From the Ted Talk by Daniel Libeskind: 17 words of architectural inspiration

Unscramble the Blue Letters

So the important thing actually, is to introduce the aauctl architectural dsmoiennis, which might be totally inexplicable in wdors, because they operate in proportions, in materials, in light. They connect themselves into various sources, into a kind of complex vector mrtiax that isn't really frontal but is really embedded in the lives, and in the history of a city, and of a people. So again, the notion that a building should just be explicit I think is a flsae notion, which has reduced architecture into banality.

So the important thing actually, is to introduce the ______ architectural __________, which might be totally inexplicable in _____, because they operate in proportions, in materials, in light. They connect themselves into various sources, into a kind of complex vector ______ that isn't really frontal but is really embedded in the lives, and in the history of a city, and of a people. So again, the notion that a building should just be explicit I think is a _____ notion, which has reduced architecture into banality.

Original Text

So the important thing actually, is to introduce the actual architectural dimensions, which might be totally inexplicable in words, because they operate in proportions, in materials, in light. They connect themselves into various sources, into a kind of complex vector matrix that isn't really frontal but is really embedded in the lives, and in the history of a city, and of a people. So again, the notion that a building should just be explicit I think is a false notion, which has reduced architecture into banality.
