Body, Imagination, and Architecture
Earlier today, I was thinking how Western architecture came to the forefront of world architecture at the Renaissance/navel. Assimilation and purge then began to work in tandem, although seemingly separately. The (early) Modern Movement represents the crest of the purge (assimilation in the extreme) and now that the crest is past, we are in the midst of a metabolizing of the modern movement in architecture. I was thinking how many of the buildings in Quondam's collection are seminal pieces of the modern movement's metabolic phase, as well as some seminal pieces of the osmotic phase.

Re: Lebbeus Woods 2
I'll now forever remember July 3rd 2000. The cold water hose running to my washing machine burst, and when I finally came to the basement there was a half inch of water almost everywhere. The next four hours were spent laying a dozen bath towels all over the floor to soak up the water. My hands were raw for several days afterwards from wringing out all those towels many times repeatedly. About a month later I learned that John Hejduk died on July 3rd 2000. I love the entirely chance associations that memory so often makes.
