I would not say that my relationship to Guggenheim ever remains casual, or that it could ever become an ordinary site in its surroundings. It inspires me to think about the body in its environment; and one ‘parallel’ word with the movement of the body, is stretching. In my mind, this building is stretching.
What we can learn from the architecture, is that the ‘methods’, the very functioning of the objects in space specify the form. The functioning is crucial. How did this form become societally acceptable, is a good question.
In the movement terms, as the leap stretches spatially, how to measure quantity? Where exactly is the point of landing, how to measure the stretching as quantity? Form in a leap is merely a question of how long the body can sustain the stretching..
In the architecture, making the form societal means that stretching becomes a point of landing. (onwards)
