"Buildings are not empty containers awaiting their inhabitants. They are composed of a large and ever-changing array of objects. During construction, prioritizing certain objects — like walls, floors, roofs, etc. — limits appropriation itself. In order to increase the opportunities of appropriation, objects that are traditionally dealt with by architects to encompass the possibility of object — such as a wall, sink, chair —would need to be augmented."
