Book: James Corner & Alex S. Maclean: Taking Measures Across The American Landscape

James Corner & Alex S. Maclean | Taking Measures Across The  American Landscape, 1996
‘The techniques of representation are never neutral and  architecture’s abstract means of imagining and realizing form leave  their traces on the work. To understand representation as technique (in  Foucault’s broader sense of techne) is therefore to pay attention to the  paradoxical character of a discipline that operates to organize and  transform material reality, but must do so at a distance, and through  highly abstract means.’ Stan Allen | Practice: Architecture, Technique and Representation, 2000
