Quondam: a "playground"
...Quondam should henceforth be something that a real museum is not or cannot be. There is a long footnote re: muse in Homo Ludens that is very inspiring as to what a virtual museum could be.

Just did a side by side chronological overview of the work of Gehry and Eisenman, and in terms of architectonic, geometrical experimentation, Gehry manifests a greater and more mature repertoire.
Eisenman goes through a lot of intellectual and theoretical rigor to ultimately arrive at his geometry, but Gehry simply demonstrates that the intellectual and theoretical rigor isn't even necessary when it come to unprecedented architectonic geometries.
The only reason Eisenman's approach gets respect is because it fits well into 'higher' education. To have students pay large amounts of money to then learn that, "Hey, just look at Gehry, you can design pretty much anyway you want these days." just wouldn't go over well.

The building is neither sculptural nor a folly.
sculpture
1. the art or practice of shaping figures or designs in the round or in relief, as by chiseling marble, modeling clay, or casting in metal
folly
1. unreason: thoughtlessness, recklessness, or thoughtless or reckless behavior
2. irrational thing: a thoughtless or reckless act or idea
3. eccentric building: a building of eccentric or overelaborate design, usually built for decorative rather than practical purposes
The building is a museum and, like LEGOs themselves, architectonic.
architectonic
1. of architecture or architectural qualities: relating to architecture or the qualities such as design and structure that architecture requires

"Oh, that's not my architect. That's my legal loop-hole. And the cheapest legal loop-hole at that. Worth every penny, literally."
