The Right to Be Lazy

written by Ana Dana Beroš
...If we transfer the focus from art to architecture, we can ask ourselves rightfully whether a Croatian architect, who has been suffering from ‘recession laziness’ for quite some time now and starts to forget the original meaning of the word productivity, will become ‘lazy in a pragmatic sense’? Will he start to deal with different questions of architecture – those that are outside and above the law of the market, in other words, system of global productions, exchange and consumption? Is it worth hoping that the ‘right to architectural laziness’ will initiate another series of questions which are already on the way – symbolically or at the barricades? And eventually, can we imagine architecture which would ‘materialize the value of laziness’?
