“With all the ingenuousness of the architect who was fed up with rational architecture and who dreamt of anarchitecture, Alain Bourbonnais created an initiating circuit, a labyrinth with surprise-rooms to be opened surreptitiously, at the risk of being filled with shudder and horror, such as the black room where Marshall’s “bourrages” lean and lie. You climb up steep and narrow flights of steps. You cross walls. All is strange. surprising. and unusual. All is provoking. All is spell-binding. ”
