Quote of Note | Robert A.M. Stern

“The computer makes it possible for us to talk to our clients and collaborators around the world. The computer’s also made it possible to invent or discover new shapes. And that’s tricky because, yes, it is possible virtually to represent any shape you want. Everybody says, ‘Oh, Stern, you’re just old-fashioned.’ Well, maybe I am, but I still like right angles.

I don’t use a computer. I get e-mail, and it gets printed out for me, and I read it as though it was a letter sent to me in the mail. I write the answer longhand, and I get it typed. I take pride in what it looks like. I must say, many people who send you e-mails either can’t or won’t spell.”

-Architect and Yale School of Architecture dean Robert A.M. Stern in an interview with Sam Grobart for Bloomberg Businessweek‘s “Ice Cream Break: Questions Over Cones” series. Stern opted for coffee-flavored ice cream.
