“I simply loathe the crude 1960s distinctions between commerce and art. For me, Warhol and pop obliterated all of those separations—that was the whole point of ‘Brillo Boxes’ and ‘Campbell’s Soup Cans.’ And believe it or not, moronic journalists are still saying to me, ‘Your work is so commercial.’ Didn’t we cover that 50 years ago? Where have you been? It’s so pathetic. If you do a museum, that’s sacred, and if you do a store, that’s profane. I just say, ‘Oh, please, get over it. I don’t know what rock you’ve been living under, but you have to crawl out.’ So, in a sense, I do have a Warholian thing going on. I loathe when architects only analyze architecture in intellectual, nonvisual ways. I really love direct response, and that’s very pop. I don’t want to discuss abstract transparencies with a bunch of kooks.” -Architect Peter Marino
