"If Le Corbusier agreed that 'everything is Architecture,' he also called for film to concentrate on its own laws; Eisenstein, similarly, abandoned a career as an architect and stage designer precisely because the film offered a new and different stage of representational technique for modernity. For Le Corbusier architecture was a setting of the athletic and physical life of the new man; its objects and settings the activators of mental and spiritual activity through vision; for Eisenstein architecture remained only a potential film, a necessary stage in aesthetic evolution, but already surpassed." -Anthony Vidler, Warped Space: Art, Architecture, and Anxiety in Modern Culture

Anthony Vidler is a professor of architecture and dean of the Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture at The Cooper Union, NYC.
