Just got a 1823 edition of Durand's Précis des leçons d'architecture this past Saturday, and seeing it now next to Hejduk's books inspires a comparative reenactionary analysis.

Dwell - suggestions/future directions
I like the little address stickers dwell sends me like twice a year as an incentive for me to subscribe to the magazine. Keep up the good work.
How did they get my new address so quickly? It's probably because I just sold a house and they look up records like that for potential subscribers.

I'm still waiting for a shelter magazine to complement my life style, you know, like something called HELL!

For the pleasure of sharing ideas, through the poetry of the printed word
My predominate stlye is 'letter writing' style. Honest, easy and personal.
What I'd like to do more of is 'fictitious historical dialogue'.
As of yesterday, reading Duboy (again) along with ongoing Montesquieu and spotty Foucault--bricolage plus letters plus Las Meninas etc. Mix that with 'fictitious historical dialogue' and you have my next book project.
It's a book about all kinds of style. The working title is über œuvred e suicidal. Piranesi hires a Quaker lawyer to fix historical inaccuracies while the Quaker lawyer hires Piranesi to design an historically accurate house. Neither knew of the other's true propensity--playful double-meaning meets good-natured honesty--yet they discover themselves to be a formidable team. You'll think you're laughing and you'll laugh about thinking.
