Eisenman: I think a beautiful building is a modern building.
Krier: That is a contradiction in terms.
Eisenman: Who is to judge?
Eisenman: Then there are no judges?
Krier: One must be one's own judge because other judges are unreliable.
Eisenman: But you once one said that people who design modern buildings will probably burn in hell. You then become their judge.
Krier: Yes. Rather, they force others to live in their hell.
Eisenman: How can you know that? Who puts you in touch with those facts?
Krier: I just observe how and where architects live; they rarely live in their own buildings or in new towns. That is only a fine point.
