Yoshio Taniguchi -

Yoshio Taniguchi is the architect of the renovated MOMA in NYC. When approached, Taniguchi said, ‘If you raise really a lot of money, I will make the architecture disappear.’ It seems he has. The building has received favorable reviews, and Jane was impressed with the openness of the space, the feel.

I am struck by how we try and hang a poem in just the same way, like a picture, that invites one in and out of it, and in and out of oneself. The structure of the poem should be invisible, while the intention and feeling are clear. The poet makes a space, not too intimidating, rather cozy, in fact, with rugs and chairs, and then, the poet takes them away, so you can see what also is there. At least, that is how it feels to me in the moment. As though a magic rug is offered; the flight is begun, and then, you realize the rug is no longer there, and you are still up in the air.
