A Trailer Park in Heaven
In February, Noreen Morioka, Michael Boshnaick, Marian Bantjes and I went to South Africa for the Design Indaba Conference. One of the highlights was finding a trailer park on the roof of the Grand Daddy Hotel in Capetown. When we heard about this we raced over to have cocktails and rudely insisted on seeing each one while they tried to clean. We were hoping for something more in the spirit of Peter Bogdanovich’s The Last Picture Show: hopeless, depressing, black and white, with an air of deseperation. But people probably don’t like staying at places like that.
