[Starting Quotes]

“We are at an impasse: unable to return to the deductive model of ideal truths, but equally unable to rely on the inductive method or simple fact-checking to verify truth. How do we overcome this impasse?” (L.Parisi)

 

“First among the intellectual illusions to be done away with is that which, by means of the image alone, tries to anticipate the conditions of an architecture “for a liberated society.” Who proposes such a slogan avoids asking himself if, its obvious utopianism aside, this objective is persuable without a revolution of architectural language, method, and structure which goes far beyond simple subjective will or the simple updating of a syntax” (M.Tafuri)

 

“What we need is neither abstraction nor occupying, but the occupying of abstraction” (M.Wark)
