Quotation in Art and Architecture


I’m very happy to announce that my most recent art & law essay, Primary Structure: Law, Power, Architecture, has been published in Perspecta: The Yale Architectural Journal. Among other subjects, the essay analyzes not only appropriation as we’ve come to know it, but also architectural-artistic projects that appropriate law as medium; some more successfully than others.

This issue of Perspecta—the oldest and most distinguished student-edited architectural journal in America—explores the uneasy lines between quotation, appropriation, and plagiarism, proposing a constructive reevaluation of contemporary means of architectural production and reproduction.

Grab the issue, Quote, while it lasts. I thank Russell LeStourgeon, Violette Paquerette, and AJ Artemel for their patience with me and for doing such a wonderful job as editors.
