Eisenman Architects : Selected and Current Works. It is difficult to say which is the more impressive career accomplishment: to have generated an endlessly renewed trail of agitative hypotheses over a year period, or to have eschewed nearly all the comforts of consolidation - and the inevitable complacencies - afforded by conventional, repeatable "successes" such as the production of "great" buildings or the development of a signature style. In both these respects, Peter Eisenman differs not only from other architechts of his own generation, but from nearly all other architects working today. When Eisenman's work began in the early sixties, it was, and remains to this day, a primarily tactical enterprise: its force from the outset was drafted from that of the enemy - classicism - but was also turned aggressively against it Eisenman's task has been to develop a practice that, to borrow an expression from Foucault and Nietzsche, would come from outside There is not now, nor has there ever been, a fixable Eisenmanian alternative architecture; tactical space after all is made up of a series of seized "occasions," so that the momentary triumphs that punctuate its unfolding campaign are never - indeed cannot be - stored.
