Gold Poster, 1981

''Earlier purist work was not, as is commonly thought, abandoned with the plunge into the figurative; its architectonic discipline now exists just below the decorated surface. Recently gold, the metal, has become the metaphoric subject of Gold, the architect. In the context of contemporary ‘Verlust der Mitte’, to have such a ready-made absolute is enviable and the obsession has proved most fruitful as a source of architectural delight.'’
