These citings convey misinformation. [sic] ...it appears that Husserl would have benefited from the realization that all memory (both his 'primary memory' and his 'secondary memory') are by default mental reenactments.

Is calling something "b-side" an example of commercialism creeping into architecture criticism. Hey, as long as it sells, right.

I'll go for the continuum idea as to where architecture is really at.

Because the stage set of the Palais des Congres is an amalgam of Maison Dom-ino and the parloirs of La Tourette, I've been finishing up a redrawing of La Tourette's level 3 plan. Thus I've been also looking closely at the images of La Tourette within OC vol. 7. Seeing the outside of the parloirs, you also see the studio of Hejduk's Wall House 2. And then there's the church of La Tourette, and then you realize that most of Hejduk's church designs from the 1990s are indeed elaborations of the church of La Tourette.
