Less is a Bore - Venturi on Design

"I like the elements which are hybrid rather than "pure," compromising rather than "clean," distorted rather then "straightforward," ambiguous rather than articulated," perverse as well as impersonal, boring as well as "interesting," conventional rather than "designed," accommodating rather than excluding, redundant rather than simple, vestigial as well as innovating, inconsistent and equivocal rather than direct and clear. I am for messy vitality over obvious unity. I include the non sequitur and proclaim the duality. I am for richness of meaning rather than clarity of meaning; for the implicit function as well as explicit function."
