...scale-rotate manipulation of the model collection . . . (the title could be Arbitrarily Unthinking an Architecture.) ...extrude portions of building plans that have been arbitrarily moved around in 3d.
An architectural Ulysses?
2001.09.09: In "Remembering to Forget" one learns that damnatio memoriae actually did more to make people remember than it did to make them forget. Officially and literally, the memory was erased, however, the act of erasure itself, like the scar that it is, only reinforces the real reality that once was. Yes, erasures ironically are very full of meaning...
2001.09.09: So which is the most valuable aesthetic when it comes to architecture?
Is 'what a building really is' that which is most valuable in terms of being the harbinger of architectural aesthetics?
Is the real harbinger of aesthetics the way in which architecture is presented (which is largely separate from the building itself)?
Is architectural aesthetics really only that non-tangible (or at least non-built) apparatus that sets up the presentation (of the image) and in turn more or less subliminally sets up the platform of appreciation within the minds of those receiving the image?
2003.09.08: It has also been written that "Less is a Bore." Correct me if I'm wrong.

Maybe Roma Interrotta is really just still going on.
