On October 7th, 2022, Vladimir Putin turned 70 years old.

What does it mean to be 70 years old ?

Conventional wisdom would say that by this age wisdom would finally reach the human mind.

But is it so ?

Putin blasted the West, yet he had no problem to present himself, in countless photographs, as some kind of Hollywoodian “hero”, posturing himself in “strong” attitudes…

Is the macho mentality a sign of wisdom ?

We doubt it.

Unfortunately, lately, as we all know, the macho state of mind began to ravish, brutally, a neighboring country.

Who cares tens of thousands of people died ?

Who cares countless buildings were destroyed ?

The good Christian Vladimir Putin (please do notice the cross on his bare chest!) is certainly not amongst those who care(d).

What did we learn from the Second World War ?

Nothing, nothing at all.

The atrocities human kind are able to commit, repeat themselves.

The so-called “de-nazification” of Ukraine was nothing else but a ridiculously transparent veil behind which an irresistible hunger for new territories tried to hide… and of course, didn’t succeed.


So, how would one design A HOUSE FOR VLADIMIR PUTIN, for his 70th birthday ?

Would it be a modest house for a modest man and his modest family ?

Would it illustrate “the Russian World” and values even if it might be situated in Switzerland ?

Would it be “de-nazified ?”

Would it be, quite the opposite, IMMENSE, IMMENSE, IMMENSE ?

Would it be covered in gold, like a certain apartment in a certain tower in New York City ?

Would it be a very muscular house ?

An “invincible” house ?

Would it be simply an anti-atomic bunker ?

How would it be ?

Please be sarcastic, dear architect! Please be drastic! Please protest! Let’s give him the ANTI-PRESENT he deserves.
