The Problematic Discourse on "Philippe Starck’s" Delano Hotel (1999) - Endnotes


1. I am using this form of in-text referencing, which adheres to the American Psychological Association (APA) referencing guidelines, and is used in academic journals including English for Specific Purposes (which has editorial offices in Hong Kong, UK, and US). As this is a study which emphasizes language, the choice is to emphasize the intertextuality of texts and to heighten the role of the texts under discussion, the writers, the publications, etc., and to emphasize a cumulative discourse.

2. Within an interactive art and design discourse, art installation could be discussed in a comparative manner.

3. It is perhaps important to note that Jansen’s book is now out of print, and if a second edition were undertaken, he would change it: "The text takes the determinist point of view that every artwork has a set of meaning found IN the artwork and, using professional methods, these can be determined. In the 1980’s this modernist privileging of the artwork has gone out of fashion. In our post-modern world, I now am inclined to nondeterministic approaches... I would have to rewrite and augment several sections." [Jansen, e-mail communication, 4 December 1998]. Yet, while Jansen’s calls for changes, the content "hit" interpretation works, whether pulled from inside the artwork or approached from outside.

4. While in Media Discourse (1995b) he specifically addressing media texts, the issues addressed in Fairclough’s work also address educational practices and academic publications, as they deal with the same sorts of issues.

5. Clayton (1992) and Hennessy (1997) were recommended reading by Sharon Wheeler from UCE’s Journalism course.

10. In this section, paragraphs 1 and 3 were approved by Paul Tackaberry, an international [trademark] lawyer at Baker & MacKenzie in Toronto, Canada. The second paragraph is based on my experiences and discussions in the art journalism field.

11. It should be noted that this key article does not appear in an Art Index search on "Starck" or "Schrager", and only appears with the search "Delano". As this article is the only one in the sample addressing the restoration controversy, many researchers will miss this article, particularly in searches for a survey of Starck’s work.

12. For example, imagine the genre switching if the claims in this dissertation needed to be employed in a 2000-word piece. Also, see Aldersey-Williams (1996) and Arcidi (1993); the former has a narrower theme asking the question "what is he really like to work with?". xxxx xxxxxx xxxx xxxxx xxxxxx xxxxx xxxxx xxxx xxxxxx xxxx xxxxxx xxxxxx xxxxx xxxxx xxxxx xxxxx xxxxx xxxxx Arcidi actively critiques the hotel in an experiential narrative without the other voices and quotation genre requirement.

13. A physically closer example illustrates this with the University of Central England’s handling of its recent Mapplethorpe book controversy; the published accounts differ from those inside the tainted ivory tower holding non-spokesmen positions— perhaps shaped by the sociocultural processes regarding "preferred" sources and academic sociopolitics.

14. Examining property records at the city or county offices would provide this information. However, the point is that in these writings, this research is usually not done. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

16. This structure is of course problematic. If Starck ripped out the interior of the Pantheon to create an interior for a discotheque, clearly this balanced approach would be problematic, xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

20. The on-line versions of articles sometimes do not indicate page numbers. In keeping with the in-text referencing procedure, APA was used for the bibliographies (See endnote 1).

23. Conversation with Paul Tackaberry, Baker & MacKenzie, Toronto, April 1999.

25. As this study focuses on the published writings across genres, further study would indicate the relationship between the Ian Schrager press kits and others across various types of strands (hotels, designer hotels, etc.).
