Following the disqualification (for plagiarism) of the original winner of an open competition to find a new logo for Bucharest, the city council this morning unveiled a new winner, and another new logo.
‘A mess’ is how we would describe it. After all, just what the fuck is going on over on the left hand side?
The bottom section is a mosque? The middle section a cathedral? The top part is the Atheneum, possibly?
It’s difficult not to come to the conclusion that this whole exercise has not been a pointless waste of time. We have no idea what London’s logo looks like, nor those of Paris, Amsterdam, Budapest or Prague. Or pretty much anywhere.
Pace Brecht, unhappy is the city in need of a logo.
