|Modernity and nostalgia often collide in Ben Katchors color strips appearing in the design magazine Metropolis since 1998. With titles such as Chipped-Cup Inspector and A Date in Architectural History, Katchors strips complement the magazines exploration of the context of designeconomic and environmental, social and cultural, political and technological. Everything in the urban environmentfrom modernist buildings to gated storefronts to public statuarybecomes a fitting subject for Katchors cataloguing of urban relics.|
