"Je pousse la porte de la cabane. En Russie, le formica triomphe. Soxante-dix ans de matérialisme historique ont anéanti tout sens esthétique chez le Russe. D’où vient le mauvais goût ? Pourquoi y a-t-il du lino plutôt que rien ? Comment le kitch s’est-il emparé du monde ? La ruée des peuples vers le laid fut le principal phénomène de la mondialisation. Pour s’en convaincre il suffit de circuler dans une ville chinoise, d’observer les nouveaux codes de décoration de La Poste française ou la tenue des touristes. Le mauvais goût est le dénominateur commun de l’humanité"

"For many the dream has become a poorly constructed, overpriced house in a lonely suburb. Schooling, culture and commerce are expected to thrive in hermetically sealed boxes with no architectural ambition. And millions of you are medicated because you’re depressed by your surroundings, the lack of infrastructure and the lack of human contact."
