DESIGN/WAR MANIFESTO

Design and war are not incompatible. Design is war. War is design.

I am at war with my time, with history, with all authority that resides in fixed and frightened forms.

I am one of millions who do not fit in, who has no home, no doctrine, nor firm place to call my own.

I declare war on all icons and finalities, on all histories that would chain me with my own falseness.

I am a constructor of worlds, a sensualist who worships the flesh.

Today, I commence the construction of a city.

– Inspired by Lebbeus Woods
