a place through which the world passes,
for the sustenance of that place and our situated selves,
and for our very sense of being in-place.

a place from which we go to a world which is immediate and present and to hand.

Einstein’s Tomb by Lebbeus Woods

“In 1980, Lebbeus Woods proposed a tomb for Albert Einstein – the so-called Einstein Tomb – inspired by Boullée’s famous Cenotaph for Newton. But Woods’s proposal wasn’t some paltry gravestone or intricate mausoleum in hewn granite: it was an asymmetrical space station traveling on the gravitational warp and weft of infinite emptiness, passing through clouds of mutational radiation, riding electromagnetic currents into the void.”
