I'm often called an old-fashioned modernist. But the modernists had the absurd idea that architecture could heal the world. That's impossible. And today nobody expects architects to have these grand visions any more.
I've grown up a little bit. I understand the importance of the negotiation. It is a collective act.
So at a time in which the media give the public everything it wants and desires, maybe art should adopt a much more aggressive attitude towards the public. I myself am very much inclined to take this position.
The multiplicity of ideas is what Im interested in.
I think all good architecture should challenge you, make you start asking questions. You don't have to understand it. You may not like it. That's OK.
