[Modern architecture] embodied the dream of the last beach on which you could lie down. It can be no more than the construction of a social world [...] a bricolage of a thousand different utopias [...] traditional urbanism and architecture operate on the level of absolute utopia. Through their very presence alone they continue to unconsciously appropriate the world, with their architectonic tools and their values of a formal culture which extents to the functions of the home. This is a terminal utopia which has none-the-less created a crises of social relations within architecture itself. Branzi, Introduzione al design italiano 11
