at London's Design Museum until April 27 (title link). Shame the museum is clueless about website design. Blocks of upper case letters: wrong. Pink and green text on a glaring white screen: lousy contrast. Tiny fonts: yuk. Irritating Adobe Flash Player 9 nonsense; safe, though. Coxsoft Art Silver Surfer Friendly Award? Not a chance!

Apparently, "Ethiopian world champion long-distance runner, Haile Gebrselassie, is to pull out of the marathon at the Beijing Olympics. on the grounds that polution levels in the host city are so bad that it would be unsafe for him to compete."

I saw that on BBC News the other day. Add to this the Chinese crackdown going on in Tibet this weekend and I think maybe it's time to start a "Boycott the Bedpan Olympics" campaign.
