Ok, guys, this series of posts are actually from my notes in preparation for a lecture on BUIILDING IN CONTEXT which I had hoped to deliver next week. But, as you might need to set your minds in motion towards a clear concept for the coming Wed/Thurs presentation and grading, I've decided to post them here in note form. Hopefully you'll get something out of it. They will quite obviously (hello Sheng Hao!) be fully fleshed out for the lecture.

The super-new ON old.
NOT a language of columns, beams, walls, roofs, but of collision and explosion.
Like singing jazz in a period opera house.
No mimicing of preceding architectural preoccupations.
