Even before I started doing architecture, I always regarded categorization as an impediment to knowledge. Breaking knowledge down into different disciplines and artistic spheres is useful for the purposes of specialization, but the world is not compartmentalized in such a way. In order to understand society, and even art, one must break the frontier of the discipline, break the scheme of the category. Architecture was a discipline very cloistered in its own logic. I wanted to open it up and confront my projects with these alternative approaches.
