7.3 Billion People, One Building

Sometimes we talk about where humans came from or where we might be going or how we’re all related; other times we look at how we interact and communicate and form relationships. We’ve talked about rich humans and famous humans and baby humans and dead humans and humans from all over the world. We’ve explored what it means to be a human, what it means to be a good human, and whether we’re all alone in the universe. And we’ve spent a lot of time trying to figure out what really matters most in this one, short human life. But somehow, we made it through all of that discussion without ever asking the most important question of all about humans— How big a building would you need to fit them all in it?

Gabba Gabba Hey. "Gabba Gabba Hey" is a catchphrase associated with the punk rock band the Ramones.

Gabba Gabba Hey

The phrase is included in the song "Pinhead" (1977), which contains the lyrics: "Gabba gabba, we accept you, we accept you, one of us. " The song ends with: "Gabba gabba hey, gabba gabba hey!... " History[edit] The phrase comes from a scene in the 1932 motion picture Freaks, in which the title characters chant the line "Gooble, gobble, we accept her, we accept her, one of us, one of us! " (The Ramones saw Freaks at an art house cinema on a rare day off when an outdoor event they were to perform at was canceled due to bad weather.)

As told to Alexandra Lange, the article presents direct quotes from Zaha Hadid, Daniel Libeskind, Norman Foster and four others regarding controversial architecture whose importance goes beyond aesthetics. See what hated building Norman Foster believes to be a “heroic” structure, after the break. Ada Tolla on Franz di Salvo’s Vele di Scampia in Naples, Italy: “For me it is important to recognize that the Vele is not a failure of the architecture, but rather a failure in execution and management.

We would still have unicorns around today were it not for an epic screw-up by Noah's son during the loading of the Ark all those years ago.

Why Don't We Have Unicorns Today?

That's the premise of this amusingly overblown Canal+ ad from BETC Paris and director Matthijs Van Heijningen, who so memorably directed "The Bear" for the same agency and client in 2011. It's hard to describe the ad without spoiling it, so just watch it first.

"We had some rather surreal discussions on what unicorns' balls actually look like," Stéphane Xiberras, agency president and chief creative officer, tells AdFreak. And the balls were the easy part of this production. How did the King of Thailand get to be worth $30 billion, the World's Richest Royal, according to Forbes?
