Amelyn Ng, a second year MSCCCP student, speaks with Mark Wigley in advance of his lecture at the school on November 12, 2018. Mark Wigley is Professor and Dean Emeritus at Columbia GSAPP and is the author of recently published Cutting Matta-Clark: The Anarchitecture Investigation. The book examines the work of Gordon Matta-Clark through extensive interviews and a dossier of archival evidence.
“Creating a stable reference point in an unstable world is the classical view of architecture. Life is weird, time is weird, but architecture just sort of stands there… Matta-Clark says what if it’s actually the other way around? What if architecture is the weird thing?” – Mark Wigley
