Idea for a method of architecture which is not about new ideas about the sort of buildings that need to be made but simply about editing old actual building with no recourse to theory, even a simple cutting and pasting: of taking just the corner from that one huge house and blowing it up to make it the whole house or pattern of a house, or patching together hundreds of different styles. Architecture as seen and manipulated through a computer interface.

Had a supremely stupid idea of a house I’d like to live in: the facade a grid of fourty or fifty historical styles juxtaposed. However, the facade of the house would be like a television screen and the house itself would be a smaller reducing cone, that finally became a tunnel, just a wall of earth at the tail’s end. (Then the tunnel would lead to some distant river.)
