ABSTRACT
The article offers the author's insights on the commonalities in the contexts of three quotations, authored by Leone Batisti Alberti, Le Corbusier, and Paul Virilio, regarding the house and city. The author explains that all cases of the quotations redefine the city in terms of crisis in technology, such as military, transportation, and communication technologies. The author explores how the city and the house are produced and associated with the disciplinary strategies of architecture.
