Re: <eyebeam><blast> Constant & Rem Koolhaas & Itsuko Hasegawa

dear Hans and Sjoukje,
All kinds of rational confusions -- this is not so paradoxical as it
appears at first sight -- can indeed be just uncritical products
disguising as "radical" art. Rem Koolhaas' important observation with
regards to urbanity vs. architecture can be linked to Adorno's warnings
concerning the delirious illusion of rational mastery. For me, the idea
of endless multiplicity circulating in the air is no less a delirium of
mastery then the idea of the One. What links Rem Koolhaas and Adorno is
the realization that technological mastery without the 'breath of the
spirit' is dead end. Dead. End.
