Architects are crazy, but Peter Eisenman took this craziness to another level. Ladies and gentleman please visit your district or campus library and search for his book – “Chora I Works”.
No, Peter Eisenman is not a worm, not a book worm either, I have no idea why that punch-card ballot box look but it is really annoying, the worst part about all of his books and I mean all of his books is the lack of image titles, not a single diagram comes with a title.
It takes a thief to catch a thief, and if you so happen to understand his work… good luck. I guess that is why Peter Eisenman was not chosen for the Pritzker Architecture Prize, anyway, his client the Franks has this to say:
Architects famously fail to follow up on the success or failure of their work when it is complete. Once those beautiful, and unoccupied, buildings appear in Architectural Record, the job is done. There seem to be few studies of how architecture evolves under habitation. by Suzanne Frank
