Footnotes

The structure of the work itself is problematic. Are we to regard it as a building in the accepted sense or should we rather think of it as a grossly enlarged piece of furniture, interjected into an altogether larger realm? ➡︎

The Maison de Verre is the transformable plan par excellence; "transformable" to such a degree that the raison d'être of its transformation ranges from necessity, to convenience, to subtle poetic variation. ➡︎
