Lucy

Lucy the Margate Elephant is a New Jersey landmark built in 1881. Pilgrims came from all around to gaze in wide wonder at the Elephant god (after gambling). The back of this beautiful postcard from Atlantic City, New Jersey, 1950's, reads:

The only elephant in the world you can go through and come out alive. This famous building was erected in 1885. The elephant contains ten rooms; its interior is visited by thousands.

But it must have looked crazy back in 1881 when they built it. Still does!

Haha, imagine whole cities in zoomorphic architecture.. no, this is probably not the future of architecture.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Joyce Nabuurs: To me this question seems to be a logical next step in the emancipation movement of the past century. More and more women entered the workspace, but the responsibility for pregnancy and childrearing remained female.
