"This is just plain fun. Making buildings that exist, just piling them on – stone and glass and concrete out of control. And the cranes mean that they will just continue on and on. Even the crazy cranes are part of the architecture – you’d think they’d all get in each other’s way."  -- Robert Morris

"I like cranes. They’re very interesting sets of straight lines … and staircases that go up many levels … and the geometry of aqueducts and old and new buildings – and putting all these disparate geometries and histories together."  --Robert Morris{/blockquote]

"I started with 3 classical Roman columns of three different orders and thought I’d wing it from there. On top of these I put three historic Italian style buildings -- one is actually at Yale. They looked like little bird houses. Then I decided to put a bridge connecting them which would help to determine their scale. Then since I had the bridge I put cars on it, giving it a further sense of scale. Then I thought the bottom was a little empty so I put in a tsunami."
