“Kind of Architecture”

Paul Preissner Architects

“As neoliberalism continues to devour anything that was once decent in the world, architecture has suffered a fate of depressing compliance with heralded design seemingly always being about bigness or priciness or complicated and advanced technology-ness, or shiny-material-ness, or whatever late capitalism demands resulting in a bland world of expensive and suffocatingly airless buildings with no politics and no ideology and no nothing. Kind of is my way to get out of this mess, and this lecture is probably about that way out.” Paul Preissner
