Never seen such useless architecture. Nevertheless it looks quite fascinating. Most people don’t get the trick that this piece is no building at all. It’s a piece of art. Art can be useless, but in an abstract sense never is. It tells always a story or makes people be astonished.
“The Cerro del Obispo lookout point is a tall, concrete monolith along a pilgrimage trail in Mexico. Designed by Christ & Gantenbien, the “pilgrims column” stands like an extruded amoeba or giant Aalto vase made out of concrete.”
As I indicated before the monolith has many haters, when viewing comments about that project on other websites: “Ridiculous,” “useless,” “vaginal phallus,” are the statements, that are floating around. People have a lot to say about this simple concrete tower. Most people don’t get the point, that this piece is somehow art and it’s purpose was to spread spirituality rather than utility.
