  10. What U Can Do, Shadrach Woods

    Architecture at Rice, 1970

     

  11. "We got away from arbitrary form-making and went all the way to the other extreme of over-emphasis on systems and systems analysis, of not knowing enough to be able to decide, not enough about new and constantly evolving technologies, not enough about sociological implications of urbanism and architecture, not enough about a welter of perplexing new disciplines. And we then fall back upon the computer, waiting for printout."
