„В моей работе нет ничего такого, что делало бы ее исключительно мужской.“

„Все признают, что Азия сейчас очень влиятельна и богата. Богаче Европы.“


„…я когда-то очень интересовался советской архитектурой. В Гарварде мы также занимались исследованием коммунистической идеологии и способами ее репрезентации. Так что нам очень интересно работать в посткоммунистической России. И в Китае, где коммунистический режим.“

„Другая, не менее интересная для нас вещь — другой аспект архитектуры — консервация. Не создание нового, а сохранение старого. Это то, что сегодня меня особенно интересует.“

„There are books that I own that somehow even without reading them they mean something to me. So I think people have a relationship with books in a library whether you’ve come specifically to read them or not.“

„Architecture is a hazardous mixture of omnipotence and impotence. It is by definition a c h a o t i c a d v e n t u r e... In other words, the utopian enterprise.“ S, M, L, XL

„Find optimism in the inevitable“

„The cosmetic is cosmic.“ Content


„The Metropolis strives to reach a mythical point where the world is completely fabricated by man, so that it absolutely coincides with his desires.“

„If less is more, maybe nothing is everything.“

„Manhattanism is the one urbanistic ideology that has fed, from its conception, on the splendors and miseries of the metropolitan condition—hyper-density—without once losing faith in it as the basis for a desirable modern culture. Manhattan's architecture is a paradigm for the exploitation of congestion.“

„Architecture is a fuzzy amalgamation of ancient knowledge and contemporary practice, an awkward way to look at the world and an inadequate medium to operate on it. Any architectural project takes five years; no single enterprise—ambition, intention, need—remains unchanged in the contemporary maelstrom. Architecture is too slow. Yes, the word "architecture" is still pronounced with certain reverence (outside the profession). It embodies the lingering hope—or the vague memory of a hope—that shape, form, coherence could be imposed on the violent surf of information that washes over us daily. Maybe, architecture doesn't have to be stupid after all. Liberated from the obligation to construct, it can become a way of thinking about anything—a discipline that represents relationships, proportions, connections, effects, the diagram of everything.“ Content

„In a laughing mirror-image of the seriousness with which the rest of the world is obsessed with Progress, Coney Island attacks the problem of Pleasure, often with the same technological means.“ Delirious New York: A Retroactive Manifesto for Manhattan
