“Double Vision”

Proposal for Center for World Music and Dance (2002)

Site: Isle of Capri

Client: Chinese Writers Association

Music: Philip Kraus


I revisited a 2002 Columbia University GSAPP project when our son returned from China in February. The premise of the original project was the “monstrous,” exemplified by Adalberto Libera’s design for Casa Malaparte.


“Single vision produces worse illusions than double vision or many-headed monsters.”
