“If architecture were redefined in this way, it might become more scrupulous and less responsible, smaller and less predictable, worth less but better, as the hope would be, would it not, that in giving grandiose pretensions to represent and define the social world in both its imaginative and active aspects ( a project the unlikelihood of which is comparable to the unlikelihood of compiling a legal code that also a good novel – an ambition that can only be confounded in practice) architecture may, by contraction and concentration constitute itself anew?” – Robin Evans, “Translations from Drawing to Building”
