And I Quote

From a nice little book titled ‘the architect says’:

“I believe context is an incredibly overestimated word and an alibi for a lot of operations.  There is only one kind of architectural context between two things that are of equivalent size or value.  It’s very important for us to liberate ourselves from the notion of having respect for context, as a kind of reflex, an automatism.  We have to be more skeptical about context.”

Rem Koolhaas

“The architecture we remember is never that which consoles or comforts us.”

Peter Eisenman
