Re: Re: AAI Awards 2008
Pure freedom? I can’t agree. Parameters and constraints should be the very foundations of the creative process.
I’m pretty keen on this principle; so keen, in fact, that I keep a notebook for quotes on the subject. The title of the notebook? Liberty has meaning only in a context of restraint. It’s the last line of the Palladio chapter in James S Ackerman’s book on the villa.
I do agree, though, that simply ticking boxes for ‘compliance with the regs’ is a pretty bunk position.
Whether or not the exhibition is any good, this thread has reminded me to stick my head in for a look.
