About the overlapping areas of architecture and anarchy. This blog is to expose ideas and thoughts for your criticism, as I feel that it is only with the help of publicity and thus dialogue that one can actually develop the proces of thinking. Start the dialogue here!

Either we must submit entirely to the authority of our government, or we must dispense with it altogether. It is not for us to settle what degree of obedience we owe to it.

Architecture is not about the conditions of design, but about the design of conditions that will dislocate the most traditional and regressive aspects of our society and simultaneously reorganize these elements in the most liberating way, where our experience becomes the experience of events organized and strategized through architecture. Strategy is a key word in architecture today. No more masterplans, no more locating in a fixed place, but a new heterotopia. This is what our cities must strive towards and what we architects must help them to achieve by intensifying the rich collision of events and spaces. Tokyo and New York only appear chaotic. Instead, they mark the appearance of a new urban structure, a new urbanity. Their confrontations and combinations of elements may provide us with the event, the shock, that I hope will make the architecture of our cities a turning point in culture and society.
