    In its freewheeling rewriting of the past, architecture uses history as a slingshot into the future. It endlessly re-stages itself, self-consciously folding its own past into its future, rewriting its own myth into its very fabric.

    The danger is that it’s just talk. Then again, the danger is that it’s not. I believe you can speak things into existence.
