"In Bigness, the distance between core and envelope increases to the point where the façade can no longer reveal what happens inside. The humanist expectation of “honesty” is doomed: interior and exterior architectures become separate projects, one dealing with the instability of programmatic and iconographic needs, the other – agent of disinformation – offering the city the apparent stability of an object.
Although Bigness is a blueprint for perpetual intensity, it also offers degrees of serenity and even blandness. It is simply impossible to animate its entire mass with intention. Its vastness exhausts architecture’s compulsive need to decide and determine. Zones will be left out, free from architecture."
"I have always been impacted by women characters who claimed their masculine side - Katharine Hepburn, Charlotte Rampling, Georges Sand, Helene Abelen by August Sander … This is where I think freedom is, in the gap between. I could say the same for men who accept their feminine part."
