„Weird Science: Excerpts from a Diary“ Dear Diary, do we want to win this competition or not? Of course, juries, not architects, decide competitions, but first there is our own, invisible judgement: for each project there is a beyond – a domain where no jury will follow. Greater than the total loss to all the conspiracies, political pressures, blatant corruption – all those „masterworks“ that they didn t give first prize – is the tragedy of the even more brillant works that we didn t dare to imagine. Wanting to win a competition is not the same as wanting to do your best possible work. Anyway, don t be paranoid; forget names, juries are a mere statistical sample, their „plots“ are just a message from the real world (you don t kill the messenger).“ Rem Koolhaas, In: S, M, L, XL. Rotterdam: 010 Publishers 1995, p.604.
