“Experience is the axis on which the Laboratory of Literary Architecture spins. The Laboratory for Literary Architecture pushes students to compose through their model a fictional architectural experience. Donald Bartheleme’s Concerning the Bodyguard is ‘translated into skyscrapers.’ Raymond Carver’s What We Talk About When We Talk About Love is a pavilion inside a ‘sunken ellipse’ with a ‘false wall.’ Virginia Woolf’s To the Lighthouse is a house set on a steep cliff.”
