Eric Owen Moss responds to the proposed topic by describing his Penelope theory of architecture, in which building and making are necessarily accompanied by unmaking and doubt. He reviews important influences, including the radicalized environment of Berkeley in the 1960s, Corbusier’s proposed balance of Apollo and Dionysus, El Caracol in Chichen Itza, and Immanuel Velikovsky. He contrasts a sketch by Erich Mendelsohn with his later Einstein Tower, arguing that by failing to address
the implications of initial idea, Mendelsohn “built the outside of the sketch.”
