Another Rand development

Right, so Singapore keeps being filled with all these new condominiums with names that have zero sense of place - they're just generic sounding names such as "Palm Fronds" or "Sun Island" (I'm making these up, of course). So why not create one named the Fountainhead? I can see the ad copy now:
Celebrate your achievement at the Fountainhead. There are no second-hand souls here, no obligations to the community. Designed by a brilliant architect, the Fountainhead is near to independent, non-state-controlled schools. Freehold.
But I suppose the market for ironic literary references in housing developments must be tiny.



their ironic (not so literary) references stems from trying to assume the identity of exotic places like "The Caribbean".

most pathetic.


I liked that book!

And if it is a modernist cutting edge sensitive and timeless design - i would definfitely buy it!


i had a brief fling with objectivism in my early 20's until i realized you can't trust any philosophy that is utterly humorless.

drinks tonight at union bar, club street. short notice, but notice!


Ayn Rand?!?! Come on... We should call the development like Arakkis. Or Atreides. Or Gedi Prime. Or Foundation. Or Mines of Moria
