The Regions-Harbert Plaza located in downtown Birmingham, AL. I’ve always admired this building. Birmingham is a city of mostly generic skyscrapers, so this one always sticks out.
I also discovered that there are not many good images of this skyscraper available online.
So yeah, I’m not dead.
Here’s three images of the Wonders of Life pavilion that used to reside in Epcot at Walt Disney World. The pavilion was all about health and human body related subjects, as you can assume from the title. As you may also assume from the title, there was a short film about reproduction starring Martin Short called the Making Of Me that was played here. Strange.
Anyway, the pavilion opened in 1989, and you can tell because the interior design and the architectural choices are very venuepunk-ish. The first picture is from the days when it was still open, and the last two are most likely from around 2005 or something; the pavilion closed in 2007 and has been sitting around since then, hosting events related to the seasonal shindigs that Epcot has.
Actually, no, disregard that early post. This is venuepunk fashion. Totally.
Yep, this blog’s been dead for a while. Not because I’ve given up, but because it’s difficult to find these things. I mean, ‘venuepunk’ ain’t a real word, and I can’t just search ‘90’s geometric pretty colours oooh’ and try to find something.
Anywho, beautiful Eurasian Mountain Dew label.
There was an Aladdin’s Castle in either Eastwood or Century Plaza mall a long, long time ago. At least I think it was. It was some sort of arcade place, I know that much.
Anyway, I’m really loving the checkerboard pattern used in the first picture, and the teal-coloured pillars in the second one are just crying out venuepunk.
firecr0tch asked: Have you ever heard of Swatch watches? Some of their watches from the 80s have a venuepunk look.
Not until just now, but they are pretty swank. Especially that one in the lower-right hand corner.
ermergerdjeschan asked: I'm confused. What exactly makes something 'venuepunk'?
FAQ. FAQ. FAQ.
If you’ve looked through all these posts and still don’t understand, then sadly I cannot help you.
