My interests have been consistent throughout my career: the relationship between art and architecture. From ancient to present, whether it’s land art or St. Peters or the Roman Forum or the temples in Korea. And landscape. I think what happened in the 19th century was a segmentation. If you go back in time, it’s hard to find an example of when art and architecture were not thought of in an integral way. It’s only recently that we have come to segment these topics. My view is you gain something in specialization, but you lose a lot. So what I’ve tried to do is remarry art, architecture, and landscape in a sense that has meaning. Not with a spine and a symmetry, which is not relevant to modern Los Angeles. As long as you have the grid, the idea is to twist and turn that. It’s a lot of yin-yang. Renzo’s building and Peter’s building is yin-yang.
