Abstract: Peter EIsenman writes in The End of the Classical: The End of the Beginning, the End of the The End; “that the activity of reading architecture, objects and spaces is an activity of recognizing them as a language. Reading, in this sense, makes a level of indication available rather than a level of meaning or expression. Every object, model and drawing, should be made with the awareness that it can be read similar to a text. In other words the objects must have the capacity to reveal themselves as a reading event. The reader is not presumed to know the nature of truth in the object, the reader should be able to use it as a medium.”
