Publisher's Description

In 1930, duck farmer Martin Maurer from Flanders, Long Island, decided to construct a giant duck-shaped shop to sell the Peking ducks they raised to passing motorists. In 1972, in the book Learning from Las vegas, Robert Venturi, Denise Scott- Brown, and Steven Izenour, outlined 2 main concepts of popular, fonctionnal and commercial architecture: the decorated shed and the "Duck". In 2014, Olivier Cablat tries to re-activate the concept of the "Duck" by building a massive digital archive, without any geographical and historical limit. This archive is made by a part of personnal pictures, digitalised books and found pictures on the digital touristic and curiosity databases from the Internet.
