In Memoriam: Ada Louise Huxtable


“Every age cuts and pastes history to suit its own purposes; art always has an ax to grind. Classical Rome became the Renaissance in the eyes of the fifteenth century. Every great artist is re-created in the chosen image of a particular time. No “historic reconstruction” is ever really true to the original; there is neither the desire nor the courage to embrace another era’s taste. We keep what we like and discard what we don’t.”

—Ada Louise Huxtable, ”The Joy of Architecture”. New York Times, February 5, 1978
