“Art’s reaction is to preserve these alternative, strange spaces. As a reflection of the imprecise fluctuations of nature, they are a source of fascination. When architecture and urban design project their desire onto a vacated space, too often it seems capable of doing anything other than introducing violent transformations; turning the foreign into the familiar, changing estrangement into citizenship, and striving at all costs to dissolve the ‘uncontaminated magic’ of the site into a realism of efficacy.” - Ignasi de Sola-Morales Rubio 1995
