I'm quickly reminded of a short passage I read last night--
--which seems somewhat related to your analogically jumping comment/question.
Schumacher's passage unwittingly describes subversive reenactment. Is subversive reenactment then a key ingredient of avant garde design? See how Le Corbusier subversively reenacts via re-interpretation, the Villa Savoye.
There's the new movie Lincoln, which tries very hard to be as close to the original as possible, and earlier this year there was the movie Lincoln, Vampire Slayer. Does (historical) fiction sometimes easliy fall into the category of subversive reenactment?
The logisital objective of a crime-scene reenactment is to reproduce the crime as closely as possible, and the aim of the reenactment is for the police investigators to gain a form of eye-witness experience of the crime. Reenactment within the philosophy of history has the same aim.
Perhaps subversive reenactment just happens to be a very good way to come up with something new again.

I would just caution that reenactment, revivalism and appropriation have relationships to each other, but they are not the same thing. Also, the negative aspect of Schumacher's quote is how hard he tries to deny that reenactment is part of Hadid's early design process.

Another example of Le Corbusier subversively reenacting the Villa Savoye is the upper half of the Governor's Palace designed for Chandigarh.

Actually, subversively isn't really the right term. Le Corbusier metabolically reenacts the Villa Savoye.
