原文摘录

Who does not long for that histrionic branch of the profession that leapt like clowns--pathetic yet courageous--off one cliff after another, hoping to fly, flapping with inadequate wings, but enjoying at least the free-fall of pure speculation? Maybe such nostalgia is not merely a longing for the former authority of this profession (no one can seriously believe that architecture has become less authoritarian) but simply for fantasy.

A contradiction lies at the heart of contextualist design: in the contextualists' favorite examples, these collisions and aborted utopias are literally generated by the course of events over long periods of time; but the modern contextualist is forced to telescope vicissitudes of centuries into a single moment of conception. In an act of more-or-less inspired projection, the contextualist generates a scenario that simulates the history of the next 400 to 500 years. Through this extrapolation in the name of history, the contextualist short-circuits historical continuity. The contextualist's search for empirical necessity-- the circumstantial forces that will inflect the pure model-- can become frantic.
