Architecture = Oprah!


    My holiday card to you.

    In this age of the architecture world as an intellectual version of Oprah!

    Let's pause to remember the words of John Cage, and, the man who built cages, but really nice cages,
    Mr. Mies van der Rohe


    One of Mies van der
    Rohe’s pupils, a girl,
    came to
    him and said,
    “I have
    difficulty studying with you
    because you
    don’t leave any room for
    self-expression.”

    He asked her whether
    she had a pen with
    her.
    She did.


    He said,
    “Sign your name.”
    She did.


    He said,
    “That’s what I
    call self-expression.”
