taking measure across our designed landscape
“Modern Architecture’s range of expression is today from A to B. We build isolated buildings with no regard to the space between them, monotonous and endless streets, too many goldfish bowls, too few caves. We tend to build merely diagrams of buildings. The diagram consists of regularly spaced bays, with the long sides filled with glass and the end walls filled with some opaque material. If we raise it on pilotis we might even snare and important prize ….. We need creativity as well as unity.”
