The dissonance and the paradox | Marcelo Gardinetti

“Since the mid-seventies, Stirling has shown his struggle against the boredom produced by the repetition of modern architecture, against its triviality and its inability to situate itself in historical contours.

Affinity in contrast | Marcelo Gardinetti
