Here's a take on the Chanel Mobile Art Pavilion we've never heard before: Randi Greenberg of Metropolis says it's a throwback to the Brady Bunch. In an early episode, "eccentric makeup magnate" Bibi Galinni asks architect Mike Brady to design a factory based on a powder puff, and the result looks a lot like Zaha Hadid's design. As lookalikes go, though, we're more amused by Greenberg's initial assessment of the pavilion, pictured after the jump.
