“There are no walls, only partitions, shimmering membranes frequently covered in mirror or gold.”

 

“Structure groans invisibly underneath decoration, or worse, has become ornamental…”

 

“…huge beams deliver cyclopic burdens to unsuspecting destinations…”

Rem Koolhaas, “junk-space,” Brendan McGetrick, ed., Content, Taschen (Köln, London, etc., 2004), p. 163. Images are of Milstein Hall, Cornell University, designed by OMA.
