"I received a commission to create something in the art center at Harvard University- the only building Le Corbusier ever built in North America. I didn’t know what to do. Finally I decided to look at all the archives, and I found that Le Corbusier also had a problem when he was commissioned to design the building at Harvard, and that he published a book about all the negotiations he had with the institution. I found myself in a similar position, and I decided to put the two situations in parallel in a kind of satire or an ironic parable."
