"Most people concerned with architecture feel some sort of disillusion and dismay. None of the early utopian ideals of the twentieth century have materialized, none of its social aims have succeeded. Blurred by reality, the ideals have turned into redevelopment nightmares and the aims into bureaucratic policies. The split between economic constraints and the illusion of all-solving technique absolute."
-Bernard Tschumi, The Architectural Paradox 1975
