Comment

This extraordinary man shocked me into who I am now. He removed ridiculous certainties about architecture in terms of style and, instead, talked about architecture as a thing deeply culturally placed while openly enjoyed - a thing human! Fluid drew heavily on the wonderful and apocryphal talks he gave at the Architectural Association (though I was then a confused student to be honest). Everything he said seemed to challenge received wisdom and to be about people. I feel with his passing, a major figure who the world of architecture can respond to, is lost. If we are 'big enough' we can take on-board what he said. Let's do that!
