"Alteration puts into question how architecture with a capital A can emerge through projects that are understood in terms of adjustment, of calibrating. Alteration escapes the limit of form implied in "transformation", the limit of use implied in "reuse", of newness implied in "renovation" and of fit implied in "retrofit". In all these avoidances, alteration avoids being restricted by deep structures in architectural discourse that finally pertain to definitions of the architectural work and to authorship. Implying change in an obtuse, everyday way, alteration allows us to think about architecture from a different outset."
