Michael Rotondi talks with Eric Owen Moss on the occasion of the publication of Rotoworks: Still points. They discuss clients, fear, responsibility, and architecture as political critique. Rotondi argues that contemporary architecture fails to engage creatively with program. He suggests that silence and stillness are what unnerve people today. He also distinguishes invention from innovation, and stresses the need to slow down. Rotondi argues that complete originality is impossible; creativity always occurs in a context.
