Gateway Arch St. Louis

Joshua Ramus

Joshua Ramus:

“I love the St. Louis arch — it has very little performance requirement other than being really damn beautiful... So, you can’t separate form and function. They are intertwined. I don’t think that a solely functional building is ever going to be truly performative because... What about joy, you know? I don’t ever want to talk about it in those terms.”
