1982 discussion between Christopher Alexander and Peter Eisenman, via MeFi

  • Christopher Alexander: The thing that strikes me about your friend's building -- if I understood you correctly -- is that somehow in some intentional way it is not harmonious. That is, Moneo intentionally wants to produce an effect of disharmony. Maybe even of incongruity.
  • Peter Eisenman: That is correct.
  • Christopher Alexander: I find that incomprehensible. I find it very irresponsible. I find it nutty. I feel sorry for the man. I also feel incredibly angry because he is fucking up the world.
