Quotes


'Architecture Needs an Enemy' - Eric Owen Moss


'We want architecture that has more to offer. Architecture that bleeds, exhausts, that turns and even breaks, as far as I am concerned. Architecture that glows, that stabs, that tears and rips when stretched. Architecture must be precipitous, fiery, smooth, hard, angular, brutal, round, tender, colourful, obscene, randy, dreamy, en-nearing, distancing, wet, dry and heart-stopping. Dead or alive. If it is cold, then cold as a block of ice. If it is hot, then as hot as a tongue of flame. Architecture must burn!'
-Wolf D. Prix + Coop himmelb(l)au


'We only exist in terms of how we think we exist. Meaning every cultural development is fabricated and can be fabricated.'
-Thom Mayne
