Realignments (Excerpt)

Since it is my conviction that the structural character of our discipline, precisely insofar as it is an artistic practice, requires working with empirical conditions as project material, I attribute great importance to the discussion of their nature and meaning when I put together an architectural project. To recognize this means neither to legitimize nor to participate in such empirical conditions but to assume them as an object of criticism and, by means of the tools of our discipline, make them into project materials.

This naturally has nothing to do with transforming architects into pure technicians, managers, or cultural organizers, and even less into traffickers of politics, but, on the contrary, it has to do with resisting attempts that try to expel us from our universe of specific competencies or with combating those approaches to architecture that aim to exclude us from it, rendering it purely decorative.
