• The Theory of Alcoholic Architecture

    London now sports what it's owners have described as the world's first walk-in cocktail.

    Don the sort of coverall you see in science labs and walk into a misty room. The room is the "bar" and the mist is gin and tonic.
    Presumably, chilling in this cocktail and breathing deeply long enough is equivalent to actually having a drink.
    It's weird and enticing. And from an architectural design perspective, it does some funny things by materializing the genus loci of a bar as alcohol and turning the usual voids into semi-present alcoholic solids. Theorists, have stiff drink and ponder this one.
