This project dates from 1984, and its caption, "This may seem an inordinately abstract and circuitous entry into our subject." may now not seem so provocative or even accurate. (The caption, incidentally is a quote from an essay by Hayden White in his study of historical writing as narrative form.)

The project, entitled Cuber(t) was prepared for an exhibition at the Leo Castelli Gallery in New York and the James Corcoran Gallery in Los Angeles entitled "Follies, Architecture for the late-twentieth century landscape"and consisted for the most part of attempts by the "big boys" of architecture to foist off highly fetishized fragments of their work in the new-found venue of prestigious art galleries. Some things have changed a lot since then. Others have not. Let me read you the text that I prepared to accompany the piece.

In 1982 rejecting the physical object as the endpoint of architecture was a far more controversial position than it has become in the meantime. Appropriation of the discourse of criticism was barely recognized as an architectural strategy, Athough Peter Eisenman's Folly showed that its elaboration was in full swing. Terms like Cyberspace or Hypertext were simply unknown to architecture.

Cuber(t) was the projection of my own desire to enter Cyberspace.
