Nieuw-Babylon

1961

Introduction at the lectures series Architektuur Commentaar (Architecture Criticism) by Professor ir. J.H. van den Broek at the TH Delft, The Netherlands.

Current society presented me with the choice between solitary confinement in an ivory tower or commercial slavery, I chose to revolt. I went into hiding in New-Babylon. And from my hiding place I organise a guerilla against the existing culture, or whatever is left of that. Constant in his lecture at TH Delft, 1961.
